IDC Believes Wii U Will Get $50 Price Cut Later This Year, But Won’t Make Dent On Competition

International Data Corporation has given Gamesindustry.biz a sample of its soon to be published latest console forecast report. The IDC believe that the Wii U will get a price cut of $50 in late 2014 or early 2015. However it doesn’t think it will make a serious dent in the installed base gap between Wii U and the competition. The IDC expects the PlayStation 4 to lead all consoles with 51 million sold by 2016, but they think Microsoft will make a serious comeback, particularly in North America, where it’s forecasted to take the lead if they unbundle the Kinect peripheral

“Meanwhile, Nintendo’s Wii U is expected to finally receive “the equivalent of a $50 price cut worldwide in late 2014 or early 2015,” but it won’t make a serious dent in the installed base gap between Wii U and the competition.”

      2. They are actually lucky that The Amazing Spider Dude 2 did so well… if it flopped that would have been a serious strike on their bank.

      3. Between movie offerings like Amazing Spiderman 2, and their musical offerings, such as the new Michael Jackson CD (RIP), Playstation can rest on it’s laurels. But Sony has to continue developing new methods of quick cash flow. Even still, they make good offerings; The same MJ CD is actually quite nice, I’m wearing Sony Headphones right now, and I have a Playstation 2, with a desire to get a Playstation 3, for it’s games, at some point or another.

      4. Mario moves consoles unlike any other single franchise in video games. Obviously variety and originality would be great, but sales figures are sales figures.

      6. It will make more people buy the console and then its hoped that will attract more games due to the bigger user base and so on and so on.

      7. They don’t.
        Anyone with sense knows that it takes a consistent run of great games to keep a console selling high, not counting hype via advertisement.
        Thankfully, the system will be getting that great line-up for the rest of the year and beyond.

      8. Same why Microsoft is desperately depending on Halo to save them… oh no wait… Nintendo doesn’t really rely on their games like Mario to sell because they’ll turn around anyway but Xbone will be dead seeing how Halo is the only game people want the Xbone for and that’s a small number

        Like

      9. And knowing that the Halo fanbase is slowly dwindling plus Xbox One being met with a more negative reception thanks to its own dumbass PRs promoting DRM that pissed and scared the fuck out of everyone away towards Wii U/PS4 except the 4 million retards who bought the damn DRV box, I’m not sure Halo 5 is enough to save the already fucked Xbox One platform especially if the game ends up not running at 60FPS or 1080p for that matter. Then the fans will really have something to be pissed off about.

    1. Unfortunately they are only making a digital presence at E3. Which isn’t a big deal in actuality, but it sends the message that Nintendo aren’t serious about gaming and that they don’t have much of a plan. Again, it doesn’t actually mean that, but it sends that kind of message. The biggest name in games SHOULD attend the biggest event in games.

        So, yeah, your “Friends” must be stupid and the reason for the downfall of the gaming industry seeing how its more likely that they play Halo, Call of Duty and Battlefield which are pretty much the same thing. Hell, the new call of duty is basically Elysium the game.. now THAT’S what I call “Running out of ideas”

        Super Mario 3D World on the other hand is the complete opposite, more open environments, having to save fairies instead of the princess for a change, being able to play with up to 4 people with the added bonus of the Gamepad user being used to find hidden items, new abilities that ENHANCE the gameplay and so on.

        Nintendo doesn’t rehash like your companies do, they innovate and I’d like to say hi to all the people on Youtube that also hate your video but you record this anyway… by using a handheld camera and NOT an on screen capture… You must be broke if that’s the case XD

        Do you not know how to speak? That is a direct quote, you call people idiots for wanting a $50 price cut on a console that they don’t feel is priced right. If the console drops price then it drops price, hence its cheaper.

        Well not shit you are going to buy more games but without the price drop you are out $50. Would you rather buy a Wii U and a game for $360 plus tax (300 wiiu plus 60 dollar game), or a Wii u and a game for $310 plus tax? (250 wiiu with a 60 dollar game)

      3. If you buy so much as ONE brand new Wii U game, $60 is added to the price. If you had $60 extra dollars, why complain? People ain’t complaining about PS4’s price. It costs almost twice as much as Wii U yet it’s selling like hotcakes. A price drop is obviously not needed. It’s the games. And the games are coming. If you care about $50 savings that much, you shouldn’t be buying video games in the first place.

      4. Exactly. PS4 has no games, 400 bucks. Xbox One has some games, but none really worth buying, 500 bucks plus that stupid kinect.

  9. Wow! Remember that guy that made the predictions about how the Wii u was going to fail? I didn’t think he was right.. But yeah I guess that’s why its his job to be an analyst. Pachter I believe it was.. sounded like an asshole but damn, he’s actually good at his job. The Wii u really has failed. And I’m not here to hate, I bought the Wii u in day 1, and I’ve never had a console that wasn’t Nintendo, I had just hoped Wii u would be successful but it really hasn’t. And I’m not blinded by.. Whatever it is that makes fans so committed to one thing… So yeah just sharing the truth I guess.

      That’s DRM still lingering and thank god I’m not one of those 4 million fucking idiot tools ignoring Microsoft’s open BS. $550 for a DRV Box that lied about DRM and acts like an I.E.D trying to struggle with 1080p and fail…give me a fucking break.

  20. Why does the analyst claim a price drop is happening but won’t help the Wii U this year?

    First of all, I don’t see the Wii U pricing dropping this year and considering the software line up coming, I don’t think its required and even if the drop happens, I’m sure it’ll entice more people to buy it when MK8, Smash Bros. 4, Zelda Hyrule Warriors and such are available for the 2014 holiday season.

    So this “prediction” has Patcher’s name all over this and let me remind you people again: He’s nothing but a fucking idiot who can’t keep his big mouth shut without doing homework and keeping his fanboy dick in his pants. Remember his preditions about Wii/DS/3DS failing? ALL NEVER HAPPENED! Wii U can likely turn itself around if Nintendo can stop playing shy guy and advertise that fucking console.

    Also xbox one production as been stopped momentary cause the console does not sell very well.,Furthermore MS lied on the number units they sold. they send 5 millions units worldwide (19 countries) to retailers it’s does not means they sell 5 millions. The console is not even out in Asia……

  23. Since patcher and co are so good analyst here mine. The Wii U will hit the 90 millions units sold (not shipped) worldwide by the end of March 2015. Cause humanity will have a brain and release they have been ***ed by Sony and MS for so many years and 3rd part developer/publisher who sell them 1/3 of the game which is worth of 1h30 content and sell them 2/3 of the game which accumulate a total of $100 per game.

    Xbox one will reduce their price ($100) to be in line with PS4 around October after the launch of the xbox one in Asia (unfortunately they are so desperate that even one 1 unit sold in Asia is a good thing). Finally after a price drop in the console and price drop on the game but an increase of price for DLC, as well as make sure 3rd part don’t develop for xbox360. Furthermore MS will create a magic patch which remove the DRM but keep the spy thing on but will be more difficult to detect.Because MS will tell us the spy thing does not exist anymore( which is of course a lie) MS will managed to hit 5.0165 millions units sold worldwide.

    Sony will hit 11.32 million units after they released the SUPA DUPA remix HD version of Final Fantasy 7 (just make sure some we are all on the same page I pick the number which comes to my head without any data to back it up but hey I think they do the same thing).

    Nintendo will focus their online experience in 2015 and put the miiverse right, as well as unveil the successor of the 3DS which will have a benefit effect on the market share. QOL which will be launch after E3 2015 will have a shaky start but will bring 215 billion yen revenue for 2016.

    PS: the above is sarcasm and a lot of BS…
