Nintendo cuts price on New Super Mario Bros. Wii

It is not clear if the price cut is also in effect in Europe or other regions.

Wii Sports Resort (bundled with new systems) has already sold 31.89 million units across the world, while New Super Mario Bros. Wii has moved 27.88 million copies globally. Super Mario Galaxy 2 has sold more than 2.7 million copies in the United States alone.

The Nintendo Wii system is currently available for $130.

Its successor--the Wii U--launched last November and failed to reach sales targets. Nintendo announced a price cut for the 32GB Deluxe system recently, dropping its MSRP from $350 to $300 effective September 20. The 8GB Basic model will be phased out.
