Nintendo bolsters Player's Choice range

Metroid Prime, Super Mario Sunshine, Star Fox Adventures to join the price butchering. Eeeeee!

Back in September we rather cynically (what, us?) reported on Nintendo's expansion of the Player's Choice budget range in the US, with Super Mario Sunshine, Metroid Prime and Animal Crossing making up the new additions. Would we ever have gotten the same treatment? Well er... yes, actually. Ulp. That's the sound of us eating our words and/or hat.

Nintendo has announced today that it is to similarly expand the Player's Choice range in the UK from October 10th (a European launch will follow on the 17th) with both Super Mario Sunshine and Metroid Prime, and Starfox Adventures in place of the ever-elusive Animal Crossing. The range - retailing at around £20/ €30 - already includes Luigi's Mansion, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Pikmin, FIFA Football 2003 and Medal of Honor: Frontline, as well as the slightly less appealing James Bond Nightfire.

It doesn't take a genius to work out that coupled with today's announcement of a Cube price cut to £79 on the very same day, this Christmas may well prove to be unavoidably Nintendo-flavoured. It would certainly be interesting to know what Microsoft think of it all. What will they do? What will they do? Wha-[Thump -Ed].
