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'm sorry, but that's a load of horse-dung.

you can't simply say "oh, a mario game", and discard it as though all mario games are alike. each time nintendo has released a new console, the corresponding mario game has been an amazing technological breakthrough (ok, maybe not quite so much with sunshine, but it was still a decent game).

the point is, if one is to take COD or BF as the standard of "evolving gameplay", than sequel mario games shouldn't even be considered mario games; they're THAT different from their predecessors. clearly you don't have a problem with sequels or "rehashed-to-death" games.

likewise, it can't be a story complaint, because let's face it, space marines were bland before halo 1. to wit, i'm not exactly sure what your complaint is here, but i can think of no instance in which your points are legitimate. there are simply so many other successful franchises which disprove your assertions.

if mario, zelda and company were truly dead, then the franchises would also be dead--rather than each new release being critically acclaimed and vying for addition into "best-selling-games" lists.

True. Nothing has stopped you from saying stupid things all day every day.
