Nintendo drops Wii price to $199

September 25, 2009

Nearly 3 years after it was released, the Nintendo Wii is finally getting a price cut. On September 27th, you will be able to buy the Wii for just $199. This makes the Wii the cheapest video game console on the market again, at the same price as the cheapest Xbox 360 model. This price drop is most likely the result of a number of factors: the recent price drops of the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3; the upcoming release of Sony’s motion controller in the spring; and most importantly, the massive drop in Wii sales throughout this year.
