Nintendo Drops Price Of Wii Ahead Of Holiday Season

Inexpensive family fun this Christmas

Good news for those of you who don't have a Wii, Nintendo is dropping the suggested retail price to $129.99 in advance of the busy holiday shopping season. This new console bundle will be available across the US on October 28th.

Both Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort will come included on a single game disc, as well as a Wii Remote Plus and a Nunchuk controller; both in black to match the console. Bear in mind that the new Wii configuration doesn't support backwards compatibility for GameCube games.

Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing, Scott Moffit, said:

Nearly six years after it launched, people are still attracted to the pure, inclusive fun of the Wii console. A new suggested retail price and the inclusion of two great games make it an easy choice for families looking for a great value this holiday season.

Is this price drop enough to tempt you, or will you just save your dollars for Wii U?
