Nintendo finding efficiencies

Looks like Nintendo has managed to cut out 45% of the cost of making a Wii since launching the console.  When the little white box was released it was already the cheapest to make and had the lowest sticker price.  A price which they have not yet lowered by the way.  So basically Nintendo has managed to increase their takeaway on each box sold by nearly half since launch.  Now, when the Wii does start slowing down and Nintendo drops the price they'll be in a great position because they'll still be making a lot of coin on each console.
