Includes a free copy of Mario Cart and Wii Wheel accessory
Nintendo has formally slashed the price of its Wii game console and also added a free copy of Mario Cart game along with Wii Wheel accessory. As per the official statement,
the new bundle with a white or black colored Wii console along with Mario
Cart Wii game and Wii Wheel accessory would be available for $150 (Rs.
6,750 approx.) from May 15 onwards, as opposed to the previous price of
$200. This bundle will also include Wii Remote Plus controller and
Nunchuk controller. Alternatively, if you want to buy black
colored Wii Wheel, you will have to pay $10 separately.
This price drop comes two weeks after the company confirmed that the next-generation Wii will be shown at the E3 2011 game convention. Consumers get a choice of Wii console bundle (including Remote Plus and Nunchuk controllers) along with Wii Wheel in full black or white colors. Mario Cart game comes free with that. There's no confirmation on whether the new price would be effective in India from May 15 onwards but you can surely wait till the end of this month to find it out.
With this sweet price drop making the Wii bundle more affordable and fun, Nintendo is making way for the Wii successor that would be shown at E3 Expo in June. However, the Wii successor would be available for purchase on next year.
