Wii gets no price drop


The battle royale that involves all three consoles (Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii) is looming with the upcoming holiday season, and to date both Sony and Microsoft's offerings have already experienced the almighty price cut in an effort to boost sales.

    it’s called virtual console. I have 15 games downloaded that I play constantly. I don’t need to run out and buy a physical game. The people who love nintendo love it because they can remain tied to the past. But when something new does come out that is “worthy” enough to buy they have that option as well. I seriously doubt with the incredible sells figures Nintendo has their console has “ended up” anywhere bad.
