I'm not so sure of this. Nintendo is in the business of selling
software and their consoles are just the drivers to it. So with iPods
and PSPs. And most of these items are pushed to drive sales of a
bigger item (a Wii, a MacBook, or a PS3) so there is some sort of
selling strategy involved. Selling individual XOs in retail could be a
driver though, to make up for the disappointing G1G1 2008 sales, but
its pretty damn hard to compete on sheer geekery alone.
