Black Wii sparks price war

Whilst we're used to aggressive price battles in the software market, hardware prices are typically resilient – which makes the current price war surrounding the upcoming Black Wii all the more surprising.

A number of leading online retailers – such as Amazon, Play, ShopTo and GAME – are offering the upcoming new SKU for £164.99 on pre-order. This represents a £15 saving on the RRP.

However, Nintendo has told MCV that it has not further cut the machine's RRP beyond the trade cuts announced last month.

The story is too old to be commented.
