John Koeller, SCEA Marketing Director, states that the drop in PS2 price will impact Wii sales. "We do look at those as similar consumers. So, yes, we do think the $99 price point could steal some share [from Wii]. From a technological standpoint, the Wii is much closer to the PS2 than it is to the next-gen consoles."
