Wii Speak Phased Out by Nintendo …Maybe

Wii Speak Phased Out by Nintendo …Maybe

Just about a half a month ago, we reported the fact that Nintendo was asking developers of the game Conduit 2 to not utilize Wii Speak in their game.

We could say that Angry Birds is popular, but that would be an understatement. The game, which has made its way from iOS to webOS and Android, is a mobile title that lets you sling-shot birds from a set location, and take down structures where pigs reside, all in hopes of collecting points while you take out the pigs. The game's popularity has been insane, and it looks like Rovio, the developer behind the game, is getting ready to expand the horizons of some angry birds.

Nintendo Wii Won’t See Price Cut in Near Future, Focusing on Bundles

Even if Nintendo isn't seeing the profits they'd like to, and Wii sales slumping, it looks like the company isn't planning on making any drastic changes to the working model they've got in place now. They still believe that the $200 price point for the console, which already has plenty of extras in the box, is the right way to go. Instead, they believe that offering up console bundles is the way to go forward.
