How low will the price of the Wii go this Black Friday to fend off the Microsoft Kinect and Playstation Move attack.
So far Nintendo has not announced anything new for Nintendo Wii console in terms of hardware. For now the assumption is that Nintendo will fight against the motion control enhancements from Sony and Microsoft with the price. I can already see the slogan "Get a whole motion control game console for the price of Kinect". This is actually quite possible. Last Black Friday shopping season we saw offers for the Nintendo Wii for $150 (most of the times in combination of a gift card). The Kinect sensor sold with Kinect Adventures! sells for $149.99. The Playstation Move is a bit harder to beat as the starter bundle sells for $99.96.
The upgraded Wii Bundle with the MotionPlus accessory is currently selling for $199.99. The old Wii bundle is also still selling. It costs $179 on Walmart right now. I predict that we will see prices below $150 for the Wii Bundles during the Black Friday 2010 sales events. There is also a chance that the old Wii bundle will be used to achieve the killer price point of below $99. Walmart or another big retailer could land a big coupe with Nintendo on such a stunning deal.
Motion Gaming, now offered by all three console leaders, will be a huge topic this holiday shopping season and also for hot Black Friday 2010 deals.
