Looks like the fellows at Gamestop let the pricing for Nintendo's Wii Wheel slip, and $14.99 is the price you'll be paying for each friend you have over on Mario Kart Wii day, (April 27th.) The game will retail at $49.99, which includes one Wii Wheel to boot, but for multiplayer mayhem, you're going to have to fork out that little bit more. Friends suck...not in a good way. Jump to see a blown up shot of the flier with the figures. [Gamestop; Thanks, David W]
$14.99 pales compared to the approximately ten times that Fry's Electronics is marking up the Wii today. I finally found a store with some Wii consoles in stock (Fry's Electronics in Campbell), but they are sleazily requiring customers to purchase them in $400 bundles that include unwanted games and accessories that probably aren't selling much on their own.
