Earlier this month, we brought you word that Nintendo, the gaming company that has brought us countless hits over the past few years, hitting a high with their previous console, the Nintendo Wii, is not doing too well with the recent Nintendo Wii U release, and hence, the Japanese company could very well announce a price cut for the Wii U at the recently concluded E3. Touted to be a next generation video game console, it does not live up to such a reputation if you were to judge it based on its hardware performance alone. Sure, some of the innovations introduced include the Wiipad that brings gaming to a different level, but not necessarily the next one. Having said that, companies tend to introduce price cuts when it comes to stimulating sales figures of their hardware, but it seems that Nintendo is not going to take that route this time around with the Wii U.
E3 2013 came and went, and there was no price cut announced at all, bummer. Nintendo marketing executive Scott Moffit did mention that Nintendo has “no plans to change the price of Wii U,” and it remains to be seen whether the Wii U’s sales figures would increase when their Mario, Zelda and Super Smash Bros. franchises are rolled out in the months ahead. Why do you think that the Nintendo Wii U has been performing rather dismally in sales so far?
