Nintendo to Give Games Away, Cut Prices

LOS ANGELES, Feb 6 (Reuters) - Nintendo Co. Ltd. (7974.OS), the Japanese games company, on Thursday said it would cut prices on some of its top games and give away hit games with its console as it works to boost sales for the struggling GameCube...

Even cheaper yet: Circuit City has the Cube at _$139_ with one of the four games (Metroid Prime, StarFox Adventures, Mario Party 4 or Resident Evil Zero) thrown in for free.

One-thirty-nine WITH Metroid Prime thrown in (a game that many new Cube owners would've gladly paid an additional $49.99 for, and one of the few exclusive system-sellers the system has). CRIPES. Microsoft's two-game pack-in deal was an act of desperation; this is "let's move some hardware before we shift all our R&D back into GBA development" territory.

Not that I'm complaining, as this'll mean that used prices will drop into my impulse-buy range that much sooner and my wife'll finally get to play Eternal Darkness.

In an unrelated note, Sega has axed their sports line (NBA/NFL/NHL 2Kx) for the Cube, though they'll continue providing games like Monkey Ball and Sonic for the system. This is a symptom, not a cause, but is certainly notable nonetheless.

I'll answer some; it helps to know that when playing Gamecube games, the Wii becomes a GameCube. This is important. Yes.
