    not to sound cheap or anything, but does anyone know when the Wii's price will lower a bit?
    The PS3's price lowered, and im not sure about the 360, but im pretty sure they lowered its price too, so can anyone tell me?

    i doubt it will at all. its still ridiculously cheap for a next gen console. i'd say the only chance of it lowering is no one buying wiis .

    LOL

    the 360 lowered because it's been out for ages

    and the PS3 lowered because they're totally $@3%@T$ed!!!

    so just because they jumped off a bridge doesn't mean the wii has too aswell

    It's not going to drop anytime soon, like Jay said it won't until it needs to. When you can buy a Pro 360 for 300 and a 40gb PS3 for 350 then I think they would consider shaving like 25 bucks off, but until then they have no competition when it comes to value. The Wii is very cheap for how entertaining it is, and the only reason they would need to lower prices is if their sales slow down to a point where they begin to lose quite a bit of profit.

    it dropped 20 when the original was out.

    I was hoping for a drop on the DS Lite.

    The price will be cut when the demand for the Wii really starts to slow down or MS and Sony lower the price to $250 (maybe not then). Sony didn't choose to cut prices; the low demand forced it.

    it's gone down a few dollars here in aus. i'm sure you could find one $100 off original price - i've seen a few around. there's already second hand ones available.

    if i were you, i'd cough up the price [as it is cheap for a next gen console] and rest assured that no one else has been buggering around with it. if it's discounted this early, there's something wrong with it. wii is still in high demand.

    Yeah it used to be 289 here in Canada, but it went down to 260.

    I don't see a big one happening until maybe next holidays, who knows

    As long as the Wii is in demand, the price will not be lowered.
