Nintendo to whack Wii price by 28%
'Wii 2' groundwork begins
In two weeks' time, the console will cost £50 less than it does now.
You can't buy a Wii on its own, only in a bundle pack with Wii Sports Resort. Currently, it costs £179. On 20 May, it will cost £129.
Nintendo will introduce a second bundle, based on Mario Kart Wii, on the same date. It'll contain the white Wii - the Wii Sports Resort pack will include the black version.
A range of cut-price copies of older titles - Wii Sports, WarioWare: Smooth Moves, Mario Strikers Charged Football and Animal Crossing: Let’s Go to the City - will be released on the same day. ®
The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.
if you need a wii, just knock on your neighbours door - they'll probably have one, barely used, gathering dust under the TV.
How low might they go?
At this rate, by the time the Wii2 is on sale you'll be able to pick up a Wii1 for a few tens of pounds. Given that my Wii1 "still works, but only if stood vertically" and is /sounding/ on its last legs, that might be just what I need. (Shockingly, I don't give a toss about the lame graphics as long as the game is fun, and vice versa. But then, I'm not a serious gamer. In fact, I'm probably one of the appalling great unwashed who made the Wii a best seller in spite of its low spec. Sorry folks.)
not as a bundle it weren't...
...well not mariokart that i saw :)
