Nintendo to whack Wii price by 28%

'Wii 2' groundwork begins

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

We know Nintendo's next console will be out in 2012, and now we know the videogames pioneer is pruning the price of the Wii to keep the machine selling in the meantime.

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. ®
