Wii and Nintendo Hold Strong


The global recession does not bother Nintendo, they are so confident in their products that there will be no price drop for the Wii, DS or DSi. Nintendo has sold more than 50 million Wii consoles worldwide in less than three years, and more than 100 million Nintendo DS and DSi portable handheld game machines worldwide. Nintendo claims they own the market, as there is no similar gaming devices that do what theirs do. The Wii wand controller and the touchpad play of the DS and DSi are competing against no other devices. Nintendo Wii and DSi have easier-to-play games that have attracted newcomers to gaming, including older people. The Wii sells for $250 in the U.S., and the price has never been lowered since the debut. When you compare that to the Microsoft Xbox 360 and the Sony PlayStation consoles, which both have been slashed to attract more buyers the Wii is alone in that regard and standing pat. Sony has just slashed the price of the PlayStation 2, from $129, to $99. The bottom line is in this year of bad economic news reported everyday Nintendo is set to have a better financial year than both Toyota and Sony.

I said okay That’s all right
Time moves on That’s the way
We live and hope to see the next day
