Nintendo Wii price plummets below £100
RRP cut, retailers slash it further
The price of the Nintendo Wii plunged today, with some retailers pushing the price of a bundle under the £100 mark.
With Nintendo's next console sure to hit shelves in 2012, the price-cut was inevitable. It was reported earlier this month that from 20 May, new bundles would be available and £50 would be slashed from the current Wii Sports Resort pack, lowering it to £129.
It appears the time has come for Nintendo's "legacy console" to take a bow, so focus can fully switch to the Wii 2. An official announcement on that, though, is expected at next week's E3. ®
At under a hundred quid
it's definitely worth it. It's now less than a tank of petrol!
The games are good fun, the controllers can be bluetoothed to your PC (with a bit of faffing about, anyway), and- again- it's relatively cheap. Plus it's got a web browser and WiFi so if you don't want to fire up your PC to, say, check your email you can do it right on your TV.

You can have mine for £95. It's not been switched on for 6 months.
Just about low enough...
... to persuade me to replace the PS1 I currently have in the caravan for the kids.
That might be enough to tempt me
Can't see Kinect lasting 5 years...
Both gimmicks, but at least the Wii had some impressive games that utilised the control method.
Waving your arms around will get boring (and tiring) very quickly.
