Europe gets EUR 50 Wii price cut
But trade drop won't change £179.99 price for consumers in UK
The price of the Nintendo Wii has dropped to EUR 199 across Europe, leaving the UK the only region to not benefit from a price cut.
As reported earlier in the week, the Wii will still retail around the GBP 179 price in the UK when a new Wii Sports Resort and MotionPlus bundle is introduced in October, despite Nintendo lowering the trade price for the console.
GamesIndustry.biz understands that retailers such as Amazon, Play.com, GAME and HMV will continue to sell the new bundle for around GBP 179.99, the same as the current offering.
Yesterday Nintendo announced significant price cuts for the US and Japan, the first time in almost three years since the console was first introduced.
