    Roundup: Nintendo of America Conference

    Here's a round-up of the key points from the Nintendo of america conference which took place this last hour.

    Roundup: Nintendo of America Conference-9.jpg


    * The Wii will be on sale November 19 in North America! "The worldwide debut happens right here in the Americas - the same place where we debuted the Nintendo DS. On November 19, it will be available at more than 25,000 points of distribution across the Americas. And will a manufacturer's retail price of $249.99. One price. One configuration. One color." The color is white.

    * Wii Sports will be included with the Wii! "Everyone will get it when they buy a Wii." It will be the first 'pack in' game since the SNES.

    * 25-game launch lineup, not surprisingly being led by The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Its the first Nintendo console to do so.

    * Roughly roughly 30 games are to be released by the end of the year, and all first-party games will be in at $49.99 or under.

    * Reggie unveiled the 'Wii Channels' interface which lets you start up a Wii or GameCube disc, as well as hitting the "Wii Shop Channel" to buy older games for the Virtual Console (and look for Super Mario World and Super Mario 64 at launch). After launch, Nintendo is estimating around 10 new games a month to be available.

    * NES games will be available for 500 Wii points, Super NES games for 800, and Nintendo 64 for 1,000. Wait, Wii what? Looks like they're taking the same tack as Microsoft: Consumers part with fake money more easily than real money. A 2,000 Wii-point card can be had at retail for $20.

    * The "Mii" channel is introduce. Mii lets you create your cartoon-like avatar to represent yourself within games. These profiles are stored on your remote and allow you to transport them around with you.

    * Reggie starts speaking about WiiConnect24. Mentions the news and weather channel when Wii is connected to the Internet.

    * Additional Wii remotes will be $39.99 (20), separate from the nunchuk, which will be an additional $19.99. (10)

    * Zelda: Twilight Princess for the Gamecube has been pushed back until December 11.

    * Metroid Prime 3 now a 2007 title.

    Well everything looks good but one thing. The controllers are going to be 40 bucks! Thats ridicoulus! Then you have to buy the nunchuk seperate for 20 dollars. Thats really going to suck. The wii sports is a good idea though. Nice coverage.

    Pushing the Gamecube Zelda back to December was a pretty smart move i think, intentional or not.

    Dunno, probably a couple of days after these announcements have been digested, not sure how long it will take the retail outlets to get their stuff together.

    delicious news

    good prices too. i knew the wiimote was gonna be more expensive than average because of the motion sensing and things. (atleast thats what i think of 20)

    only bad thing is that metroid has been held back to 2007

    and i like the avatar thingy called Mii

    Im not sure if metroid being held back is too bad. We will have Zelda to keep up company 'till mario and samus arrive. If all three games came out on launch we will complete them before xmas and have no mario, zelda or samus to play for like 2 years!
