New Price Point for Wii

We have all noticed the Wii slipping in sales over the years and the whole motion control gimick has been surpassed by Xbox’s Kinect as well as Playstations Move. To combat this Nintendo announce a price drop. This will be the consoles second price drop since its release in 2006. The first drop was from 249.99 to 199.99. Now the Wii will retail for 149.99. To add incentive to the offer the Wii will come with Mario Kart and the racing wheel accessory. Also Nintendo will release some 20 dollar games such as The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Animal Crossing: City Folk, Mario Super Sluggers and Wii Sports.

Now this is all good and fine but rumor around the industry is that Nintendo will unveil a new console at E3 only a month a way. Will consumers really want to go out and buy a cheaper Wii or wait and see what Nintendo has to offer next? I am not sure many will care to buy a system that will be out done in a month.

    This design is incredible! You obviously know how to
    keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.

    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

    the WII out done in a month? wasn’t it out done before it was even released? I mean it was sporting last gen tech with a controller that had limited motion capabilities to detect when you where “waggling” it around not including the add-on hardware to make it work better ugh….

    it was an intresting idea excuted poorly even though it made them an ocean liner full of cash!

    I am intrested in seeing the next system they’ll be sporting mabe full 3d support with true motion interactivity? hhmmmm

    I for one won’t be getting a Wii. I’ve really experienced all it had to offer, which wasn’t terrible, but fairly quick. I’m praying that this new console will allow me to enjoy my games from my comfy spot on the couch.
