Cammie Dunaway comments on Nintendo's healthy console sales.
In an interview with The San Francisco Chronicle, Nintendo Sales and Marketing VP Cammie Dunaway says that Wii sales have risen 85% on a week-to-week basis thanks to the recent price cut.
Enacted in late September, the Wii saw a 50 dollar price cut, lowering its price point to 200 dollars. It came after Wii sales grew relatively stagnant throughout 2009, with September being the first time in three years that the Wii was not the top-selling console - thanks to Sony's own PlayStation 3 price cut.
However, sales increased in October, again making the Wii the top-selling console that month.
