    Okay guys, today, August 17, means there's 6 more days till they MOST LIKLEY tell us the release date && price, and maybe more. The event is the "Wii Proove our Promise" at the European Expo, here are some promises they have made:

    -Wii will release before Thanksgiving.

    -Wii will be under $250.00.

    -Wii first party games will not be over $50.00. (I find this most likley to be true, I mean, is buying the Wii version of LoZ: TP really worth the 10 extra bucks? Why not just buy the GC version?)

    -Virtual Console games will be $4-$9.

    Let's hope we can get the console for $199.99 with 1 controller, or pay 249.99 who a game, (probally Wii Sports) and 2 controllers!! (Personaly if the game was Wii Sports I would just buy the second controller seperatly and get the $199.99 version)

    Reply promises to add to the list, please provice sources!!!

    While no pricing info has been announced for the Virtual Console feature, at the June 2006 Nintendo briefing, Satoru Iwata suggested that new, original, low-scale games could be sold via the Virtual Console at a price of between JP¥500 and JP¥1000(≈USD$4–$9 or ≈€3.5–€7).[33][34] In a presentation in Spain, it was mentioned that Nintendo of Spain was considering a pre-paid card option for its Virtual Console purchases.[35]

    Okay, yah, those first 3 things everybody knows, I coulnt find the source for the Virtual Console price, which I knew about, so I didnt put it up there, I hope we get pre paid cards, because even though they are targeting all ages, most of the players will probally be under 18. And i dont know about you guys, but whenever i ask to use my mom's credit card she says NO, even if its totaly secure. (atleast with online, at stores and what not its fine)

    Maybe they will introduce some kind of top-up card option where younger Wii users can purchase game credits in stores and use the codes or whatever to download on the VC.

    Will be interesting to see exactly how Nintendo will approach the VC for its younger market.

    USA today review stated that the Wii was coming out November of 2006, and I don't think they would put a guess in the newspaper without saying it is.
