Nintendo Announces Wii Price Cut

Mazel tov! Sorry, I saw “Wii” and “cut” and assumed I was writing about a bris. Anyway, Wired reports that on September 27, Nintendo will officially lower the price of the Wii from $250 to $200 in the United States. The company made the announcement on September 23 in anticipation of the Tokyo Game Show, which kicked off the following day.

Nintendo also revealed a November 15 release date for New Super Mario Bros. Wii. For me, news of an actual top-shelf title from Nintendo is far more exciting than the price drop, since most people who wanted a Wii not only own one already, but have likely become fascinated by how much dust they collect when not in use.
