A TRANSLATION of a Nintendo report lets it be known that Nintendo intends to allow retailers to set their own prices for the Gamecube, beginning October 27th.
The console that has been described as "nearing the end of its life" is currently selling at 14,000 yen or £69. This loosening of restrictions from Nintendo will allow retailers to sell at whatever price they deem necessary to shift the console.
The move may however not be as desperate as it first seems. Sony has already instigated a not entirely dissimilar policy concerning its PS2, though this began in May of 2005. This policy is thought responsible for keeping sales of the PS2 high throughout the year.
Gamasutra here has more details, along with another translated item noting that 82% of customers buying a "Touch! Generations" game on the Nintendo DS have subsequently bought a second title. More than half of those buying a second game have bought another T!G game, the most famous of which is Nintendogs. µ
