We've seen ads promoting the Wii's heretofore unconfirmed new $199 price point from Target
and Toys R Us
-- however, Engadget recently got its hands on
the crown jewel of retailer news leakage: A purported internal Best Buy memo which confirms the discount will go into effect this coming Sunday, September 27. The memo requests that blue-shirted employees keep the cut under wraps until Nintendo formally announces the new price this coming Friday. You guys are doing a great
job of that so far.
We'll keep an ear to the ground this Friday for an announcement from the Big N.Update: Kotaku
is reporting that SCEA has directly referenced the new $199 price point for Wii during a presentation to Best Buy employees in Kansas City, Missouri. Can we please put a fork in this one?
