In advance of the Wii U's November 18 launch, Nintendo is cutting the price of the current Wii console to $129.99. The console, which will be black, will be sold in a bundle with Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort (on one disc, interestingly enough), a Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk. The bundle will start trickling to stores now and be widely available by October 28.
The Wii had been selling for $150.
The Wii U, which is backwards compatible with the Wii, will go on sale in November in two configurations that will cost $300 or $350, the latter bundled with a game and packing more on-board memory.
