Nintendo is dropping the price of their non-backwards compatible Wii units – with Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort included – to $130. That’s a $20 price drop. The bundle is due in stores by October 28th, and will likely be the final bundle for the hardware.
Most used units, if you price shop, can be had for around $50. Those would likely include Gamecube support as well. While the offer is sound, smart consumers can do better if they’re willing to take on someone’s hardware. The system has arguably seen one of the fastest drops in the used market of any current generation, and they’re available en masse.
