GameStop CEO - Wii should have a price cut, key Nintendo property should hit by end of this year

“I think [demand for] the Wii could slow down to the extent that Nintendo may want to cut the price. Nintendo has it within its arsenal to do that. The component costs have come down considerably. They used to break even on the Wii, but now they’re making a considerable margin.” - GameStop CEO Don DeMatteo

Yeah, with Nintendo making money by the barrel, I don’t think they’ll cut the Wii price anytime soon. A little later on, Mr. DeMatteo speaks up on Nintendo’s holiday presence.

“We think there will be a Nintendo key property coming out by the end of the year. They haven’t given us any insight, but they have told us to reserve [shelf] space.”

There’s no mention of the title being for Wii or DS. I am guessing that the title is The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. What do you guys think?
