Despite Sony and Microsoft announcing price cuts on PS3 and 360, Nintendo is not planning on bowing to pressure, nor is it expecting to be clobbered in the market.
Instead, according to NOA’s Denise Kaigler, the company’s sales forecast “remains unchanged”.
“Our focus has always been on creating fun and engaging game-play experiences,” said Kaigler. “Because of that focus, Wii has been the best-selling video game system in the United States for two years and counting.
“It offers the most fun and the best value for consumers. Wii can be played by every member of the family the moment it comes out of the box. It’s the only console that offers the option of precision motion controls right now, with the Wii MotionPlus accessory. And Nintendo systems are the only place you can play new and classic Nintendo franchises.
“Wii games that will be on people’s lists through the holidays include Wii Sports Resort, Metroid Prime: Trilogy, Wii Fit Plus and New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
“Nintendo offers something for everyone.”
Good to know, Denise.
