Report: Wii Budget Range Planned

May 3, 2011 -

According to an internal document cited by Eurogamer, Nintendo plans to create a budget range of Wii titles. Nintendo plans to introduce a line-up of lower-priced Wii software, which will consist of repackaged first-party titles according to the report. Some of the games that will be part of this range include Mario Super Sluggers, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. These and other titles will retail for $19.99 each.

The launch will supposedly coincide with a Wii system price drop. A new Mario Kart bundle priced at $149 (down from $199) will also be introduced.

The follow-up console to the Wii will be revealed next month during the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles. Nintendo has not confirmed that this story is true.

I believe that this would dispute the last sentence:

Not only that, there's an article on GameInformer.com with Shigeru Miyamoto confirming the release of Wii2 at E3.

Nobody's questioning the release of the Wii's successor. Nintendo confirmed that before the story ran in GI.

The writer is saying that Nintendo hasn't confirmed whether or not they're going to be releasing the $19.99 software or the Mario Kart Bundle.

Okay.  That makes a bit more sense, but with where that last sentence is put, it doesn't look like that's what they were trying to say.

Well, it seems Nintendo confirmed the story, so I guess the point is moot anyway. XD

Goth_SkunkDespite not being a fan of fighting games I had to check out that R Mika trailer. Loved it. Still won't buy the game though, on account of Isuckatstreetfighteritis.08/29/2015 - 2:42am
MechaCrashI use a Dynex DX-840 headset, but it's discontinued. :( I wanted a mono headset so I could keep the other ear free for my speakers, but it has the bonus of being very light and comfortable, so you don't notice it.08/29/2015 - 12:41am
