Wii Price Cut Next Month Means Nintendo Has 'Something Much Bigger' for E3

Last night the folks at Engadget reported that a "trusted source" has indicated that Wii will drop to $150 on May 15. The timing (before E3 in June) seems odd, but if it's actually true Nintendo could be readying a new console announcement for E3.

There are very few announcements that would eclipse a hardware price cut," EEDAR analyst Jesse Divnich told IndustryGamers.

I think its time for a Wii 2 that supports at least 720p due to the fact that, at least in the west, they don't manufacture sub-HD tv:s anymore :P

truehunter2775d ago

EDTV never lasted to begin with, just like 720p TV. Basicly we went from 480i/p an jump too 1080p TV.
720p has been use sence early 90s if u had PC back then. pc monitor in those days are ether sub-hd or full 720p. off couse we are living in 2011 most pc monitor are 1080 up too 1600 or higher.

i think someone is assuming to much but always a possibility

Please no, please don't force us into the next gen with a wii 2 anouncement.

donniebaseball2775d ago

It's more like Nintendo finally entering the current gen with a new system. Wii has last gen specs.

truehunter2775d ago

the wii is like PS2.5, sence Wii spec is nearly 90% better then PS2. unlike PS360 witch jump by 10x from last gen.

Price cuts are coming to all the consoles this year, doesn't mean new consoles are being released right now. Probably not for another couple of years.
