Nintendo has lowered the price of its Wii gaming console to $129.99 and has bundled two classic Wii games, making owning the motion control system that changed the industry an option for even more people than before.

 
The more affordable black model will come with Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort on one disc, as well as a black Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk controller. Previously players had to buy the New Super Mario Bros. Wii model to get a black edition of the console.
 
The games, combined on one disc for the first time, offer the motion control experience that showed off the potential of the Wii in the first place, featuring tennis, bowling, baseball, archery, table tennis and basketball, among other popular sports.
 
 
The price drop is obviously designed to encourage sales ahead of the impending release of the Wii U, Nintendo's next-generation console, which launches 18 November in North America, 30 November in Europe and Australia, and 8 December in Japan.
 
“Nearly six years after it launched, people are still attracted to the pure, inclusive fun of the Wii console,” said Scott Moffitt, EVP of Sales & Marketing at Nintendo of America. “A new suggested retail price and the inclusion of two great games make it an easy choice for families looking for a great value this holiday season.”
 
The new edition of the Wii console will be available by 28 October.
