With a new console preparing to make its début with Project Cafe which, let's face it is aimed at the 'Core' gamer, Nintendo has begun to reposition the Wii in terms of price at least. MCV for one states a price cut of the base unit to £129.
The company states that on May 20th it will introduce an "entry level Mario Kart Wii
Pack... The new pack will contain a white Wii console, Wii Remote Plus, Nunchuk, Wii Wheel and a copy of Mario Kart Wii
We're also told that, "Nintendo has also announced that on 20th May 2011 it will be reducing the trade price of its existing Wii Sports Resort
Pack, which includes a black Wii console, Wii Remote Plus, Nunchuk and a copy of Wii Sports
and Wii Sports Resort
on one disc."
Also lined up is the 'Nintendo Selects range' of games. The company calls it a "value for money selection of popular Wii game titles for all the family."
Games in the list include: Wii Sports
, WarioWare: Smooth Moves
, Mario Strikers Charged Football
and Animal Crossing: Let?s Go To The City
Yes, that's a repositioning to make room for a sub £200 Project Cafe (Wii 2) before Xmas.
