Hell no. Nintendo knows that people are snatching their Wii systems up as soon as they hit the shelves and plenty of people are still picking up the DS daily. There’s no reason to drop the price. According to Satoru Iwata, “Our earnings projection for the year is not based on hardware price cuts, and I don’t think we are going to need them.”

The Nintendo Wii and the DS were the two best selling video game systems in US according to data provided by the NPD group. With about 8.5 millions Nintendo DS’s sold, it was easily the top selling U.S. gaming system of 2007. The Nintendo Wii followed closely behind in second with about 6.3 millions consoles sold.
Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of sales & marketing, Cammie Dunaway stated “By the end of 2007 we were sold out of virtually all hardware, and much of our stock of software and accessories was sold out as well.” Now just imagine how much Nintendo would have sold had they have more Nintendo Wii’s in stock.

If you’re not doing anything for New Years, why don’t you play some games for the Virtual Console on the Wii tonight. First there’s Bubble Bobble, which everyone knows and loves, I think. This game is just a great classic that everyone can play. Then you’ve got Light Crusader…which I think kinda sucks. If you just gotta have another RPG, go ahead and pick it up though. Lastly, is Top Hunter. I’ve never played this, but it looks like it could be a lot of fun.
