Nintendo to announce Wii price drop Friday – $199.99 from Sunday

WiiBox

Update: Nintendo have confirmed the price cut for the US.

Following in the footsteps of the HD consoles, Nintendo have decided it’s time for a Wii price cut, with the console receiving its first price cut 34 months after release. With a $50 reduction, this move is certain to see a resurgence in Wii sales for this holiday season, and presumably knock some of the momentum out of the PS3 Slim and Xbox 360’s sales.

The news comes from a leaked Best Buy memo. Friday’s announcement will hopefully provide details of if and how Nintendo will spread the price-cut love around the world.
