Wii price slashed down to $169.99 everywhere

This is what we call the calm before the storm. The calm, being the Wii‘s new MSRP of $169.99. The storm, being the highly-anticipated Wii HD/2 console that will debut at E3 in June. Nintendo hasn’t officially acknowledged an official price cut (rumored to be slashed to $150), but retails across the U.S. have already made the move, dropping the Wii from $199.99 by $30. The last price cut was back in 2009, a slash of $50. By now, most people who wanted a Wii will already have one, but for those who haven’t taken the plunge, this could be the final push. It’s easy to look at the Wii and laugh at its paltry amount of quality games, but Wii-fanboys/girls will tell you different. If you keep an open mind, you’ll find plenty of games that offer lots of value. Off the bat, I can recommend both Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2, Super Paper Mario, No More Heroes 1 and 2, Mad World, Epic Mickey and The Conduit. Share with us what games you’re playing on the Wii. Or tell us if your Wii is already collecting dust.

Besides, the Wii 2/HD isn’t expected to be launched until 2012. But that’s just rumor chatter.
