The lights are on
Nintendo announced today that it is dropping the retail
price of three of its top Wii games to $29.99.
The price goes in effect today for Super Mario Galaxy 2, New
Super Mario Bros. Wii, and Wii Sports Resort. According to the press release,
U.S. sales to date for these titles are 2.7 million (Galaxy 2), 9.4 million
(New Super Mario), and 7 million (Wii Sports Resort).
Our Take:If you have a Wii and haven't played Galaxy 2 or New Super
Mario Bros. Wii, I'd highly suggest you do so, especially at these prices. Wii
Sports Resort isn't my thing, but it's definitely more attractive at $30. I'm a
little surprised at these sales figures; I didn't know that Galaxy's sales
tailed behind the New Super Mario Bros' so significantly. It's a shame; I
wonder if that means we won't see another Galaxy?

i tried the first few levels of galaxy 1, didn't like how the world moved n what not , it made me feel like i didn't know where i was even tho i did, it was a pain just to kill a goomba , i guess i probly could have gotten used to it but ..ehh i'll pass of trying longer. honestly i rather see nintendo not do 2 more 3d mario installments that i rather just skip, 64 was probly my favorite and sunshine mighta been better had the c-stick not been inverted
Well, this is a little underwhelming. I appreciate the price drops, but I was hoping to see some more titles. Mainly, because I have NSMB, not terribly interested in Sports Resort, so I've got Galaxy 2, and I haven't beaten the first one yet...
Super Mario Galaxy, both of them, are 2 of the best games I have ever played. Hands down. They should've dropped the price a while ago and 30 bucks for these games is still too high considering how old they are. 19.99 would've made them extremely attractive.
This is great news, now every game is as cheap as the Wii.
Yay! I have these games already.
Anyone who hasn't played the Galaxy games yet has missed out on the greatest platformers ever created. Period.
I haven't played either of the Galaxy games. It looks like I will have to pick one up soon!
Hmm...okay then. That's cool.
oh my god, why the hell did it take that damn long??!
Fiiinally. Been waiting for SMG2 to drop for years.
