    Counting down the hours, but probably will take the retailers a few days to get their ducks in a row on pre ordering. Don;t think they will be ready as soon as the release date and price breaks.

    Tnanks for that. Ive been wondering if the news will be waiting for me when i get home from school. By the way, is ALL of that time of them talking or is does that include the playing. I assume the playing on the console is afterwards?

    Sounds like a plan. ill simply be getting up at 6am tomorrow. No release day or price, but i'll find out if there's anything major thay're not telling us... perhaps a bundle package... ill know all the specs. The games on the virtual console. How it'll work. A rough price of them all. How the internet will work on it. Any more games? New controllers?

    perhaps ill make it 5am?

    Yea, but I am talking about the UK price...The Japan price will be cheaper than the UK price, because we have sooo much tax added on.

    So I will wait till friday to learn about the UK price (if that makes sense?)

    LOL, i was thinking that, this is my theory:
    : I read on aussie-nintendo that tonight there will be something on the news which will tell us the release date
    : They might release the AUS details at the European conference cause of the whole PAL thing that euro and aus have in common.
