Nintendo: Wii Sales Up 85% Since Price CutS

You may think that Wii sales are on the way down, down, down, but don't tell that to Nintendo! No, according to internal numbers, since the console dropped to $199 things have never better.

Nintendo of America's executive vice president of sales and marketing, Cammie Dunaway, says that since the Wii was knocked down from $249 to $199, sales are up 85% on a week-to-week basis.

Of course, since we only get monthly figures it's hard to pinpoint how sales were the week before the price cut, so this is just something we're going to have to take her word on.
