Nintendo had to lower the price of the Wii U just to stay competitive.

They are getting slaughtered as far as other devices are concerned, but the 3DS is doing ok; not selling DS numbers but still decent. I don't know how well this new 2DS is going to sell. Let's all hope Nintendo can manage to survive and continue to make software on lagging hardware and great - mediocre gimmicks for another decade.

Why the hell else would they do a price drop? For charity? What a waste of a thread.

Sorry that I'm late, you do realize that every new Gen a console's have a slow start. Have you seen the PS3 or Xbox 360 sales for the first year where on Wii U levels? It takes about a year for a console to get into it's stride. Whether it be a push of new titles or a price drop, consoles take time to become what they are at the end if there life.....

Except PS2 and Wii they kicked ***

The 3DS is the fastest selling handheld in history. And why would Nintendo drop the price when they're already the cheapest option?

All signs point toward the PS4 being the next console in that trend. Not that I have a particular vendetta against Microsoft or anything after their console reveal, but between the X1 and how the Wii U is going, the industry needs the PS4 to be the big hit.

Remember when Sony dropped the price of the PS3 by $100 eight months after it launched? Do you remember tc? Do you remember how Sony said there would be no PS3 price drop?

Sony Computer Entertainment America bossman Jack Tretton has gone on record to clearly state that there will be no price-drop for PS3 until at least June 2008.

In an interview with Game Informer magazine, when asked if price drops for the PS3 would be "as soon or as drastic as they were for the PlayStation 2," Tretton answered with a clear, "No."

Then they dropped the PS3 price $100 in July 2007 - http://vgsales.wikia.com/wiki/Price_cuts

Do you remember tc?"
