With the holiday shopping season right around the corner, you can expect plenty of juicy deals and promotions in a bid to secure your gift-giving (or self-splurging) dollars. But if you're hoping to score a scintillating deal on the Nintendo Wii, well, prepare to be disappointed.
According to Yahoo News, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said he only plans on offering limited deals with retailers this year, focusing mostly on special package bundles that add games or other accessories rather than temporary price cuts.
"Of course, we cannot say it will never happen, but we are not thinking of it for the near future," Iwata said when pinged about a possible price cut.
Price cut or not, Iwata reckons his company will sell 17.5 million Wii consoles in the fiscal year ending March 2011, and 23.5 million handheld DS consoles, including the upcoming 3DS.
