Retailers selling Mario Kart Wii sans Wii Wheel.

NOTE: I've seen this only on some Mexican retailers, so I can't speak for other countries as well.

Just a quick question I wanted to ask.

Since when retailers started selling copies of Mario Kart Wii without the Wii Wheel? I mean, they sell Mario Kart Wii (only the game) and the Wii Wheels separatedly.
So I'm wondering if it's actually something Nintendo dictated/determined at some point and I didn't notice it or retailers are just selling incomplete bundles.

At GameStop here in the US, we've been getting new copies of Mario Kart Wii without the Wii Wheel, too, priced at $39.99, so this is definitely going on outside of Mexico.

Nintendo needs to fix this type of thing with the Wii U.

There is absolutely no reason this game should still be $40 going on 4 years after release.

They're out to make a profit weather you like it or not. :mrgreen:

If it still sells why lower the price? ;)
