Retailers Drop Wii Down to $169


Retailers recently rearranged the price on Nintendo’s Wii console bundle. Their now selling the Wii white or Black bundled with a Wii MotionPlus Remote (wit Wii nunchuk) , Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort for $169 a bundle that previously sold for $200.

The drop in price came after Engadget cited sources who claimed the Wii would be getting dropped down to $150 by May 15th. Retailers like Wal-Mart, GameStop, Best Buy and others who dropped the price may have done so in anticipation of an official price drop being announced by Nintendo. They would want to sell off those old units so they could buy more at the discounted price when Nintendo makes it official.

Not to mention all the business this would drum up for selling those used consoles, which all know is any game retailers biggest source of income.
