Console Price Drops are Coming: Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360

Nintendo Wii and the Xbox 360 get a nice price drop for the holiday season.

With the upcoming release of the Nintendo Wii U on November 18th a price drop may have been expected by few for the original Nintendo Wii to squeeze out those last few sales. The Xbox 360 bundles for the holidays are also getting a price drop, may be due to the rumors of the next gen console, Durango, in development.

Nintendo is dropping the price of the Wii bundle from $150 to $130. While the Xbox 360 bundles will start at $250 instead of the original $300. The Xbox 360 bundle for $250 is already available while the Nintendo Wii bundle for $130 will be ready around October 28th.

There will be 4 different bundles for the Xbox 360: two at $250, one at $350, and another one at $400. One of the 250gb Xbox 360 $250 bundles have a copy of Forza Motorsport 4 and a digital copy of Skyrim. The other $250 bundle includes the 4gb Xbox 360 bundled with Kinect, two Kinect games: Kinect: Disneyland Adventures Game and Kinect Adventures Game. The $350 bundle will come with a 250gb Xbox 360, the Kinect, plus three games for Kinect: Kinect Sports, Kinect Adventures, and a digital copy for Dance Central 2. The last bundle for $400 bundle is a limited edition Halo 4 320gb Xbox 360 and a copy of Halo 4.
That's a lot of games in those bundles.
Heard about the price drops from CBS and Joystiq.

Will you be purchasing one of the bundles? Are you waiting for the Wii U? How about the Durango? Will you wait for another price drop, if any?
