    Nintendo's Press Conference at the Games Convention in Leipzig just ended.
    [​IMG]
    Here are the news that were broken during the conference:​
    • The PINK Nintendo DS Lite will be released in Europe on October 27th
    • Mario Strikers Charged, a Mario Smash Football / Super Mario Strikers game on the Wii. The game will be online.
    • Battalion Wars 2 announced on the Wii. Abbriviated as 'BWii'. The game will be online.
    • The world-class publishers EA, SEGA, THQ, Activision, Namco, Konami, Square Enix, Capcom and Ubisoft will be working on the Wii
    That's all! So Nintendo's still holding the Wii release date secret.
    Wait and see...

    A new Nintendo Event is happening on September 14th, The Wii is the focus and will be playable. Most likely the time we'll get the release and price information.

    When is the next gaming convention where we can expect a possible release date announcement? I was disappointed by this keynote speech, especially after they said they were going to 'prove their promise'.

    They did, it's called Battalion Wars. Like it or not, that's the way the console version ended up. [​IMG]
