    IGN yesterday published an article in which they gathered up all their inducstry sources and worked out some interesting dates and prices for the Wii console.

    They claim that Tuesday November 2 may be the big day, and the price tag will be a fantastic $229 USD.

    the article was swiftly removed from the IGN website shortly after it became live - possibly adds more credibility to the report?

    MAN, so many spillages! how do we no if its true? i guess we dont, the only way to confirm this is to wait for September, yes i know it is painful. But maybe this is hinting to us, alot of the spillages we are getting now adays say that the release is in november, so im thinking it will be in november before ps3 is launched although i would love an early october launch!

    I think that it would be smarter to put a price of $199 because when you see $229 it looks like a lot more of money even if it is only $30 more. A guy can look at it fast and think it is $299. But well I should not complain because I like the $229 price, i was even willing to pay more.
