Nintendo's best-selling Wii console may be dropping its price by the end of September, according to rumors. Video game Web site Kotaku published a blurry snapshot of a Toys R Us flier advertising a $50 cut in the console's price -- down to $200 from $250. Given that Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3 both underwent reductions in price, the move could be read as a reactionary step, and a way to stay competitive in an increasingly neck-and-neck console sales race.
The bundle contains Wii Sports--the most popular Wii title (no big surprise; the current console comes packaged with it anyway). That means the supposed price reduction isn't just a barebones release of the Wii sans game.
But is the price cut necessary?
