Nintendo Wii to Rule the Holiday Video Game Sales again when $150 Bundle Deal
 
Buy Wii from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

Nintendo got critized not to put up anything really new on the table to compete with the new Xbox 360 Kinect and Sony Playstation Move motion gaming systems. The only thing that is new is that the Wiimote has now Wii Motion Plus built-in. This is a great improvement, do not get me wrong.

The biggest weapon of Nintendo is though the price. Today Amazon started to sell the new Wii consoles with a $50 Video Game Credit. Essentially the cost of the Wii hardware bundle is down to $150. If you buy the red Wii you even get a great bonus game with Mario Bros. The Amazon $50 credit deal is not unique. ToysRUs will offer a $50 gift card tonight when the ToysRUs stores open at 10pm for the Black Friday Sale. Walmart has also the same $50 Gift Card offer on Black Friday.

The Kinect Sensor bar, if you find it in stock, costs as much as the Wii console in this deal. The Move Starter Kit is cheaper at $100, but you still need a $300 PS3 to play.

If retailers have enough stock allocated, the Nintendo Wii could see the biggest sales weekend in its history this Black Friday weekend. The Wii could once again take Christmas. Buy your new Wii now on Amazon.

Update:
I was right. Nintendo just announced that they have sold 600,000 Wii consoles in the Black Friday Week.

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.
