What with the PS3 and Xbox 360 getting price cuts ahead of the coming Holiday season, one would have expected a reduction from Nintendo as well. However, that will not be the case, as senior marketing VP George Harrison told Reuters that the $249 price point will remain for some time.
“We’ll stay at $249 for the foreseeable future. We are still selling everything we can make,” Harrison told Reuters. “We think we’re in a great position. Both our competitors took price reductions and it hasn’t stalled our momentum at all.”
