No Wii price cut for UK gamers Rumors have been flying for weeks that Nintendo is set to drop the price of the Wii gaming console to $199 USD next week, but it appears UK gamers will not get the same luxury. is reporting that instead of a price cut, the UK will see new retail bundles that include the Wii MotionPlus accessories and two games.

The console retails for GBP 199 but the new bundle will add Wii Sports, Wii Sports Resort, and the MotionPlus peripheral.

A few retailers have already listed the bundle, and it is expected to go on sale within two weeks.

Nintendo called the bundle talk "rumour and speculation".
