Nintendo wants to be like the big kids, considering new SKU
Codename Revolution is reporting that retail stores are receiving a new Wii SKU. Not much is known except that it is being referred to as the “New Pack”, it will have an SKU of “045496880088″, and retail for $289.99 Canadian (one guess where their informant is located).
Canada? It’s Canada, right?
Doesn’t it seem kinda random, like Nintendo felt left out and this is just a ploy to steal some attention away from the other consoles’ buzzworthy revisions? Does to me. There was no build-up and there’s not really a demand for it; it’s like they threw the rumor out there themselves, cause all the details you’d usually have to pry out of an anonymous mole’s dead hands is already out there besides what the new package will actually include.
It’s hard to imagine what they could do to make it substantially more attractive to anybody outside of bundling some games or peripherals all NES-like. The speculation round the web is that it could be a new color, Zapper bundle, or something else similarly unexciting.
Well shit, this is the first real piece of chewable Nintendo news in ages. Can’t hate them for trying.
