Wii sales dropped 50% over last 5 months
“Until the late August PS3 price cut, the Xbox 360 appealed to consumers, likely due to a higher perceived value proposition (the Xbox 360 ‘core’ model was priced $100 lower than the PS3). With the core PS3 and Xbox 360 models priced only $50 higher than the Wii, we expect year-over-year sales of Wii hardware to continue their annual declines until the company either changes its bundle or lowers price. Wii unit sales are 50% below last year’s level over the last five months, and we think that September sales will repeat the pattern.” – Wedbush Morgan analyst, Michael Pachter
The numbers were pretty close this past month, could Wii fall all the way to 3rd in sales this month with a full month with the other consuls at their price cut?
