This is the greatest major announcement, possibly ever. During Sony's press conference at the Tokyo Game Show, Nintendo announced that they will be dropping the price on the the Wii to $199.99.
Beginning Sunday, Sept. 27, the world's most popular home video game system gets even more appealing. On that day, Nintendo's suggested retail price for its record-setting Wii drops by $50 to $199.99. The new $199.99 Wii price point delivers the full iconic Wii gaming experience, including the motion-sensing Wii Remote controller, Nunchuk controller and Wii Sports software, and furthers Nintendo's mission to expand the gaming universe by making video games accessible to more and more consumers.
Of course, we all knew this was inevitable when Sony and Microsoft both dropped the prices on their consoles.
