    Nintendo has been awfully quiet lately. Many retailers are selling Wii bundled with a title below $250.

    Anyone know what Nintendo is up to? Are they going to release more channels? Media channel perhaps? Offer Internet channel for free?

    Any news on hardware update and/or price cut? At the very least, they should cut the price down to $199 and include both Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort, along with newly designed remote with integrated MotionPlus.

    I'm hoping for better graphics, to enhance the realism. I think that if it looked better, the experience would be awesome! :D

    Um...Wii HD. Backwards compatible with Wii games, but new HD games require the new console. Typical Nintendo upgrade, similar to their portables. :p

    Same price...

    I know everyone takes the piss out of the wii for being a gamecube 2, but surely it's just the same a a playstation - playstation 2 - playstation 3 ? They're all playstations ;)

    At least the wii is still backwards compatible :)
    (Thank-god otherwise there really would be feck all to play on it period :p )


    Wii has been for me the most disappointing of consoles this generation. I've failed to be entertained by Wii controls except in Wii Sports, Region Locking to the point of anally retentive, a barrage of 'casual' (which should really be '*****' ) games.

    I loved my NES, SNES, N64 & Cube (having both the Cube & Panasonic Q), but Wii........ you really have let me down.

    Whatever Nintendo do next, they need to try and re-capture that old spark rather than continually bastardizing their IP's/franchises...

    Put it at 149, it sell like there is no tomorrow. Sadly I can see them going for 199. A nice drop, but still the Wii used to be in a whole different price world, now its so close(if not more)

    OMG +1, and I think $199 would be the most likely drop if they do at all.
