    I was just wondering about what time we are looking at for the release of the console? I hope they release it as soon as late this year, just after I finish my final high school exams. :)

    gamespot has some interesting speculation (based on past nintendo consoles) and the announced q4 release date here

    the whole article is good, but that page has the release and pricing speculation

    Yes, I am awaiting a confirmation date and price. Never before have I felt so much heat and anticipation for a new gaming system. And I will assuredly have a Wii when it comes out, no mater what. Nintendo has impressed me more than I could have imagined.

    I have been doing a little research and I have learned that the price will be around $249 which is not bad at all for the system.

    How about the day after Thanks Giving. Its only the busiest shopping day in the US. People will pack the stores to the brim. This will cause mayhem. This should be the first item on your list cause if you go latter in the day there will be none left.

    Imagine the last Wii on the self and two parents arguing taking out their frustration of the day, trying to get the last Wii. The would make for some great entertainment.

    I don't think so, the wii will have 20 games launching and neither of them are ff or dq... Nintendo is aiming half of the lauch titles non-sequals, things like wiiorcrastra and wii sports.

    No final date is out yet, but a "Nintendo insider" said over Cubed3 that they are shooting for a November 6th date.

    I just read an article that states a possible release date and pricing. The article says that the Wii will launch on Oct. 2nd at $149 USD. Not sure of the Euro dollar amount? To read this article click here

    That would be sweet. :lol:

    Anyway, if it's released in October in the US, when would it be released in Australia?
