Best Buy Selling Wii for 169.99

Well, now we can call it official:

Best Buy is now selling the Wii for 169.99…right now.¬† So you can take advantage of this pre-E3 price drop right this second, or wait till tomorrow and pick it up at your local Best Buy store.¬† We just spied this on Best Buy’s website, and it looks as official as it can get. This pretty much confirms our previous post that Target will be doing the same as of Monday. E3 is right around the corner and this hopefully means the news will officially break for the next gen Nintendo console.

Will the “Wii2′ use a similar WiiMote as the Wii? Will it have some funky looking GameCube/Dreamcast/Xbox controller with a 6 inch touchscreen that seems to be rumored? Will it be in HD? And more powerful than Sony and Microsoft’s current hardware? Once again this is only speculation. We, nor anyone else really knows at this point what may be unveiled at e3 this June. But until then, let’s stay excited.

      It's a bit of a catch 22. When you have user registrations that's one additional thing to keep track of, one more thing to hack, and WordPress comments are absolutely atrocious. Disqus enables us to rip through comments quickly and efficiently, allows multiple sign in options, and allows site visitors to use their account across a wide variety of sites (Engadget, ThisIsMyNext, etc) without re-registering. The downside is that your account is only associated with commenting, and not directly associated to the website.
