The new $129.99 USD bundle will be available through much of the U.S. starting October 28

Nintendo will be releasing a whole new Wii bundle in time for the holiday season, and it will only cost $129.99 USD.

The new bundle will feature a black Wii console along with matching black Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk controllers. It will also include both "Wii Sports" and Wii Sports Resort" games on one disc. The sports games include a variety of options like bowling, tennis, baseball, basketball, etc.

"Nearly six years after it launched, people are still attracted to the pure, inclusive fun of the Wii console," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "A new suggested retail price and the inclusion of two great games make it an easy choice for families looking for a great value this holiday season." 

The new $129.99 USD bundle will be available through much of the U.S. starting October 28. 

The price slash comes nearly a month before Nintendo plans to release its new Wii U console, which is due out in the U.S. November 18. There will be a basic model for $299.99 and a premium model for $349.99. The new system offers features like 2GB of memory, 1080p graphics and a new Wii U GamePad controller.

i have to agree with reclaimer. nintendo haven't had an original idea in a very long time, all they do is remakes of existing titles. i'm not against a new mario game, but you have to innovate. sega overdid the innovation with the dreamcast and failed to develop enough titles for existing franchises (seaman instead of new versions of well-known titles, for example), but nintendo is simply and firmly stuck in the past. their old stuff is fine, but they need new stuff to attract people older than 12. and decent hardware. i'm tired of the "but the gameplay is more important!" argument; good graphics have never been an impediment to great gameplay. so what's stopping them from building a decent system for once?

That's what nintendo is aiming to fix with the Wii U. The launch title isn't Mario or Zelda, they're pushing ZombiU, albeit a potential ripoff of Resident Evil. Not exactly a game you'd give to your 12yr old.

I can't see the graphics being groundbreaking, that's not Nintendo's style, their appeal is relatively low cost and accessibility for everyone, leaving PS and xbox to duke it out over graphics. Still, if its a strategy that works, don't fix it: you can bet your house that you're going to get the same characters in several never ending quests to save their girlfriends.

Graphics has only not been Nintendos style since the Wii, everyone seems so quick to judge... All their other consoles where superior upon release (aside of gamecube vs xbox, but still GC was superior to PS2 hardware wise). Why do people now forget this?
