What the imminent Wii price drop could mean to average gamers

Like the pre-release buzz surrounding PS3 Slim, the Wii is also generating a lot of rumors about an impending price cut and it looks like it's going to happen real soon.

Who the hell doesn't own a wii already ?

mikegotgame3252d ago

Well, there are 6.786 billion people in this world, minus 52.62 million Wiis sold. That's still a lot of people not owning Wiis.

A better question would be, who are all these people still buy Wiis each month? Before recent price drops the Wii still consistently outsold both the XBox 360 and PS3.

So the PS systems selling 100 mil was sold to beavers living underground?

Over the next year? Or is their jrpg lineup still hoping to make hits out of games by the likes of Marvelous that no one has ever heard of before it was announced they had a Wii game on the way?

SpoonyRedMage3252d ago

The Wii has Crystal Bearers coming this year... and Square Enix are putting DQX on the Wii... plus Namco are putting Tales of Graces on the Wii.

Also the Wii has The After Years as exclusive(for now anyway).

I dont get the wii at all, a majority of my friends own them (for there kids)and they still have wii sports and nothing else. I dont get it especially the hundreds of crap titles taking up all the shelves in the game stores. Fair play I guess to the kids and casuals who still play there wii`s and to future customers who will continue to buy the wii, but for me I just dont get wii
