Nintendo has brought the price of its "Deluxe" Wii U game console down from $349.99 to $299.99 in an effort to compete with the planned releases of Microsoft's Xbox One and Sony's PS4 this November, just in time for gift-giving season.
“Nintendo has one of the strongest and most diverse video game lineups in our history,” Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime said in a statement. “Today we’re making those unique Nintendo experiences more accessible and affordable.
In addition to the Wii price cut, Nintendo also plans to release an "entry-level" version of the DS. Called the 2DS, it will cost $130.
