Anyone know when it will drop
Welcome to Wiichat! I hope you enjoy your stay.
I'm not really sure. .. .. Christmas this year?
When people story buying it perhaps?
id say x-mas...to 219 or 199
It honestly depends mainly on when Microsoft and Sony drop their prices. Especially Microsoft as it could lower the cost of the $300 to $250 (American Dollars). Then Nintendo might lower it, and I emphasize 'might'. Honestly though I wouldn't expect it anytime soon as it hasn't even been out a year yet.
not for awile. the wii is already the cheapest console by far, so why would they need to drop the price?
With it selling the way it is, there is absolutely no reason to make a price drop. However, when 360 goes down it indeed probably will. Why ruin a good thing? Nintendo is raking in the dough obviously, and its very doubtful it will be anytime soon.
yeah when supply is more than demand, then they will drop it
i'm thinking in about a year
Is it not cheap enough?...
I would assume late this year early next year though. Probably early next year, just so they can make a big profit for this Christmas.
i thought price drops only happen when the system isnt selling as well as it used to. Well according to the news channel on my wii, it says sales have actually increased since april to may, and even more from may to june! They predict that this calamity over the Wii will quiet down after Christmas. So if a price drop is going to happen, itll probably be summer of next year.
well in Canada...after 1 month of the wii being out...it went up 10dollars..not down..went up!
Exactly what I was thinking. What would Nintendos motivation be? Even if the 360 and PS3 dropped their prices the Wii would still be less expensive right?
wow eric, you were right it did go up 10 dollars,...................weird\
yeah i stick by my guess of saying in one year, so summer of next year
Dude are u on crack? At x-mas they said the max drop would be was 250!
You are wrong. The wii went up in Canada in May buy 10$, not a month after it came out!
yeah that's already like 15%
i think that would be the ideal price drop
I can't see the price going down for a while yet, not the way they're still in demand!
Guys, the Wiis are still selling out just as fast as stores can get them. I dont think anyone, even Nintendo knows when the prices are dropping.
Nintendo tends to do price drops after 1 year of release. Probably X-mas, or early next year. They will probably drop the price $50-$100. Nintendo can easily drop the price by $100. There is nothing in that console that was costly to build. Imagine 2008, a $300, maybe $200 360, $150 Wii, and a $500-$600 PS3.
I'd say until after the good games stop getting made.
Because there will be a load of sales for when SSBB comes out.
And then even more sales when a Mario Kart Wii comes out (If it ever comes out).
Not for a very long time.
I'd say maybe.... 2 or 3 years down the line.
