    Originally slated for a January 15 release date, Wii Play's appearance on store shelves is now been pushed back to February 12 according to the Nintendo press site. Being a compilation of mini-games, it's possible that the delay is to give WarioWare: Smooth Moves (slated for release on January 15) a chance to sell some copies before the mini-game plus controller combo that is Wii Play goes on sale.

    Or maybe we're just conspiracy theorists. To tide yourself over, be sure to check out some of the videos of Wii Play, recorded by sister site GameVideos.

    If you need the controller get it.

    But don't get it for the game, it is awful.

    Trust me.

    Like I said it is ok first time round, maybe second.

    It's ok in multiplayer but you will find yourself playing it less and less.

    The only game that is really decent is Tanks, the bull one is ok in multiplayer.

    It is not ten dollars, you still gotta pay for the controller.

    I know where your coming from I understand.

    But just don't get your hopes up thinking it is amazing.

    i dont believe this thread...i think most people have already preordered wii play for the extra remote so i doubt delaying it will give them any more revenue

    As the article says, which is from an accurate source (Electronic Gaming Monthly), it's more than likely being delayed to let WarioWare have some limelight in Janurary.

    I've got it and I think its quite alright, and ironically I think Tanks is one of the worst games :) but I'm easily pleased, and tbh knowing that I got it for a fiver ('cause of Wiimote) makes me like it more :D

    Again, that's probably why it had been delayed. If Wario Ware had been delayed it would of technically been a huge slap to the face for many Wii fans, but since it's only Wii Play that is being delayed it's not seen as being such a big issue. But a question does come to mind, will there be third party publishers (I.E. Nyko, Pelican) to come out with Wii controllers before the release of Wii Play?

    Is Wii Play 45 dollars, then? I derive this from the fact that Wiimotes cost $35.

    Does WarioWare come with a controller? If not, I don't see the point in comparisson. I haven't heard much about this stuff, though. It doesn't look like theres much info on nintendo's site aside from short game descriptions.
