: Having already lowered the price of its Wii console
earlier this month, Nintendo is now well and truly sounding the holiday wars horn, announcing new Wii bundles to go with the console's big Christmas releases.
From November 4, a special Skylanders Giants
Wii bundle will be made available in the U.S. for $149.99, with a blue Wii, two Skylanders
toys, one Giant Skylander
and a 'Portal of Power' thrown in, with the aim to attract parents via the current booming popularity of Skylanders
The other bundle will offer a white Nintendo Wii with Ubisoft's Just Dance 4
for the base $129.99 price. The Just Dance
franchise has proved extremely popular on Wii, selling more than 13 million units to date on the Nintendo console alone.
