Nintendo Finally Drops Wii Price To $199.99
For nearly three full years, the Wii has sold (like crazy) for $249.99. Most stores couldn't even keep them in stock at that point, so up until now, Nintendo really hasn't seen a need to lower the barrier to entry. But when you consider that a Blu-ray supporting PS3 is now just $50 more than a non-HD Wii system, it's obvious that the time had come for Nintendo to swing its own axe. Starting on September 27th, consumers will be able to snag a Wii for its new price, so in other words, today's the day if you've intentionally holding off for nearly 36 months.
