Buy Wii Console from Amazon Prime Day, Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now

Nintendo sent out a press-release making the rumored Wii price-cut official. Beginning Sunday September 27th you can go and buy the Wii console for the new low price of $199.99.
With this price-cut Nintendo is back to matching the price of the cheapest Xbox 360 console. This price-cut should be enough to keep the number one spot in the video game sales charts this holiday season. In the UK there is a rumor of new Wii Bundles that would include the MotionPlus accessory. I could imagine that Nintendo is bringing such bundles world-wide to drive even more sales.

With the press-release Nintendo highlights also some of the upcoming key software releases for the Wii. See the list below.
