Everyone seems upset with Sony about the PS3, but it's still selling enough to maintain critical mass, and it's a very good deal. Dropping price for them is difficult.
Why is it no one gets on Nintendo for selling a piece of crap for $250? Clearly, they are no longer supply constrained, and their sales are dipping appreciably. On top of this, they sell the Wii at a very large profit, and can easily drop the price down to $199 and still make a lot of money. My feeling is, they'll have to soon, with the sales starting to decay. I often think they should never have increased supply too much; staying in perpetual short supply was almost a guarantee to maintain very strong demand as everyone wants what they can't have, or can't easily have. Now that the Wii is easy to get, it's lost a bit of that attraction.

There's far better choices for the ds and you know it
To put some numbers on to the Nintendo share price story - From 1985 to end 2004 the stock increased ~ 300% (Fro reference, the S&P 500 increased ~600%)
However, if you had bought them at the beginning of 05, they increased by ~ 500% to October 2007 (their high)... having now fallen ~65% since then.
You would still however have doubled your money had you held onto them from 05 till present (up just over 100%)
ummm who else noticed one flaw in this article ... that being that teh DS IS NOT A CONSOLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! god damn i get pissed at reading stupid by lines , the DS is a hand held gaming device to say it "rules in console sales" is A: wrong because it is not aconsole. B: stupid because it is not a console and C: misinformation becuase .... (drumroll) it's not a freaking console
this is like apples and oragnes you might as well throw cell phones and PC's into the figures since you can play games on them too ! , eh this is just terrible writing . again it's nota consoel so there for it CAN'T rule in console sales ... it can beat sales of consoles , but it is NOT the top selling console because it is not a console, period!
