    I posted this yesterday, but I can't find it, so here it is again. This article talks about when we might see the Wii at $199, the price I was hoping for all along.

    When do you think the price will drop?

    depends on sales my friend.

    good year, price will probably stay the same.

    bad year, price will probably go down.

    I expect Nintendo to roll out a $199 Wii by next June or hopefully sometime around the SSBB release, as they did with the N64.

    The main cause for a reduction in price will not be due to competition, but rather that they will be shrinking the die of the processor to 65nm, allowing them to produce higher yields per 300mm x 300mm wafer.

    This means that if a current 90nm die would cost them $10 to make, a 65nm one will cost them $5.
