    Don't fight over who gets to play the Wii, just buy another one now that they are going to cost $200.

    The world's top-selling game is about to go on sale for the first time since its inception.

    So you if you are among the handful of people who still don't own a Wii, put a trip to the electronics store on this weekend's to do list.
    Tech blog Engadget says the Wii, which has cost $250 since its 2006 launch, will see its price drop of $50 starting Sunday.
    Engadget posted what it says is a leaked memo from Best Buy Co. talking about the price drop Wednesday morning.

    Representatives for Best Buy and Nintendo Co. did not immediately return phone messages left by The Associated Press.

    Speculation about a price cut has grown after Sony Corp. and Microsoft Corp. reduced prices on their systems in August. And video game blog Kotaku has posted what it says are images of flyers from major retailers advertising an upcoming Wii price cut.
