Nintendo to lower price of Wii console by $50 beginning Sunday



Mom_marioSunday's the day when Nintendo drops the price of of the Wii, its popular wireless gaming system. You can get it beginning today for $199 -- which still may be a little pricey in today's economic reality. But if it's the big Christmas gift -- and you can find one -- then it might be a nice splurge. Since they are dropping the price tomorrow on the traditional sale day, you may want to check out the big box stores like Target and Wal-Mart to see if they have them in stock. All of this is in anticipation of the Nov. 15 release of a new game, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, which will be the first Mario Bros. game for four players. The best part is it's rated E for everyone. That's a game even I could get into.
