Wiiii. Price is not bad being that you get a free game. Wish it was a Mario though.

Still not sure about that controller. It might get tiring for me waving my arms all over the place.

Bad part is Wii games aren't B/C with the GCN controller, only Smash Bros has been confirmed for that.

Sahweet. PS3 has some major competition on their hands, even with just the Wii. Yes, Sony, I said it, you have MAJOR competition. :D

Getting reports it could be bogus, the actual Conference is going on now, should have 100% confirmation soon. Alot of people are pissed, they said under $250 and well before PS3.

Yes, but what I'm saying is, no Wii games aside from SB will work with any controller other then the Wii controller.

Alot of the games have a kiddy look that only a ten year old can enjoy but some look fun.

Just please let Metroid Prime 3 be a launch title. That is all I ask.

Eh, I'm getting one Nov 19th either way :P

I've already been given the green light by my ball-and-chain to purchase one. I think I'll head over to EB today and put down my deposit.

Hmmm.. it seems like the US Wii version WILL come with a game bundled (Wii Sports). $250 with a game bundled seems like a very good deal. I predict that the Wii will sell like hot cakes this holiday season.

Wait... Zelda not launching with the Wii? Gasp! Nintendo Lied!

At E3 they said that the game would be a launch title for the Wii aswell as the Gamecube releasing the same day.

Both versions will be available with the launch of the Wii.

the revelation that Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess will be a Wii launch title.

I know im just being an ass but I like to poke fun since everyone gets so hyped when Sony or a developer does something like this...

Personally? I can wait, Im stoked for the new Zelda. I don't care much for the Wii version but I will be first in line (even ahead of Zelda_fan) for the game upon its release.

According to Reggie as of 15 mintues ago, Zelda is still a launch title.

9:40 AM: Excite Truck will be a launch title, as will Zelda. These combined with Wii Sports are a "fantastic trio" says Reggie. "For the first time ever we have a Zelda title on launch day". "It's a masterpiece game". 104 Wii games demonstrated at the Japan press conference not long ago. List of third party games is shown. EA's Larry Probst speaks: "A bridge to mainstream audiences", he calls the Wii. 30 games available at retail during the launch window he says. Half of those (15 games) at launch says Reggie. Games priced at US$49.99.

If I could manage to get 2 PS3's this fall I think by selling one soon after release I could probably pay for both PS3's and a Wii. :D
