CrunchArcade: No Wii, DS price cut, says Nintendo


Those of you without a Wii or DS, don’t expect a price cut on either any time soon. Nintendo, which doubled its operating profit this past fiscal year, says it has no plans to lower the price of either system any time soon. And why would they? If people keep buying them at the current price—the Wii is still hard to find—what sense does it make to lower the price? Unlike Sony, which had to lower the PS3’s price merely to prop up demand, Nintendo can just sit back and watch y’all snap up system after system.
