When do you guys expect a price cut?

Price Cut will go down right before the next PS and Xbox release, there is no way Nintendo will keep the price within range of those two other systems, which is the reason the Wii sold extremely well.


While I do agree that they'll likely go with a price cut when the other consoles release, the price was far from the main reason the Wii sold extremely well early on.

When Microsoft and Sony release their new consoles.


That's the only legit answer, UNLESS the Wii U does really bad (which it doesn't seem to be doing right now, but we'll see later when it's been out for a few months).
The 3DS got a price cut because it underperformed quite a bit (though not as bad as the Vita, it still sold way below expectations), so it dropped when it made sense for it to drop. It might not make sense for the Wii U to drop as fast, or faster, but that remains to be seen.

So, if it doesn't undersell, the price drop will be not too long before the PS4/720 come out. Or maybe when their price tag is announced at the earliest so that Nintendo can better compete before they come out.

If a price cut was going to happen, I'd say it'd be along side the new consoles launching.

I expect one hopefully by Feb.

The Wii U is selling way worse than the 3DS did at launch, and that system got a price cut in 3 months.

Hopefully the Wii U gets one before Christmas.

I might buy one at 199.


3DS price cut was about 7 months into the system.


The 3DS launched March 27th 2011. The price was slashed August 12th 2011. That's just over 4 months.

$250 for a handheld was just too much. They had too. $300 for a home console is reasonable.

When people stop act like they are getting paid to Troll a message board for months ;p

I doubt you'll see a price cut, they'll probably just remodel a 300 dollar console with no game and a better hard drive, around summer.

Certainly not before the Deluxe Digital Promotion ends; there's no way they'll cut the base price on top of having that discount program still in place. After it ends, I still think there'll be at least a year to go.

around 1 year and maybe sooner if the PS4 and Xbox 720 come out next year and have a $399 price tag and have a ungodly amount of power over the Wii U.
