astra -> Iwata: Wii in an "unhealthy condition" (4/9/2009 8:52:49 AM)

Console going through a rough time, but no price cut planned

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has acknowledged Wii's flagging sales in Japan, but said that the company isn't planning an imminent price cut.

"The Wii is in the most unhealthy condition since it hit the Japanese market," Iwata said at a news conference. "The current condition in the Japanese market is not the one we want.

"The speed with which people get tired of any new entertainment is faster in Japan than in overseas markets," he added, before ruling out a price cut in the short term.

"A price cut in a difficult economy cannot really excite the market and drive up sales. As of now I really don't think that a price cut is a good option for us," he said, according to ABS-CBN.

Nintendo has also slapped a firm release date on Wii Sports Resort.
