I just noticed that the original SKU Wii seems to now be $149.99 @ Best Buy online:

http://www.bestbuy.c...203165702&h=387

You won't see the price until it's in the cart, but it's there.

Granted it wouldn't come w/ the Wii Motion+ & Wii Sports Resort, but for those that don't care or don't care that it isn't the newer black model, this is a pretty good deal on a brand new Wii.

Those of you shuffling around BB gift cards/credit may want to jump on this.

Interesting. Have Wiis ever been this cheap?

I wasn't expecting to see sub $200 until after E3.

Still too much! Not till it's $50 will I get it. Decent deal though.

Just picked one up, make it hotter with 10% Bing cashback (search for microwave). $150 out the door for a new Wii! But I will wait until after E3 to see how I feel about it, I bet there's a new model coming later this year...

That's a great price.

Pair this with a Nyko Action Pak on clearance at your local Kmart for $19.99, add a couple of Nunchucks, and your good to go.

Of course as CheeseKnight28 said, if you can wait until after E3 we might see an official price drop--let's hope post E3 cheapness includes Wii Motion Plus.

Nice price...Wii may have gotten alot of backlash in the last couple of years but when you got some friends or family over, nothing can top the Wii.

It's fun to troll, but it's had some solid software as of late, I bought mine for Tri and got more than a few games along the way, haven't regretted it. Probably sunk the most time into it this year outside of the PC.

To the trolling dude above though, change your avatar, you cannot troll anything with a Heavy Rain avatar. You can't critique a diner while eating a handful of feces.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Seems like they're clearing out all the old stock that is without Wii Resort/Motion Plus. Motion plus is only $20 retail and I doubt anyone would lose sleep over the loss of Resort so it's a pretty solid deal.

And 10% BCB huh? Pretty much makes it tax-free...

Amazon still offers the black wii, motion plus and wii sport resort included, and a $30 gift card. Free shipping and no tax for some.

Yeah, I'm gonna wait until after E3 myself to decide what to do about the DS situation as well. I wanna know what kinda capabilities the 3DS will have as well as of course software lineup...which is most important. That combined w/ the Zelda Wii...& this E3 for Nintendo could be pretty damn awesome.

Got jungle fever? Once you go black you don't go back...

I must admit that I'm gonna wait to have enough credit or money saved up to get a Black Wii. I had a launch Wii & a PS3, but sold them because I was playing more PC games.

However w/ all of these awesome Wii game deals lately...and more kick ass first party Nintendo titles, I need to get another Wii.

I don't let other people touch my systems let alone even step in my room.

Still it's gotten much better exclusives than PS3 over the last 4 years, that platform might as well be dead. I'm just not interested in movies pretending to be video games & selling far more than ACTUAL GAMES like Yakuza & Demons' Souls, makes me sick.

Got jungle fever? Once you go black you don't go back..

Electronics look better when their black or gray. Following Apple & making them white was a disgusting move. Then again, they still need to get rid of the glossy crap as well & go back to matte but I guess making them black is good enough.

Hey just wandering ...... What are the chances that a new Wii will be announced within 2-3 years ?

Fairly high. I wouldn't expect it this E3 - 3DS is probably their big thing - but probably the next E3.

I would recommend getting a Wii anyway, especially since Mario Galaxy 2 just came out and it's FANTASTIC. I think I own more Wii games than 360 or PS3, not because I don't like the others, but because the Wii has more variety. You can't play games like Little King's Story or Trauma Center on 360/PS3.

I agree...the Wii has tons of shovelware needless to say...however there are quite a few gems here & there. A lot of them can be had pretty cheap on Amazon.

I agree...even the packaging for the black Wii is so damn sexy! :drool:

Keep on trolling, trolly.


I said it was a decent deal for others, just not a deal for me personally. Plus I was being humorous about it, not trying to say Wii is bad in general. Calm yourself.

You think Wii is a diner and Heavy Rain is feces... that's just plain fanboyism.

nobody cares what your price point is.

Whoa calm down there.

I don't let other people touch my systems let alone even step in my room.

Still it's gotten much better exclusives than PS3 over the last 4 years, that platform might as well be dead. I'm just not interested in movies pretending to be video games & selling far more than ACTUAL GAMES like Yakuza & Demons' Souls, makes me sick.


Now this is real trolling. Thinking Wii has much better exclusives, PS3 is dead as a platform, and that games like Heavy Rain aren't real video games makes me sick. So there you go.

I figure if I don't even have enough time to play all the games I have for the sytems I have I will just wait until I can get Wii cheap, that is what I meant. Tends to happen to me with one system each gen. Xbox last gen. Not saying Wii sucks. Wii has a number of great games worth getting the system for, just like almost every system.
