From Wii.qj.net, this site announced this staatement:







A bit of good new and bad news. Europe's not getting left out of the Wii price cuts Nintendo announced for North America and Japan. The bad news is it doesn't include the UK. Don't blame Nintendo, though.

GamesIndustry reports that the Wii will still carry a GB£ 179 (US$ 285) price tag in the UK even though Nintendo already lowered the console's price for retailers. Play.com, GAME, HMV, and other retailers will still stick to the old price point.

Things are different for the rest of Europe, however, where the Wii has dropped to € 199 (about US$ 290) at retail.
