Nintendo officially announces $50 Wii price cut from Sept. 27 Nintendo has issued a press release confirming that the price of the Wii console will be cut $50 to $199 in the United States starting on September 27. Nintendo finally made cuts to the price of the Wii after Microsoft and Sony made changes to their offerings in the market.
Key upcoming releases for the Nintendo Wii console include Wii Fit Plus, launching on Oct. 4, and the first truly multiplayer Mario title, New Super Mario Bros. Wii. "Wii has reached more video game players than any game system before because it attracts everyone—both men and women, and people of all ages," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing.

"Our research shows there are 50 million Americans thinking about becoming gamers, and this more affordable price point and our vast array of new software mean many of them can now make the leap and find experiences that appeal to them, whatever their tastes or level of gaming experience."
