The Wii is now $169.99 USD at most U.S. retailers (Best Buy, Target, Amazon, GameStop) as of this week. Budget minded Wii owners will also be happy to know that two Nintendo games, Wii Party and Wii Sports Resort, have also had their prices slashed a cool ten bucks. Both are $39.99 USD, Nintendo of America has announced. Oh, the savings!
What's silly is that Nintendo could have reduced the price on 3DS as well. Wii, 169.99. 3DS 249.99. Nintendo already makes money on 3DS. If it reduced the 3DS price, it will sell better. I don't think I want to buy Wii at any price point at this point.
