Wii price cut goes official, goes $150 from May 15

Nintendo is dropping the suggested retail price of its Wii™ system to $149.99 and including a Mario™ game with the Wii hardware. Starting May 15, the newly priced Wii system will come in either black or white with the Mario Kart™ Wii game and a matching colored Wii Wheel™ accessory, replacing the previously included Wii Sports™ and Wii Sports Resort™ games.

Also on May 15, Nintendo launches the new Nintendo® Selects collection of Wii games, a set of popular games that millions of people have already experienced, at a suggested retail price of $19.99. The four must-own games in this collection are The Legend of Zelda™: Twilight Princess, Animal Crossing™: City Folk, Mario™ Super Sluggers and Wii Sports, which is available for the first time as a separate software purchase. Parents and video game fans can now easily expand their library of fun, family-friendly Wii games.

The story is too old to be commented.

Nice, the Nintendo Selects are only $19.99 each.

Still not worth it in my opinion. I'll wait until they drop it to $99. Also, the game selection is quite lacking when they could have easily put Smash Bros. SMG1 and 2, etc. for games for $20. Pass.

didn't you want they to give you an extra $100 ?

I think that's a good deal from nintendo :D

I'm sure there are plenty of parents out there that might think twice on a console... I mean it's getting cheap now.

and at the rate of children coming into the world... I mean the Wii could just gain more numbers.

yeah $99 is a better buy. Im currently borrowing my cousin's Wii and Guitar Hero Areosmith is the only thing I really played of the few games she have.

i would spend that money for nintendos Project cafe...the rumors say it is backwards compatible to GC and Wii.
