Nintendo Wii now cheaper in SA, new lower priced Select titles announced

With winter fast approaching, and more people spending time indoors, it’s pretty good news that Nintendo Wii is now available at a lower price in SA. Nintendo has announced that on 20th May 2011 it will be reducing the trade price* of its existing Wii bundles, which include a white, black or red Wii console, bundled with varying software titles.
MyBroadband was able to confirm with Incredible Connection that the Nintendo Wii cost is now available at R1600, around R800 cheaper than before…
Nintendo have also announced the launch of Nintendo Select, a range of discounted software titles. The Nintendo Selects range, launching on 20th May 2011, is a value for money selection of popular Wii game titles. Titles included are the all time favourites such as Wii Sportsâ„¢, and the action packed Mario Strikersâ„¢ Charged Football.
Wii Sports introduces a new entertainment experience. Offering five distinct sports experiences, tennis, bowling, golf, boxing and baseball – each using the Wii Remote in a different way to provide a natural, intuitive and realistic feel. Warm up and throw yourself into the action with the hit sports game that will have you on your feet and having fun faster than you can swing a tennis racquet.
Mario takes to the soccer pitch in Mario Strikers Charged Football, bringing his own unique ‘fighting football’ style to Wii. In this follow-up to Mario Smash Football, you use the skills provided by the Wii Remote and Nunchuk Controller to win the ball, score unstoppable goals and take control of the goalkeeper to perform spectacular saves.
So if you have not jumped on the Wii bandwagon, it might be a good time to do so now – or are you holding out for the rumoured HD version?
*The final price to consumers of all Nintendo products is determined by the retailer. However, Nintendo can confirm that it is reducing the trade price of these selected software titles.
