Fine, at least it comes with a game. No Mario or Metroid? Fine, at least there is a Zelda. But Launching 2 days AFTER the PS3? = TEH SUCK As it turns out, the console will arrive on Sunday, November 19, in North America and South America. That puts the console's launch just two days after that of its archrival, the PlayStation 3, which has recently seen its own debut scaled down. But while only 400,000 PS3s will be available at launch, the Times claims that the Wii will be "far more available in stores this holiday season" than its competitor due to its cheaper and simpler form factor. Nintendo has since announced plans to ship 4 million Wiis worldwide by the end of 2006, nearly double the 2 to 2.3 million shipped PS3s Sony is now forecasting. As many suspected, the Wii will cost $250 in the US, according to the article. Since Nintendo executives have said it would be under $250, the likely final price will be $249.99 or $249.95. It is now also confirmed that it will have more than 25 first- and third-party games available at launch, with 30 on shelves by the end of the year. First-party games will cost just $50, $10 less than most third-party PS3 and Xbox 360 games; it was unclear what third-party Wii games will cost. http://www.gamespot.com/news/6157572.html http://www.gamespot.com/events/wiilaunch/n...ype=news&page=1 UPDATE: Gamecube version of Twilight Princess pushed to December Edited September 14, 2006 by kumquatq3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
