Nintendo 'to put a bigger focus' on downloadable content and digital distribution
The manufacturing cost of Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U console is estimated at around $180 per system, according to a report.
Speaking to Forget The Box, sources “closely involved with manufacturing and distributing Nintendo products” also said that the cost of components and materials for the controller is set around $50.
The costs of R&D, shipping, packaging and holding were not included as part of the estimates.
“Cutting production costs to maximise profits is Nintendo’s main concern with the Wii U,” said one of the sources.
“They are cutting costs in the Wii U’s hardware to build back confidence in investors. Nintendo wants investors to view Wii U as a less risky proposition.” http://www.develop-online.net/news/4...timated-at-180
