The Wii may still look to be dominating the consoles charts, but the truth is its unit sales are down by as much as 50% year-over-year. Because of this drop in sales, Nintendo will most likely consider a holiday price cut. At least according to Michael Pachter.

Said the Wedbush Morgan analyst, "We believe Nintendo will be more promotional, and will consider price cuts in order to increase sales during the holidays." They also expect a steady flow of sales, thanks to the upcoming Motion Plus peripheral add-on, and new games like Wii Fit Plus, New Super Mario Bros. Wii and The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.

Gotta sell more of those hotcakes.

there is only so many people interested in video games in the world.

True, but I doubt Nintendo has reached everyone in the audience they are aiming at. Namely, non gamers. Maybe making the console's price compete more with the entry level Xbox will boost sales.
How would a price cut at this point in the console's lifecycle compare with the price drop of the NES, SNES or GC? Is it earlier, the same or later?
Lol, I doubt there will be a price cut for the Wii, it's cheap enough already.
They might lower it $25-$50 to try to get higher sales over the holidays to stock reasons
