    According to an article Bloomberg.com, Yoshihiro Mori (Nintendos senior MD) was quoted as saying that "the player won't cost more than 25,000 yen".

    That equates to roughly ~$223 / ~£119

    So that ties in with the other reports regarding the wii price, still no official confirmation but i think this is pretty much a guaranteed price range.

    I'm more concerned about the launch date. I've heard everything from August to Thanksgiving to closer to right before xmas.
