Nintendo has told CVG that there are “no plans” at present to reduce the cost of Wii.

“We currently have no plans to cut the price of Wii,” a Nintendo spokesperson told the site. “Current talk of price cuts is rumour and speculation. This is rumor and speculation as Nintendo have made no announcements on price.

“Furthermore this is most likely retailer led much in the same way retailers in the UK offer price promotions on our products.”

The comment was in reaction to the Toys R Us add sporting a $50 console reduction in North America.

Guess it’s just a sale at the retailer, then.
