* Wii price cut

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
After price cuts by both rivals and the sagging economy, Big N's decided to cut the price of the Wii as well: they're also trying out a new strategy to get people to plunk down the increasing price of games.

The "New Super Mario Bros." for Wii will hit stores Nov. 15. It's the first title in the classic series that allows four users to play the game at the same time.

Customers can try this and other games at a "sampling tour" coming to three cities in October.

"Differentiating between thousands of [game] alternatives is nearly impossible," said Nintendo in a statement, adding that the ideal solution is allowing consumers to test drive the games before they plunk down cash for a game or system.
The consoles are aging, slowly but surely, and there are less game stores than ever. Time will tell whether this gambit pays off for Nintendo or not.
