And the heavens open up.

On September 20th you will be able to buy a Wii U for $299.99. The system’s 32GB model will be getting a $50 price reduction and come in two models: the existing set with NintendoLand and a new one that comes with The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and a special edition Gamepad.

$50 is not the drastic cut I think the Wii U needs, but it is a start and at least shows that Nintendo knows that something has to be done to save the system. If the drop and a strong fall lineup do not bring up dismal sales, Nintendo is going to have some tough decisions ahead when it comes to the future of the console.
