Nintendo: DSi Sales Numbers High, No DS/Wii Price Cut

In a presentation in Tokyo today, Nintendo discussed not only Wii Sports Resort, but Wii price cuts and Western DSi sales numbers as well.

Given by Nintendo president Satoru Iwata and senior director Shigeru Miyamoto at the Foreign Correspondent's Club of Japan, the presentation covered more than there Wii Sports Resort release dates and reaffirmed what we have heard before.

There will be no price cuts for the Wii or the DS — even if Wii sales are sliding in Japan. However, the DSi launch has been successful overseas with 300,000 units selling in both the US and Europe during its first two days on sale. Nintendo said to expect more DSi services to "enrich" the users lives such as museum maps, tour guides, shopping mall coupon recorder as well as increased interactivity in school classrooms.

Despite the strong DSi sales and the impeding threats from Apple's iPhone, Nintendo has no plans to move into the cell phone market.
