    Just to let you guys know, Mario Kart Wii is said to be $59.99, and is now coming out 1/2/08 instead of the first. Not that 1 day is a typical problem, but the price change is a big one, and it's probably because of the wii steering wheel.

    Offical date and price estimated, and it is gamestop, but this is interesting....

    I wonder if they'll sell it without the wheel. I REALLY don't want the wheel.

    could it be that they put it at $60.00 so people might pre-order it and when Nintendo says it's actually $50 its too late to cancel your pre-order and gamestop gets money.

    No, I think gamestop has some policy that if the pricing goes down, you get the new one. But I don't think the wheel is worth $20! I want the wheel, but that's a rip.

    59.99 is not that bad of a price really.
    Isn't that the rate for most new games?..plus 32 player online etc. is worth that in my opinion.

    It's actually only 16 player online...(which is semi-confirmed)

    Anyway, there is no reason to trust what gamestop has to say. Both the date and the price are completely unnofficial until nintendo says something about it. So, as of right now, there is no reason to trust what any site has to say unless they have a press release from nintendo.

    Nintendo has not announced a price or release date yet. So retailers use their best guesses.

    It should come free with the game. ( Or at least cheaper than that! )

    It's not the official boxart because they are going to change the title.

    Yea, I thought the same thing. It's only confirmed as Q1 and that's it.

    I think $60 isn't a great price at all. $20 for a piece of plastic?? I can see five and maybe ten but 20?

    It isn't that bad of a price, and where are you getting $20 from, most wii games sell for $49.99 new, not $39.99. So it's an extra $10 for the wheel, over priced yes, but not too much to ask, also like other posters have said it isn't confirmed, it is just a speculation that Gamestop made. I do think that it is a good find, if true, but until there is confirmed details via Nintendo then I will have to take the price that Gamestop posts on their site as nothing more than a guess.
