Remember the halcyon days of motion gaming? When the Wii
was selling to everyone and everyone's grandmother in such huge volumes that Nintendo couldn't keep up
? That time is long-past and, after the most recent disappointing earnings report
from Nintendo (which isn't the first
), people are beginning to ask the obvious question: when is the thing getting cheaper? For $200 gamers can now choose between a shiny new Xbox 360 or a Wii, and while crimson bundles
might help, a price cut would help more. That's not coming soon according to President and CEO Satoru Iwata, saying: "we cannot say [a Wii price cut] will never happen, but we are not thinking of it for the near future." So, when? Well, the last time he said it wasn't getting
a price cut that's exactly what it got five months later
. Maybe March, then?
