Wii Price Drop

The Nintendo Wii is the only current gen console not to receive a price drop yet and after the latest price drops from Sony and Microsoft the Wii has been looking decidedly pricey.

So it comes as no surprise to see a bunch of rumours proclaiming a Wii price drop in coming weeks and these rumours have now all but been confirmed with a leaked Toys R Us pamphlet doing the rounds.

According to Toys R Us the Wii will be receiving a $50 price drop on the 27th of September which unsurprisingly is around the same time as the Tokyo Game Show.

I would be very surprised if this price drop isn’t a global thing so we can expect the price in SA to drop down to R2640 ($353) and in Australia to drop to AUD$295 ($253).

Maybe when we are big we can also pay the same amount for our games as the Americans?
