Nintendo Wii Cut to $199 in Two Weeks - Nintendo Wii - Gizmodo
Could it be true?
about damn time...
oh wait i forgot. nintendo forsaken the fanbase that made them for sheep.
never mind... eh i could always use a back system.
Now if they could only start putting out more games that'll peak my damn interests.
Right now they only Wii games I'm looking forward to are Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M.
...damn it. I've got an AdSense check due just after that and two craigslist sales working right now, I'm going to be kissing it goodbye fast.
seems like that's how it always is for nintendo. at least the past few systems-n64,cube,and wii. don't get me wrong,i'm a lifelong nintendo guy but it's like mario,metroid,zelda,and then nothing. with the occasional mario kart or smash bros thrown in for good measure. how about a new star fox or kid icarus?
Never liked the Wii. I lost faith in Nintendo after the 64. I like smooth awesome graphics that the Wii cant provide from what I have seen of it.
third party support is picking up so the console doesnt have to rely on nintendo alone anymore.
muramasa's keeping me plenty busy. then we have fragile, silent hill (which will probably suck. most likely suck. it will suck. lets ignore I put it on the list). a boy and his blob. final fantasy crystal chronicles: the crystal bearers, dead space extraction, resident evil darkside chronicles, red steel 2, spyborgs, tatsunoko vs. capcom...
and this is just third party stuff that'll be out by january. the drought is over.
Muramasa. smooth. awesome. the wii does just fine whenever realistic-style graphics arent being used.
Down to $199 ?
It's only about £180 to £195 here lol
Graphics > gameplay?
i still laugh everytime i see people complain about graphics...yet they go and buy PSN/Live/VC games.
don't forget no more heroes 2. those new job minigames look awesome.
Wow. Took one post to bitch about the Wii. : / That's a new record.
I'm thinking about picking up a black one, once they ship.
I'm not bitching about the system itself, I'm bitching about it's game library.
Way too many third party throw-away games and not enough honest-to-god good games.
The Wii itself if a nifty little system. Compact, easy to use, has an internet browser, etc.
But I bought it to play games.
I know i shuold feel ashamed... but yet i dont
though there are still many games on my list that i need to get.
im tired of black but the black Wii looks sexy...since i only got two controller atm, when the black ones come out, i'll get two more.
It figures it would drop after I bought mine. Oh well you never can see those things coming.
Awesome news. I wonder what kind of price drop we'll see in Canada. I'd suspect it'll be 199 here too, since the PS3 slim sells for 299 in the US and in Canada.
My wife has been wanting a Wii for a while now and this price drop is just what the doctor ordered.
Now I'm even more tempted to get it so I can play the FF IV sequel.
This is something I don't understand though. It's not your job to enlighten me or me to win you over or anything ******ed like that. haha
There's a large amount of great Wii games. I own more Wii games than 360. And WAY more than PS3 (although I don't own a PS3 anymore). But let us not turn this into List Wars: The Return!
Each system has ups and downs and the Wii definitely has more shovelware though.
it was only a matter of time before they dropped it since both Sony and MS figured out price drops for their systems as well.
