Nintendo Wii price slashed

US and UK gamers can nab console for £100

Is the Wii 2 getting a step closer with latest price cut?

The Nintendo Wii has been given a hefty price cut by US retailers, with the console now up for grabs for just $170 (£104) at Best Buy, Target, Amazon and GameStop. The move comes ahead of an official price cut, rumoured for next month.

While those deals are impressive, UK gamers can nab the black version of the console from Amazon for £98.98, with Wii Sports, Wii Sports Resort and one controller. It seems stores are trying to clear stock, with the Wii 2 rumoured to be making an appearance at this year’s E3.

The updated version of the console is expected to cram in HD smarts, while the controller will pack a HD screen for playing games when the TV’s off.
