Nintendo: Trade prices for Wii-make games are lower than usual

Wednesday, 21st January 2009 10:41 GMT By Mike


Nintendo has responded to yesterday’s reports that Wii-makes Pikmin and Mario Power Tennis were to retail at £39.99 – the same as a brand new game.

“Nintendo do not set prices,” said a spokesperson for the company to GI. “It is up to retailers at what price they sell any item for.”

“However, our trade price for these games will be below our usual trade price for Wii games and our present estimate of the likely retail price is in the region of £29.99.”

    Better, but still at least a tenner too expensive.

    Yup. 19.99 would be somewhat reasonable. Can’t say I’m the least bit interested though.

    £25 seems fair.

    For an eight-year old game with the bare minimum of control changes? I’d have been happier to see them at about £15.
