Nintendo might be experiencing problems with its Wii gaming console, but that is not stopping the company from putting up a fight this holiday season with a $130 Wii console that comes with two games.
The competition is heating up for the holidays, as all major players get in the ring to battle it out for our hard earned cash. First it was Nintendo, announcing the availability of its Wii U next generation console, then Sony came along with a new version of the PlayStation 3 dubbed as PlayStation 3 Super Slim. Not too long after, Microsoft got in the game with a $50 price cut off the Xbox 360 holiday bundle. Then Nintendo rises again with a price cut of its own, one that is aimed at the dying Wii gaming console.
The bundle is expected to hit stores on October 28, and will have such games as Wii Sports and Wii Sports: Resort. Other items in the package include a black Wii Remote and a Nunchuk controller for the purpose of smashing your TV screen.
The new bundle replaced the previous one that went for $150 and came packaged with Super Mario Bros and a music CD. It is uncertain how many gamers will be interested in a bundle that comes with a Wii Sport title instead of Mario. It is difficult to see this catching the eyes of many when Microsoft's Xbox 360 holiday bundle comes off as a better deal.
Nintendo kickstarted the current generation with the Wii. The company also did what Sony failed to do with the Eye Toy, and that is to popularize motion gaming. Many thought Nintendo's plan would fail, but 6 years later Nintendo was proved correct with the introduction of Kinect and Sony's own Move controller during that time. However, now the Mario factory has it all to do over again with the Nintendo Wii U.
