Wii Price Drop
« on: May 04, 2011, 11:31:14 AM »

It's official: Nintendo is dropping the price on the Nintendo Wii to $149.99, as insinuated by price drop rumors floating around Nintendo's console the last few weeks. The price drop will be in effect as of May 15th, and will include a Nintendo Wii in black or white along with Mario Kart Wii and a matching colored wheel, replacing the Wii Sports/Wii Sports Resort pack-ins. For those dying to pick up a black wheel, it can be purchased separately for $9.99.

Beyond the Wii cost reduction, Nintendo also formally announced its "Nintendo Selects" program, which will offer popular Wii titles at the $19.99 price point. The four titles initially part of the Nintendo Selects family include The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Animal Crossing: City Folk, Mario Super Sluggers and, for the first time ever as a separate software purchase, Wii Sports. There was no mention of Super Smash Bros Brawl made officially by Nintendo.

It sounds like a great deal for someone that's been waiting all these years to pick up a Wii, with deals galore for classic titles that the legions of Wii owners have enjoyed for years. But with Nintendo's new console 'Project Cafe' coming next year, the timing seems a bit off to really drive any serious momentum for the flagging console.

They would probably sell more with the price drop if they hadn't just announced a new console.   Nintendo ... #)

I think they've done pretty well with the Wii.   :)
