Nintendo...Lower the Wii to $99

Nintendo, the jigg is up. We all know that the WiiU is headed to retail this Holiday season and it's high time you lowered the price of the Nintendo Wii. The Nintendo Wii has its fair share of fantastic titles but it's time that you guys milked the system for the rest of its life and bring the price of the aging console to the magical price point of $99.99.

thats good, wii has a ton of great games, you wont want to miss out on zelda mario and metroid, i know i would not want to.

Sad to say I never played a zelda game in my entire life. Now is my chance.

Then again is wiiU is backward compatible?

yewles11841d ago

Wii U is compatible with Wii games (but with no upscaling) but not Gamecube games (you'll have to buy them digitally to play them on Wii U).

NastyLeftHook01841d ago

take my word for it, you need to play ocarina of time, its a masterful artistic beautiful games, full of enigmas and perfect pace.

@yewles1
Did they confirm Gamecube games will be available digitally on the Wii U?

fossilfern1840d ago

Man play Ocarina of Time and Majoras Mask.

Than someone should make a wireless gamecube controller for the Wii U :D

AWBrawler1840d ago

Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword feels like a "different" Zelda game and is one of my favorite titles of this generation.

Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 are amazing platformers and the Kirby titles are outstanding as well. Other notable Nintendo only titles include Smash Bros, Super Paper Mario, ExciteTruck and Excitebots, Metriod and Mario Kart.

3rd party wise Wii has Boom Blox, Boom Blox party, Okami, Zack & Wiki Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure, Trauma Center: New Blood, Elebits, Sin & Punishment: Star Successor (Nintendo), Muramasa: The Demon Blade, Sonic Colors,Red Steel 2, Monster Hunter Tri, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars, Dead Space Extraction, Donkey Kong Country Returns, House of the Dead and Madworld.

There are some more games on the Wii than just Mario, Zelda and Metriod.

They can't afford to lower the price right now. They have been losing money lately, and the Wii is a profitable system. Eventually all consoles hit that $99 sweet spot, but for now a new Black Wii, with Wii motion +, Wii Sports, and Wii Sports Resort at $150 isn't a bad deal. They'll probably sell a lot of them this Holiday season to people who hadn't been able to afford one yet, and people who had passed on the Wii for a few years.

lots of used ones out there. i got one last month for 50 bucks. Pristine condition. i could buy 3 for that price....just saying

DarkTower8051841d ago

So true, and the Wii is a reliable system so buying used isn't a crapshot. I sold mine a while back and I'm thinking of picking up another from craigslist on the cheap.

Once the WiiU comes out the Wii will hit the $99 price point.
