Walmart’s Black Friday ad has revealed that the company plans to offer customers a chance to purchase a rare blue edition of the Nintendo Wii.
The Limited Edition console appears to be the cheaper Wii version which does not include GameCube support while offering the same blue coloring previously used just for an add-on Wiimote. Included with the console is one matching wiiMote and Nunchuk however a gaming bundle has not been announced.
With no games provided the limited edition console is selling for just $99.96, a price that makes sense when you consider that the two-game bundled systems currently sell for just $150. The sale was confirmed during a televised commercial during the CBS’ broadcast of the Titans vs. Falcons NFL football game.
Walmart has not announced whether the systems will continue to be made available after the November 25 sale date, although it’s very rare that any gaming console would be sold for just a one-day period.
The systems go on sale at 10:00PM on Thanksgiving day and will liking be sold out minutes later.
Will you be attempting to pick up a $99 Nintendo Wii in blue coloring with no Gamecube support?
