Now Wii gets a US price cut

Yet another mainstream console has had its price cut in the US.

Hot on the heels of a (possibly retail led) cut to a couple of Xbox 360 bundles, word has now arrived of a Wii price cut in the territory.

A new bundle including a black console, black Wii Remote Plus and black Nunchuk and copies of Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort (on a single disc) is now available for $129.99.

It replaces the current $149.99 New Super Mario Bros Wii SKU.

"Nearly six years after it launched, people are still attracted to the pure, inclusive fun of the Wii console," NoA's executive vice president of sales and marketing Scott Moffitt said, as reported by Polygon.

"A new suggested retail price and the inclusion of two great games make it an easy choice for families looking for a great value this holiday season."

The SKU is already available in some outlets but is not expected to roll out nationally until October 28th. This, of course, comes ahead of the American Wii U launch on November 18th.

Wii U launches in the UK on November 30th.

We’re still waiting for news of any potential price cuts to the Xbox 360 and Wii in the UK. Last week saw the new 12GB PS3 cut to under £160 by some retailers.
