    just something i found on aussie nintendo which means that the aussie nintendo company is actually doing something

    10 Sep 2006 - Nintendo impresses mainstream Australian media after hands-on offerings.


    Preparations are completely underway for the Australian launch of the hotly-anticipated Wii, and news outlets have been given the opportunity to go hands-on with the console at Nintendo Australia's headquarters in Scoresby, Melbourne.

    The Age and the Herald Sun have reported on their experiences, with both expressing great impressions from the revolutionary new offering.

    "The latest hands-on play confirmed that gaming with the motion sensing Wii-mote is both delightfully intuitive and unnervingly foreign," wrote The Age's Jason Hill.

    The Sunday Herald Sun yesterday ran a half-page spread on Wii and also spoke of their delight. "We had an exclusive play with a prototype of Nintendo's next-generation offering and came away seriously impressed."

    Nintendo Australia confirmed to the outlets involved that it is indeed on track for a pre-Christmas 2006 launch and said that the launch date and price details will be announced within the next fortnight.

    Stay tuned for those very details, as soon as they break!

    So true m7ticalm!

    Wow I can't believe Nintendo Australia are actually doing something! We hear almost nothing from them and they never make any announcements. The only thing they've done for us would have to be the NintendoWiFi service which is friggin awesome :D

    hey

    When I first learnt of this some time ago, I was quite surprised... that is the Nintendo DS Lite was actually released in Australia before everywhere except Japan. :)

    Here are a few of the release dates...
    Japan: March 2, 2006
    Australia: June 1, 2006
    United States: June 11, 2006
    Europe: June 23, 2006

    See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nintendo_DS_Lite.

    hey

    I am sorry for the double/tripple post. I was a bit confused, as my post wasn't showing and I thought it somehow didn't work. I now see they are finally showing, seemed to take ages (hour(s) or so, not exactly sure???).

    I ask... please may a moderator delete this post, as I seem to be unable to.
