Nintendo Officially Announces Wii Price Cut


image Nintendo confirmed what tons of leaked retail fliers told us, the Wii will be priced at $199.99 beginning this Sunday.  The now $50 cheaper Wii still comes bundled with Wii Sports, one remote, and a nunchuck.


“Wii has reached more video game players than any game system before because it attracts everyone—both men and women, and people of all ages,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Our research shows there are 50 million Americans thinking about becoming gamers, and this more affordable price point and our vast array of new software mean many of them can now make the leap and find experiences that appeal to them, whatever their tastes or level of gaming experience.”


Anyone without a Wii thinking of buying one now?
