Analyst - come holiday season, some potential Wii purchasers may substitute in 360
“I’d guess that there will be some substitution of Xbox 360 Arcade for Wii as gifts. More important, I think, is the low price itself; I think that Wii owners may consider buying a ‘next gen’ console and look hard at the Xbox 360 at the $199 price point, and don’t think Sony is particularly competitive at $399 for the cost-conscious crowd.” - Wedbush Morgan (super) analyst - Michael Pachter
I could definitely see that happening, too. There are plenty of people that have no idea what the Wii is, and when they see that it isn’t available, they will just opt for a quick fix with the 360.
