More details from Iwata on why there will not be a Wii price cut, and why Japan is losing interest in games

“The Wii is in the most unhealthy condition since it hit the Japanese market. The current condition in the Japanese market is not the one we want. 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. The speed with which people get tired of any new entertainment is faster in Japan than in overseas markets.” - Satoru Iwata

You can bet that Nintendo is banking big on Wii Sports Resort. If it sells anything like the first one, the game could keep the Wii rolling hard until next year…or even the year after.
