Wii Launch Date/Price Rumors
IGN has compiled some rather interesting rumors coming from certain “insider” sources. This information should definitely be taken with a grain of salt.
- November 2 could be the big launch day since publishers are listing games as releasing in late October
- Wii will launch with a $229 price tag and will be available in both black and white
- Nintendo has boosted production of Wii systems to more than five million units due in large part to the positive press from E3 2006
- The console is unlikely to be region-free, a firmware update could theoretically allow gamers to play import software.
