Nintendo Wii

Showing that it has a great sense of humor, Nintendo confirmed a price drop for the Nintendo Wii in the middle of Sony's Tokyo Game Show 2009 press conference. The press release went out while most game writers were paying attention to Sony's announcements in Japan. The company said:

"Beginning Sunday, Sept. 27, the world’s most popular home video game system gets even more appealing. On that day, Nintendo’s suggested retail price for its record-setting Wii drops by $50 to $199.99. The new $199.99 Wii price point delivers the full iconic Wii gaming experience, including the motion-sensing Wii Remote controller, Nunchuk controller and Wii Sports software, and furthers Nintendo’s mission to expand the gaming universe by making video games accessible to more and more consumers."

While this move was expected after a few weeks of rumors and leaks, the timing was amusing. It's nice to see major game companies engaging in frat-like tactics.
