Nintendo Wii Price Drop And Budget Games

Nintendo Wii Select Games

There was a time about five years ago that you couldn’t find a Wii console on the shelves of stores and they were selling online for more than double their retail price. Now however with just about every household in the world having one they are pretty easy to come by. Because the technology is dated and not selling as well Nintendo has dropped the price of the Wii from $199 to $149. In addition to that they are bundling in the Mario Kart Wii game.

Also, Nintendo just recently introduced the Nintendo Select line of games. Although it’s currently a small list, the games are great titles that are budgeted at only $20. The list includes:

  • Animal Crossing: City Folk
  • Mario Super Sluggers
  • Zelda Twilight Princess
  • Super Smash Bros: Brawl

Keep in mind that Nintendo has recently announced the launch of a new console expected to debut later this year and go on sale next year. The Wii may be near the end of it’s life cycle.
