Nintendo WiiAccording to The Associated Press, Nintendo has announced a $20 price cut for the Wii gaming console.

The Wii, which revolutionized motion-controlled gaming, had a $250 price tag when it debuted in 2006, but now you’ll be able to snag one for $130.

The 6-year-old Wii is set to be replaced Nov. 18, when the newer Wii U hardware goes on sale starting at $300. (A deluxe version will cost just $50 more.)

Microsoft on Monday also announced a limited-time $50 price cut on two different Xbox 360 bundles, even though its own new hardware may be nearly a year away. See IGN for the details.
