Cut Price Wii?

Rumours abound that Nintendo are cutting the price of their Wii, but no mention of Oz

Nintendo has apparently stated that they are about to cut the price of the Nintindo Wii to US$199 Stateside, which some think is a result of the latest PS3 unit and Xbox 360 coming down in price.

While the chances of this happening is very high, it does beg the question will Australia get the benefit of the price drop, too? Not necessarily, as we have found out with some of the Sony gear that appears a bit more expensive – even taking into account exchange rates etc.
Nintendo has yet to confirm of course, so this is definitely cast in the rumour category, but I doubt we’ll have to wait long to find out.
