    Gamestation taking Wii pre-orders for £20 deposit (UK)

    UK retailer Gamestation.co.uk has released a press statement saying they are currently accepting Wii pre-orders for a mere £20 deposit.

    It may be Wii, but the launch of Nintendo’s next generation console is BIG news for gamers. Come 8th December 2006, eager console fans will be able to wave the innovative Wii controller around to their heart’s content. Gamestation urges gamers to pre-order as stock is low and anticipation is high for Christmas.

    The Nintendo Wii focuses on gameplay rather than raw power and aims to woo more than just hardcore gamers with its intuitive controller and raft of games with mass appeal. With a special price starting at £179.99 with Wii Sports, Gamestation offers fantastic value, while giving gamers a truly next generation experience.

    Always daring to be different, Nintendo is shaking up the games world with its Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers, which include motion sensors for the ultimate in interactivity. Gamestation is expecting the controller to be a big hit, with the ability to swing the controller to cut down enemies with your sword, flick it to go fishing in fairytale lakes or point it at the screen to guide an in-game plane to land, making it easy for everyone to pick up and play.

    For launch Gamestation will have a list of highly anticipated new games for Wii, including The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and samurai first-person shooter, Red Steel.

    In addition, the Wii’s Virtual Console feature allows gamers to indulge their passion for gaming days of yore. Players can download favourite titles from the likes of Sega and Tecmo, as well as Nintendo, spanning the last 20 years.

    Martyn Gibbs, Commercial Director of Gamestation says, “The Wii promises to give gamers a fantastic Christmas, offering great value for consumers wanting a genuine next generation console experience. As always, Nintendo has a fantastic line-up of games, which will be available from Gamestation. Anticipation is building and the Wii is going to fly off the shelves so we are urging gamers to pre-order at their nearest Gamestation store or online.”

    The History of Nintendo

    * Nintendo is known as the oldest company in the video game console market and is still one of the most influential and most well-known console manufacturers
    * In the 1970s Nintendo hired Shigeru Miyamoto – now a living legend in the world of gaming and the man who’s creative talent would secure Nintendo’s longevity
    * In 1983, Nintendo released the Famicom in Japan, their first cartridge-based console, which was released in Europe in 1985 as the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)
    * Miyamoto’s Super Mario Brothers secured the success of the NES, which is still spawning a string of Mario titles on both console and handheld
    * In 1992, Europe saw the release of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and despite fierce competition from Sega’s Genesis, the strength of Nintendo’s franchise titles such as Super Mario World and The Legend of Zelda won the day
    * It wasn’t until 1995 and the birth of the 64-bit era that consumers saw the console wars we know and love today with Sony’s PlayStation entering the fray against the Nintendo 64 (N64)
    * GoldenEye 007, Super Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time all become known as some of the best games of all time and helped the N64 stave off the might of Sony’s PlayStation
    * By the time the Nintendo GameCube came out in 2001, more edgy games appealing to an older audience such as Resident Evil stood alongside the ever-popular Mario, Zelda and Metroid titles to compete with the wide appeal of Sony and the entry of Microsoft’s Xbox
    * Today, anticipation for the Wii is high and Nintendo looks set to repeat the success of its previous consoles with a relatively low price point and a focus on high quality, inclusive gaming that delivers more than just the latest graphics

    From NES to Wii
    Gamestation is the only games retailer still selling all Nintendo consoles past and present.

    The Nintendo Wii is released 8th December 2006 at Gamestation stores nationwide, and via the Internet at www.gamestation.co.uk. To pre-order a Nintendo Wii customers simply need to pay a £20 deposit
