Some analysts have sent out a warning that Nintendo need to slash the price of the Wii to $150. This is due to the fact that competition is going to severely increase with the imminent arrival of the likes of Project Natal and Arc.
<blockquote>We believe Nintendo needs to cut the price of their console from $200 to $150 immediately, as they should establish as meaningful of an installed base as possible before the Natal and Arc are introduced. We believe they also need to generate strong hardware sales momentum into their competitors release or face the draconian consumer perception of the Wii having a dramatically reduced entertainment value proposition over a faded technology innovation; Rock Band anyone?"</blockquote>
