I'll just wait for the eventual $99 price point. Having waited this long and not seen too many titles I'm interested in, I think I can wait until then.

I'll just wait until the Wii U comes out, buy a really cheap Wii and catch up on all the games.

In stores as well. Saw this last week, but didn't post about it because... well, there's been far better deals... guess I should have posted it, seems like there are some interested in it...

Lol, what games? The best games one the system are the Metroid Prime Trilogy, of which the better 2 are available for Gamecube, and Okami, which is a PS2 port.

I'm a Nintendo fan and even I can see why people would still be uninterested in the Wii.


I honestly hope the Wii U bombs in sales like the 3DS so I can get it on the cheap.

I hope the Wii U does well so Nintendo can keep putting out games I love instead of going bankrupt. I get that this is CAG but come on man.

I agree with you to an extent. I bought a Wii in 2007 and sold it early on in 2010. But I do want to play SMG2 and the Metroid game that came after Prime 3. I'll try out Goldeneye and NSMB while I'm at it.

The Wii may be a pretty lackluster system, but it had the best game of this gen - SMG.

They WILL continue to put out games regardless of what you think.

No, but some independent sellers on Amazon are selling it for that price-

Look where it says "29 new from $134.00"

If it's just like the Wii, I hope it bombs as well, so maybe they can get back to their original demographic and stop catering to parents and children.

^Bingo. Although hardcore games such as Yoshi's Island for SNES still catered to children... I think you meant to say "parents, grandparents, frat people, and casual non-gamers".

Yep, saw it at Target too. Tag says valid till 8/20/2011 but the free game offer expires tomorrow since that was their weekly ad special.
