May 15th is still a month away, but the Nintendo Wii's price won't wait -- both Best Buy and Toys 'R' Us already have the motion-controlled console on sale for $170 today. Mind you, this doesn't look like a permanent price cut -- note "Limited Time Offer!" above -- but we wouldn't be surprised if o...

That word comes straight from Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, who's attempting to clamp down on recent speculation that a Wii price cut could be in the of...

This obviously isn't the sort of thing that Nintendo is going to come out and confirm itself, but analyst Koya Tabata of Credit Suisse has apparently determined, or at least guessed, that Nintendo has managed to drastically reduce the manufacturing costs of the Wii since its launch. Specifically, ...

Though last week's entirely unexpected slashing of the Xbox 360 price in America hasn't inspired copycat cuts in Europe yet, Microsoft is more than happy to display some price tag violence in the land of Kangaroos, shrimps on the bar-B and countless crocodile wrestlers who roll their eyes whenever A...

If the recently rumored $100 price cut for the PS3 turns out to be true, it will end the era of one of the most controversial pricing moves in the history of consumer electronics. The writing was on the wall early on, with former SCE President Ken Kutaragi hinting way back in July 2005 that he hoped...
