Nintendo has announced that it’s to drop the price of its Wii console on both sides of the Atlantic.
And of course, these are recommend retails, so stockists should drop the price further and undercut each other – given that you can currently pick up the console at Amazon for £130 anyway (down from the RRP of £180).
It’s an obvious move for Nintendo to make ahead of E3 next month where the Wii sequel will be unveiled.
Furthermore, the company has announced a budget game range called Nintendo Selects. This will include Wii Sports, WarioWare: Smooth Moves, Mario Strikers Charged Football and Animal Crossing: Let’s Go to the City.
They’ll be priced at £20, not exactly a huge bargain, particularly not in the case of WarioWare and Mario Strikers which you can already get at that price, anyway. Indeed, you can pick up both of those for not much more than a fiver each second-hand.
