Iwata: Nintendo Has No Plans To Drop Wii U Price
Posted on Thursday, January 31 @ 08:35:51 PST by Alex_Osborn
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has made it clear that we won't be seeing a price cut on the Wii U any time soon. So those hoping for another 3DS situation in which we see a significant price slash less than a year after release will be disappointed.
In the notes for the company's Third Quarter Financial Results, Iwata says bluntly:
With Wii U, we have taken a rather resolute stance in pricing it below its manufacturing cost, so we are not planning to perform a markdown. I would like to make this point absolutely clear.What do you think? Is the Wii U worth the current $300+ price of entry? Will the next wave of new consoles force Nintendo's hand?
