I've done a quick check and it seems that we at I4U have never had a story that featured convenience store/gas station powerhouse 7-11. Sure, they're great for Slurpees, but are usually not reliable when it comes to breaking tech news. Well, in an interesting twist, 7-11 is now making waves with its upcoming contest where you can win a free Nintendo Wii.
A quick look at the official rules and you'll notice this: "November 1, 2006 through January 31, 2007 the following Instant Prizes will be available to be won: (711) Nintendo Wii, ARV: $299.99 USD ($399.99 CDN) each"Of course, Nintendo has already said that the Wii will not break the $250 price level, with many people speculating a barebones console to sell at $199. Who knows where 7-11 got the ARV information? Though it would make sense that Nintendo is in on the contest, so it'd be surprising for them to have not given 7-11 an official price point.
Nintendo hasn't said anything about this yet, and they probably won't come forward at all since the pricing info is supposed to officially come forth later this month. This just goes to show how desparate we all are for Wii details. We turn to 7-11. Just think about that for a minute.
