Leaked Toys R Us Ad Shows Wii Priced at $199
« on: September 15, 2009, 10:08:54 AM »
Further indication that a Wii price drop is coming at some point around the end of the month.



Following a leaked Wal-Mart ad that indicated the Wii would be receiving a "price rollback" at the start of October, new evidence has now popped up from another retailer to further support an impending $50 price drop for Nintendo's massively popular console.

This time, the ad comes from Toys R Us, which prominently displays a "Wii Price Cut!" and a new price of $199 (via Kotaku). The ad is apparently set to be distributed the last week of September, indicating the price drop could be effective before the end of the month (the Wal-Mart ad suggested it wouldn't occur until the first week of October).

Nintendo, believe it or not, has yet to confirm or deny the price cut advertised in these leaked circulars, but the mounting evidence seems to be making it pretty clear: come October, the Wii will more than likely once again be $100 cheaper than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. So if you're thinking of picking one up, probably best to wait a little bit longer to see what happens.
