Retail prices Wii Mini at £80

Publish date:

The first online listings for Nintendo's Wii Mini peg the hardware at around 80.

That's consistent with what MCV has heard about the machine's cost price, and also leaves a little room for manoeuvre should retail decide to get competitive. and GAME both have the console listed at 79.99, while ShopTo is offering it for 84.85.

The price represents an unwelcome but unsurprising mark-up on the $99 Canadian price, which translates directly to under 65.

It's also not a significant drop from the sort of prices doing the rounds for entry-level normal Wii SKUs. The comparison looks even less favourable when the price of pre-owned hardware is taken into account.
