Speaking to Reuters, Nintendo senior marketing VP George Harrison said that the Wii's price isn't budging. "We'll stay at $249 for the foreseeable future. We are still selling everything we can make," he said.
That's some confidence, which in fact is quite well founded. Nintendo Wii inventory has and continues to sell out immediately as it hits the shelf, and likely the demand will not meet supply this holiday season. Well, let the console games begin!
