    Of course they don't need to

    Nintendo haven't dropped the price

    Sainsburys did, otherwise EVERYONE will be selling them for £150, and sainsburys will have limited stock, so when it's finished the price will return

    If the price does not drop the bundle quality wil increase, they are still good value for money but if I had neither a 360 or a Wii I would choose the 360 (maybe not if I had kids) so I guess the sales are not going to slow particularly much.

    I feel a price drop should be on the cards even if they do not agree.
    Having a Wii at a similar price point to the DS would probably not do their market share as many favours as a clear difference but who knows if this is part of their thought process.
    As finlay666 noted, people will still pay.

    If you read my post properly you'll see I didn't say Nintendo had cut the price. Maybe it could have been worded better but I cleary said Sainsbury's had dropped it.
    A sign of things to come though I reckon & if they can do it then I bet other retailers can/will do a similar thing.
