Rumour: Price Drop Inbound For Nintendo Wii

It's believed, according to a "trusted source", that Nintendo are willing to drop the price of the Nintendo Wii just before this year's E3, on the 15th of May.

The rumour was started by tech website, Engadget, who state that they believe the console will be reduced down to $150, a move which will help to boost the console's flagging sales.

Speculation has also been rife that Nintendo are due to announce a new console, which would diminish the effectiveness of the Wii. So a pre-conference price-cut makes sense for Nintendo.
