Nintendo Wii Price Cut Now Official

Nintendo have today acted to confirm widespread rumours with official
confirmation that it s Wii console will see a price cut of some $50 to
bring it under the $200 mark with the new lower price set to hit from
Sunday 27th September " so if you re poised to splash out for a
Nintendo Wii we d suggest holding back just a few days.
Apparently motivated by Nintendo s �mission to �expand the gaming
universe by making video games accessible to more and more consumers
(its got nothing to do with bringing the Wii s price point in line with
MS s entry-level Xbox 360 console then, apparently) the new, revised
sub-$200 Wii price point sits nicely with the up and coming release of
Nintendo s Wii Fit Plus as well as, of course, the holiday season " the
new lower price doubtless being an all too transparent bid by Nintendo
to see the Wii retain its No.1 status in the video games chart.

Wii has reached more video game players than any game system before
because it attracts everyone "both men and women, and people of all
ages, said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice
president of Sales Marketing. Our research shows there are 50 million
Americans thinking about becoming gamers, and this more affordable price
point and our vast array of new software mean many of them can now make
the leap and find experiences that appeal to them, whatever their tastes
or level of gaming experience.

Along with announcing the new lower Wii price point Nintendo s press
release helpfully also offers a heads up concerning the release schedule
of what it terms as �key titles which, by way of information, are
