Wii Legacy System for $149.99?

According to Cheapass Gamer, the new Target ad shows the Wii "Legacy" system for only $149.99. This is the system with only Wii Sports and no Motion+ accessory.

It's not really new, since this is what the old Wii sets were marked down to when the Wii Sports Resort bundles came out, but it looks like Nintendo is making it permanent and not just clearing out old hardware.

Is this a response to last month's relatively disappointing NPD numbers?

I'm not seeing anything about a new SKU, it looks like that's just how Target chose to sell it.

It is a fancy title to help clear inventory and differentiate it from the $199 model. Why would Nintendo go back on Motion Plus at this point? That would be a backwards move.

This should work for you right?

It would, but I'm just gonna spend the extra 50 for black, wii motion+ and wii sports resort. I'm gonna need the latter two things at some point, anyways. -fist bump-

I wish I could say its tempting but the full black sku is going to have to have alot of $150 deals Nov-Feb if stores want anything more then lukewarm enticements.
