The word is out, the release date for the US is November 19th (before the Japan release date!) at a price of $250! I think there is supposed to be a conference today in America and tomorrow in the UK!
Anyone else looking forward to getting their mitts on this console?

I've been wondering when they'll finally release the information. I've been really excited about the Wii for a while, but now that I know it wont be for another two months, it's just depressing. I know there was some speculation that it could release in october before. Anyways, i'll probably still get it, but I'm not as excited about it now as i was before :?

I'm giving it serious consideration, ESPECIALLY for that pricepoint. Maybe an Xmas gift to myself?

Yeah, I love the pricepoint too. Compare that to the cost of a PS3, and just call it "spending money to save money" :twisted:

I'm dissapointed in the price point....who decided it was okay to rape the consumers this generation? Stupid marketers, I miss the 200 or less price point....sigh.

And with games going for $60... I'd much rather take a trip down memory lane for five bucks.

I like your way of thinking copronymous!
I want tons of games that are coming out for it: Smash bros brawl, metorid prime 3, mortal kombat armeggedon...the list is looooong!

60 bucks for a game makes baby Jesus cry.

50 bucks was bearable, and didn't make me feel like I was punching myself in the wallet. Jacking that somewhat comfortable price up by 20%? Ridiculous. Development costs be damned...they need to find ways to curb this....product placement? less packaging? ???

Just download the classics for cheap games. I think that is one area where this system will shine. That and the crazy new controller.

We can always import, JH. This time around, Nintendo have said that *their* titles won't be region-coded. Frankly I was steeling myself for 180 but no release until March 2007!

Unfortunately even though in the US conference they said it won't be region-coded, the UK conference said it will be?! It would be good if they weren't but unfortunately they look as if they will! I will pre-order mine from game or gamestation as soon as possible, and when i know what games i want to get with it!
