Is Nintendo Dropping the Wii Price For The Holidays?

Is Nintendo Dropping the Wii Price For The Holidays?
 
Buy Wii from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

Now that the dust has settled after the Sony PS3 and Xbox 360 price cuts, all eyes are on Nintendo. Will Nintendo see the need to adjust the pricing of the Wii console?
If you look at what you get, the balance is pretty much off between the PS3 Slim and the Wii console. The price difference of $50 gets you HD, Blu-ray player, 3D online community, movie streaming and CELL CPU power.

The Wii's game play will remain unique until sometime in 2010 when Microsoft will release Natal and Sony releases their motion controller.
That alone might be the reason that Nintendo will keep the Wii price at $249 for this Holiday season and just try to push sales with new games and a black Wii console.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
