Amazon drops Wii price to 139 in UK

As Play.com pushes up the price of new official Wii Sports Resort hardware bundle

Online retailer Amazon has dropped the price of the Nintendo Wii to £139.99 in the UK.

The store is clearing stock as it introduces the new official Wii bundle for the region – a £179.99 package that ships with Wii MotionPlus, Wii Sports and its sequel Wii Sports Resort.

With the old £179.99 SKU selling out, some retailers in the UK are taking the opportunity to ask more for the latest official bundle from Nintendo - despite a drop in trade price, Play.com is selling the standard Wii Sports Resort bundle for £199.99.

While the price for Wii hardware has risen for UK consumers, Europe, North America and Japan all benefited from a price cut last month.

Savvy consumers can still take advantage of a competitive market, with some retailers such as GAME and HMV adding extra software to the Wii Sports Resort bundle and keeping the price at £179.99.
