Could Nintendo be planning to withhold holiday Wii Remote supply to create demand for this costly bundle?
It's true, we've totally seen the soulless side of Nintendo when they smell blood and think they can make some cash. My instinct says that if they get the chance to corral consumers into buying three products instead of one, they will.
around here wii-motes are sold for $49.99 so here its a deal (Wisconsin)
lol I still haven't seen wii's on most shelves...
have huge stacks of them and every Gamestop has a ton of them. Wiis are not hard to find at all now.
That's true, here at the local gamestop they have a HUGE sign announcing that they are stocked up the arse with Wii's. Though I can't say the same for the target, best buy, toys r us and circuit city. I wonder if GameStop pulled a deal with Nintendo since they seem to be the only ones that have a butt load of wiis in stock in my area.
I went to GameStop yesterday and I thought it was hilarious that each time the employees answered the phone, they were adding that they had Wiis in stock until I overheard the manager telling them they didn't have ANY in that day. =/
But it's only one box! Saves packaging materials! Nintendo hearts the environment! What's that, you say? Greenpeace says Nintendo is the least environmentally friendly of all the console manufacturers? Oh.
God, exactly what I was thinking.
I hope this terms out to be something aimed at the convenience of people who would want all three items in one go as opposed to pushing customers into buying it. That would be just...slimy.
Nintendo . . . this company has let success and wealth go to their heads more than ANY company I have ever seen.
did you see Sony's launch price? they expected to win this gen off their brand name alone... Nintendo set out to win through innovation... Ninty ARE the gaming industry and always have been
Nintendo putting a motion sensor on the Gamecube could hardly be labeled innovation. Motion sensors have been around for a long long time.
but none have worked so well... case and point six axis
Nintendo's best games are mostly played without the motion controls... case and point Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
Ok, I admit that I will get flamed for it, but Im the most un-happy person with my numb-chucks, because these crap its garbage with lack of response and lagging. If you have it than you know what Im talking about.
Yah, I know what you're talking about. It's almost like Nintendo misadvertised their product because the only motion-controls is waggle,wiggle, shake, thrust. No 1:1 movement whatsoever -which is what the whole world thought at first. I was sorely disappointed with Twilight Princess, but still liked it.
Unless the console knew exactly how big your tv is.
That's why they added Motion Plus to the Wii. It rocks too!!
what games do you own where the nunchuck lags??
got a disagree yet no example of games that lag with the nunchuck........classic ha. whatever makes you sleep at night.
yeah i wonder, what made his nunchuck lag.
I blame it on the internet. Or science.
or the government
wii is cra\y in the sellin department - bloody hell. i found my nintenod wii to be boring man this is crazy numbers, there prety much hittin a million a month
but im guessing they are doing alot of long term damage with the wii.
Wow this is just ridiculous spin. Whatever though
Where is the incentive Nintendo? I mean offer me a deal and make me want to buy this! If I purchase al these items separately I save a whole 2 cents! That means this bundle is technically overpriced. At least we had an incentive for buying wii play.... I bought it because I needed another wii-mote and when it came out it was only 10 more dollars than a wiimote by itself. Meaning that I got the game for 10 bucks. Looking back on it, that game was only worth about 10 bucks, but in the early days of me getting my wii it was definately an incentive when I needed another controller and wanted to build up my game collection!
Awesome article, nice to see fresh news!
This is just a guess but could it be that they anticipated more broken controllers than actually occurred and so are left with a surplus to sell?
Geez man, that's REALLY giving Nintendo the benefit of the doubt. So basically the headlines according to you should be "Nintendo's Superior Engineering Process Saves Them and Consumers Millions!"
I dont own a wii, therefore I dont care
Then why did you click on the article.
Blink you just said what every hater needs to think before posting. "Opinion is the medium between knowledge and ignorance"
They should sell it for $54.99.
