NoA’s Reggie Fils-Aime reckons the recently-announced Wii price cut and the imminent launch of Wii Fit Plus will have a seven-figure impact to the machine’s sales.
“There are literally millions of consumers out there who want a Wii and had been on the sidelines,” he said, talking to the FT.
“They’d been waiting for that little nudge to go out and pick it up – the price decline, the sampling, the launching of key software like Wii Fit Plus – we believe it’s what’s pushing them over the edge to get into the category.”
And what sort of sales increase have we seen from the cut, Reggie?
“The consumer response has been very strong to the price reduction,” he said, adding that it was too early to release precise sales figures.
We’ll know soon enough.

Nintendo has announced that Wii Fit Plus will be released in Europe on October 30.
It adds 15 new balance games and six new strength-training and yoga bit, and also allows you to customize your routines, should you feel like mixing things up a bit or targeting specific areas of your body.
There’s also a calorimeter tracking your progress and comes with the Wii balance board.

Looks great. Here’s a thing, though. Get a bike, leave the house and ride it somewhere. Who knows? You may see something inspiring and unrelated to the inside of your house, thus reinvigorating your ever-dwindling lust for life.
It’s out on October 4.

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has said he sees three titles being released this year – Wii Sports Resort, New Super Mario Bros Wii and Wii Fit Plus – to sell over ten million units.
“I believe each of these three software titles have the potential to surpass 10 million copies worldwide in the whole fiscal year,” said the exec, speaking in an investor Q&A released by Nintendo yesterday.
He added: “We recognise this Q1 result is not the strongest and closer to the lower parameters of our expectations, but we expect we can reverse the situation through the full-fiscal year and therefore did not revise out forecast.”
Mario Galaxy 2 to sell a billion units at launch? Bet on it.
