    How about I push the forum's potential and post new news in a new thread, as a way to broaden overall discussion on the Wii?

    kthx.

    I have a site WiiNintendo.net used for just this purpose and since the people on GBAtemp are for the most part very up-to-date and knowledgeable, it would be great if you signed up to post your news/info/reviews/articles etc....

    You can sign up and start posting on the main page right away, it's pretty cool. There's about 60 people signed up and about 5 of us who post regularly:

    Submit your stuff:

    Well if we're plugging sites now, I might as well plug my own. Check the signature.

    While news has stopped being posted recently, expect news to be flooding in on the 23rd.

    hey i read a bit on that site...
    and then it struck me!
    in one of the headlines you wrote Sadness is being published by Majesco...
    Then in the articletext you wrote Majesco is developing Sadness...

    Now both you and I know that's BULLSHIT! Majesco isn't developing Sadness, they are only publishing... that is if, they ARE the publishers?
    publishing != developing...

    Zelda TP has been changed so that you can now use the Wiimote to swing your sword. [​IMG]

    Update: Wii launches in October. Several sources have this Ign hinted not only on their podcast of 2 weeks ago but also on the www.ign.com frontpage poll.

    Pictures with dates (2 now around same date) http://slipperyfish.net/?pagename=possible-wii-release-date

    Price im not sure of, a date in October neither. Could be late could be early could be in the middle [​IMG].

    Waiting on the following:
    Connect24 online info
    Opera 9 features (straight port from pc meaning irc client builtin)
    Online gameplay (yes we know it is free but beyond that the user interface)
    Launch package (wiimote's? game ship with console?)

    If i can think of others ill put these forward.
    Have any news on the ? please post [​IMG]

    does anyone even know when they'll announce the release date....or maybe when they'll announce when they're going to announce the release date [​IMG] ? I'm getting tired of all the speculation.

    There's a topic here that says it'll be Oct 2. I really hope it will be, I'm really hyper about the Wii.
    I read that the controller will use 2 AAA batteries? I was hoping it would be rechargeable or something.. :S
    Another thing that I found weird is that on Amazon.co.uk you can preorder wii games but not the actual console?

    Anyways, can't wait! [​IMG]

    It's tomorrow , speculation is over by then [​IMG]

    If not you would have to wait for the Tokyo Game Show to be over i think that is next month, by then all of the specs/details of every inch of the Wii and peripherals should be out.

    Ehm http://gc2006.thq.de/?p=live/feed

    They might be streaming stuff from the conference tomorrow.

    i found that the "Wii prove our promise" conference starts at 10:15AM. I'm assuming this is germany time, which means 3:15AM my time. I don't think i'll be staying up for that, but it will be a nice surprise in the morning!

    Leipzig proved very nice.

    So the only thing which was a major letdown is the lack of online support in the launchwindow games.
