    I wonder how this will work out. I'm doubting the DSi price cut but the Wii cut could happen. Makes it easier for me to get one and take it with me to the dorms next year lol.

    If a dsi price cut came in then a lot of dsi owners will rage. [​IMG] The ds phat and ds lite never got a price cut did they? Well officially.

    Well the Wii price cut might happen due to the fact that the PS3 Slim has just been released for only $299, only 50 dollars more than the Wii and a whole lot more memory. Also, Microsoft just had a huge price cut on their elite system dropping that as well to $299 again just a little bit more money but definitely alot more bang for the buck. As the PS3 and Xbox have more FPS titles than the wii and more exclusive titles, the price drop for the Wii would grab the attention of a lot of would be buyers.

    I'm sure they'll announce a Wii one and a DSi one would be nice, but it probably won't happen.

    i guess it's pressure on the wii in terms of the moving gaming market... dsi will not change unless psp does but i dont think it will cut out too much
    didnt the dsl cut from 150 to 120$?

    Yeah, the Wii is around 250 euros here now, I can see them going to 200 euros in the holidays.

    The Wii price cut might happen, the DSi price cut won't happen for 2 years at least. If it does, I'm sueing Ninty.

    In Europe the DS Phat costed only 120 euros after the DS Lite released for 150 euros. I think that was a official price cut, correct me if I'm wrong.

    The Wii price cut might happen. Although Nintendo certainly still sells enough Wii's, I think they can drop a dollar or 50 to make sure people keep buying the Wii instead of the PS3 or 360. I don't think the PS3 is real competition for the Wii, but the Xbox 360 is because of the price. Think about all the parents that will be buying a console this christmas!

    I don't think a DSi price cut will happen, and if it happens it will be dropped to 150 euros. But the DS Lite still sells well, so I don't see Nintendo doing that. I think the DSi will get a lower price in a few years when Nintendo announces a new handheld.

    Yeah... I was going to by a DSI with Soul Silver when it comes out but when I saw the price tag I changed my mind instantly.

    What ever happened to handhelds being CHEAP?

    I can see that nintendo might cut the price of the wii. However, I would also like to see a price cut in the DSi. Maybe then I could purchase that pink DSi I have had my eyes on. I am hopeful this rumor is true.

    what they should do is cut the prices on the wii remotes and nunchucks and sell the AS A PACK.
    I hope they drop the price on the wii though and release new colors. I dont really care if they drop the price for the dsi because i already have one so meh.

    Seriously, if they slash the price is "all men overboard" for me. Maybe.

    Why the hell is a Wii price cut even necessary lets look at the competition, sure you can get a 360 for the same price lacking a hard drive and headset not to mention having to pay for XBox Live. And the PS3 is an extra 100 so when you look at what you get with Wii 250 is a fairly reasonable price.

    But another way you can look at it is their lowering the price of the Wii to bring in a Wii HD upgrade
