Nintendo have just fired through a press release email announcing that as of tomorrow, the Nintendo Wii will get its first price drop in Australia, coming down a sweet $100:
Nintendo announces that from tomorrow, 29 April 2010, Wii - the biggest selling home console of the current generation - will be available for only SRP $AU299.95* ($NZ399.95 SRP). This is the first time Wii has received a price drop in Australia and New Zealand, Previously Wii was SRP $AU399.95 ($NZ499.95).
This comes hot on the heels of their recent DSi price drop, and also coincides with the release of Monster Hunter Tri (our review can be found here).

Wow. So it's taken three(?) years for sales to finally drop low enough to warrant this?

Guess they want people to go out and buy black wiis. Which is strange because this is 1 of those odd cases where WE got something before americans did. They don't have the black wii yet.

it was selling pretty consistently, which is why they never budged, but this also comes on the same day Monster Hunter Tri is released, thought not sure why they didn't just bundle it all up together, but yeah I think sales are waning
