Nintendo plans staying the same despite hardware price cuts

Commenting on Sony and Microsoft's price cuts on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Denise Kaigler, Vice President of Corporate Affairs for Nintendo of America, released a statement saying that Nintendo is not planning on lowering their prices, nor do they expect to be overtaken in the market.

Kaigler continued to say that the company's sales forecast "remains unchanged".

"Our focus has always been on creating fun and engaging game-play experiences," said Kaigler. "Because of that focus, Wii has been the best-selling video game system in the United States for two years and counting."

"It offers the most fun and the best value for consumers. Wii can be played by every member of the family the moment it comes out of the box. It's the only console that offers the option of precision motion controls right now, with the Wii MotionPlus accessory. And Nintendo systems are the only place you can play new and classic Nintendo franchises."

"Wii games that will be on people's lists through the holidays include Wii Sports Resort, Metroid Prime: Trilogy, Wii Fit Plus and New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Nintendo offers something for everyone."

Both Sony and Microsoft recently lowered the cost of their current hardware bringing the new PlayStation 3 Slim to $299.99 and the Xbox 360 too as follows:

· Xbox 360 Elite - $299.99 (was $399.99)
· Xbox 360 Pro - $249.99 while supplies last (was $299.99)
· Xbox 360 Arcade - $199.99 (same as old price)
