We've seen the fray of retailers pointing to the elusive Wii price cut, and now we've got what could be the closest thing to a pre-announcement confirmation we can get. Nintendo will be slashing the Wii price to just US 199 come September 27th.
Nintendo shared this information during a retailer conference call where a Nintendojo staffer was present. Nintendojo now confirms that the Wii price cut is real.
As for the announcement, it's likely that we'll hear it from Nintendo at TGS.
Retailers pointing to the price cut:
- Everyone but Nintendo: Best Buy points to Wii price cut too
- Target ad shows Wii price cut?
- Toys R Us pointing to a Wii price cut?
