RUMOR: Wii U Price Drop Next Month

Wii U Price Drop

Wii U Price Drop


Holding out to buy a Nintendo Wii U? You might be running out of excuses — based on certain financial reports, a Wii U price drop may be coming as soon as next month.

Based on a 2014 interview with Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, Nintendo will not drop the price of the Wii U until the next financial year. Quoted from a Q&A:

“Regarding Wii U, it is not easy to make a significant profit with the current units sold. The price reduction of the hardware in the overseas markets represents a large amount of our total expenditure for this fiscal year, but based on the premise that we will not make such a reduction in the next fiscal year, I think our business can operate without such a negative effect on our profitability.”

It should be noted that the next financial year begins next month, in March 2015.

So what do you think? Is a Wii U price drop in the works? Let us know in the comments.
