Wii Price Cut Peeped in Leaked TRU Ad

Thanks to a low initial price and longevity in demand, Nintendo hasn't had to do very much with the Wii's price.

While Sony and Microsoft have had to either bundle free games or drop the price, the Wii has held the very same $249.99 it did since the day it launched in 2006.

Three years without a single price drop for a video game console is unheard of, and it seems that Nintendo probably won't be going into its fourth year without some move on price – if leaked flyers sent to Kotaku are to be believed.

A $50 price cut would bring the Wii in line with the Xbox Live Arcade console, giving shoppers this holiday season an affordable price point for both hardcore gamers and those more casual who just love to waggle.
