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.
