Huge price slashing and a Mario Kart Wii bundle rumoured
Wii is still going down a storm, but that hasn't stopped rumours that the console will see its price slashed by a whooping 40 percent by May.
The cost of a Wii could be cut from 249 Euros to 149 Euros, with a Mario Kart bundle launched at 199 Euros at some point this Spring, a "source of France Nintendo" has apparently told Jeux France.
The source also details a two-game bundle, titles unspecified, with two Wii Remotes included, for a total price of 249. A saucy bundle indeed.
[ Note they go on to say they find the rumours hard to believe - but what do you think? Have you heard anything similar? ]
