Wii price cut imminent

Though Nintendo remains stoically quiet on the subject, the industry is preparing for the anticipated announcement of a Wii price cut very shortly – but question marks remains concerning the platform holder’s UK intentions.

Further evidence of a North American price cut emerged overnight with tech blog Engadget claiming to have word of a $50 price cut from Best Buy that is scheduled to come into effect this Friday.

However, with the Wii’s trade price having controversially risen just a few months ago in the UK, Nintendo’s ongoing silence on this side of the Atlantic has lead some to fear that the UK will be left out of this new round of discounting.

When contacted by MCV, Nintendo declined to comment.
