This one really should have been a no-brainer. Nintendo announced that the Wii would weigh in at less than $250 come release date. They didn't waffle or hint, but instead stared us in the eyes like
women men discerning individuals and declared their intentions. We like that.
But a certain convenience store contest got everyone all lathered up over a little line in the rules declaring that the Wii prizes were worth $299. That fine print birthed a seed of doubt. Had the price changed? According to the prize rules for Nintendo's Camp Hyrule, the answer is a world of no. Camp Hyrule's fine print lists the value of their Wii prize as the familiar and comfortable $250. Our staff magic 8-ball is leaning towards the original $250 pricetag, but we'll keep you posted on all the sudden speculation.
