Nintendo has more issues than price lol.  The Wii was a huge success in terms of moving systems, but with that success, came a lot more people who owned the system, to disappoint.

Just like RRoD left a bad taste in people's mouths and made them lean towards switching when the current gen consoles were coming out, the Wii's lack of 3rd party games left a bad taste with Wii owners, and made them leery to get the next system.  If there is nothing to play, it doesn't matter how cheap it is.

You can think that price isn't a factor, but the average consumer doesn't know or care about the slight differences in power of the systems.  That's something that they may hear about after the fact and make them feel even better (or worse) about their purchase.  Just go into a Best Buy and listen to people's conversations.  Hell, just listen to the staff explaining things to see how clueless most people actually are. 

They can read a price tag though.
