Now, now, Lobo---they (LucasArts) had already said that they would have held off on the game if they had known about the new Motion Plus.

and, btw--this week TRU is running a special where they are giving away a shirt with the purchase of a Wii.

Nintendo must really look at improving their game developer relationships. Where is my Jedi Lightsaber game and I mean a good one. Not a crappy one.

The price drop is now confirmed. Best Buy also had an online posting about it and now Nintendo is backing it up. Starting Sept 27, the Wii will now be $200.

As for games, totally with you Anthony...they seriously need to help the developers out. That and the system itself is kind of dated. It is basically the GameCube architecture with a few tweaks. However they don't have to run the Unreal 3 engine to make a good game. Zack & Wiki proves what a 3rd party developer can really do...cell shading, fun game, etc. Just no promotion from the Nintendo folks.

yeah, I'm thinking that if the Wii drops to 200, then that's only 30 different from the DSi. So then it would make sense to possibly drop it a bit too. If they drop the DSi, then it would make sense to possibly drop the DS lite some too (but probably not as much as the DSi drop could be).

But that's just me thinking.

I think a price drop would boost sales, but they still need to work on games! They might be better off just giving developers more freedom.

sorry that was like a little rant!

I have been kinda looking at the ds, hope that drops a little.

I saw at one Wal-Mart last night that it was down to 237.?? But that was only that one Wal-Mart--I think they're probably cutting out a bunch of their profit to try and get people to go ahead and buy it.

It'd be interesting to see if there is an actual price drop, though.

Oh, and btw--Hubby said that Nintendo was denying a price drop on the DS (maybe the lite?) the day before they dropped it. It's kinda bad for business to let rumors of a price drop out, as people just won't buy until the drop.

WOW. I remember reading an article a while ago saying that Nintendo was not gonna follow the PS3 and XBox 360 price drops. Guess they changed their minds!

Looks like Nintendo is feeling the pressure of Sony & Xbox price drops. Pictures of ads are surfacing online, showing the Wii at $200. Even though Nintendo hasn't announced anything yet, and were even denying price drops last week, the new price should take place later this month.
