    Wii released 19th November (Sunday) and Gamecube also released 18th November (also a Sunday).

    Most likely true. Nintendo relies on holiday sales too much.

    Late April Fools, false rumour, or true stuff?

    Give me a moment, I need to think.




    EDIT: Typo.

    EDIT2: They better not make EU wait too much...

    And there's no problem with that. Along with the Wii releasing in the US first, the NDS did too. Still a rumor though.

    How the hell does a Japanese retailer have a US release date?

    If this comes to be true they should also plan to realease it at a price from 299.99-349.99, anything beyond will not be purchased by many,

    Doubt they would nowadays, I'd even expect it either the same week or before.

    Not really, if all companies did that, there would be too much to choose from, hence less potential buyers, the more choice you have, the less chances are you'll buy something belonging to a certain company.

    I'll probably get one, but it all depends on price. Nintendo also needs to say what all it comes with. Remember that stunt they pulled with the Wii's launch? Zelda was obviously the biggest game, but it required a Nunchuck attachment, which was not included.) If they do something like that again, where an extra thing is required for the big launch titles, then it'll further hamper it.

    I highly doubt that we will need another attachment for this console, since Wii U's controller includes everything, even a tv if you dont have one.....lmao

    Aww, if this were true it would come out the week after my birthday. (taking as a grain of salt, so I say "aww")

    I was thinking early/mid October, though.

    No I don't remember that, mainly because it DID come with the nunchuck.

    So soon, still can't believe this generation is almost over.... I'm still amazed everytime I touch a PS3 by just about everything.
    Although new systems are always welcome ;)

    Dunno, but my launch unit came from Walmart, after waiting in line for 8 hours. All it had was the Wii, one Wiimote, and Wii Sports. Nothing else at all.
