Big Box Retailers Discount Wii to 170

first_imgVirtually every major retailer has just discounted the price of the Wii console, lending more credence to rumors of an impending official cut to $150.Best Buy, GameStop, Walmart, Target, and others, along with online stores like Amazon, have all discounted the price of the system. Last week, reports surfaced that Nintendo was planning to slash the official MSRP to $150, ahead of a rumored Wii 2 announcement at E3 in June.It seems this move is for retailers to get as much money as possible from existing inventory before they have to lower their pricing to the new impulse-buy price point. So even though $170 is certainly a good deal, it might be wise to wait until next month, since this all but confirms those pending price drop rumors.Via Cnetlast_img
