Sony dropped the price of their PS3 to $299, Microsoft hacked and slashed their Elite system to $299, but is Nintendo following suit?

According to an anonymous tip sent to gaming blog Kotaku, that’s exactly what the Japanese game maker is planning.

A blurry ad scan from Toys ‘R Us shows the full Wii system, Wii Sports and all, selling for the new low rate of $199 starting September 27 when the new price is said to go in effect.


The answers to our questions will likely be answered in the coming weeks, what with the Tokyo Game Show and Kyoto Cross Media Experience 2009 going down by month’s end.

Welcome to the price-cut stage of this next-generation. Hope you’re enjoying the savings!
