Wii Price Cut Made Official

Just like the Sony and Microsoft before it, Nintendo had a hell of a time keeping its Wii price cut plans a secret. As has been widely rumored by way of leaked retail circulars for a few weeks now, Nintendo will indeed be dropping the price on the Wii by $50. The new $200 price point goes into effect this Sunday, September 27, and that price will get you the same box contents as always: a Wii Console, Wii Remote and Nunchuk, and a copy of Wii Sports. Including a MotionPlus would’ve been a nice gesture, but hey, I’m certainly not going to argue when the package is $50 cheaper.
