    My wife and I are die hard Mario Party players. We've been waiting for Mario Party 8 for months and pre-ordered the game. We were told march 5, 2007 was the release date. No such luck. I understand things happen and rarely do things go as planned but Nintendo's lack of information is making me want to go buy a Sony 3 and find other games to waste our time on. "To be determined" is not very relevant when Amazon.com says the release date is June of 2007.
    Part of our frustration stems from, at first not being able to buy accessories and very few games for the system. I think Nintendo should treat their customers with more respect. We are, after all, the people that keep them in business.

    amazon and stores always make up their own release dates, those arnt nintendos. Best buy lists all the unreleased games as the same release date,

    I agree completely. I like Nintendo and I'll support them as long as possible but this sh*t is starting to get annoying. If they truly want to win they need to make CLEAR CUT release dates and stop all this rumor talking. Its getting to be a pain in the headache. Now the ONE game that everyone was so sure about has been pushed back. Next thing you know they'll stall Blazing Angels, Prince of Persia: Rival Swords, and who knows what else. Not to mention Pokemon is supposed to be the first Online game which is fine and all. But they KNOW that we WANT an X Box Live type of Online Setup and instead they insist on using this "friend code" crap w/e it is. They need to shape up. NOT everyone on the internet is a stupid 10 year old whos parents refused to teach them reality. Most of us just want to have fun and play games with other fans.

    Although I agree that I am getting pissed I am also enjoying the anticipation and realistically I would never turn to Microsoft or Sony maybe sometime down the line but not anytime soon

    I agree... It's pretty unbelievabl that they can't even get one single release date right...

    This is the system known the Mario and he gets further and further away. Most people only care about SMG and SSBB - those got pushed back...
    And no a game that probobly takes way less time to develope (MP:8) that cant even keep on task with that...


    We currently have 1 good party game and 1 good epic single player game... That's not enough...

    that doesn't mean you will get it on the 5th.....that was just the release date and you also said you pre-ordered, so i would say imagine you ordered it today (if you pre-ordered online) and wait 6-8 weeks (or whatever said time was).......but....... if you pre-ordered at a local store just do what i did, i went to gamefly.com to see when the "date released" is

    I kind of like Nintendo's mysterious approach, very ninja-esque. All you have to do is add "or is it?!" to whatever date they announce.

    Nintendo : "Mario Party is set to launch on March 5th...or is it?"

    Then when you least expect it, Miyamoto pops out of the bushes and throws the game at you like a ninja star. Then he runs off into the sunset.

    Ya Mario Party 8 is the #1 reason I bought the Wii. Pushing the game back really pissed us off. I am sure Smash Bros, Metroid, and Mario will be pushed as well. Remember Nintendos slogan? Quality over Quantity. Well right now I am waiting to see both lol.

    Well, do you want a good Mario Party 8 now, or a MIND BLOWING Mario Party 8 in a few months?

    Ahhh, good old Miyamoto.
