No, not to
$50, though that would be an awesome way to tie up this holiday season for Nintendo. Kotaku
shared this possible excerpt from a future Toys R Us ad, showing Wiis for sale for just $199, with Wii Sports
, effective September 27. Now, we're not going to call this true
or anything that implies we have any confidence in this image. In fact, there are a few possibilities:
- It's real (yay!)
- The art of faking retail ads has advanced significantly since the run-up to the PS3 Slim release, and it's a convincing fake
- It's real, but the "price cut" term is actually referring to a Toys R Us sale (still yay, but not universally so).
In any case, just don't
buy a Wii until late September. You've waited almost three years anyway!
