Nintendo to Give Games Away, Cut Prices

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.
