Seems like a british magazine let a possible launch date & price slip. According the MCV, the next generation Nintendo console is suppose to hit the market on November 24th with a price tag of 219€. If this is true, expect the US price to be just that in the local currency. The Nintendo UK boss - David Yarnton did mention that the information is very close to the actual facts, but not correct. So the Wii will either be a tad bit over the 200€ mark, or just a bit under it. We will all know more next friday, when Nintendo will annouce the actual numbers.

nah id rather spend that much money on pc components, considdering it is rehashed gamecube components the pirce should be in the £150/€180 price range otherwise nintendo may find alot of people will contnue to wait untill the price is right

I'm all for Wii, I think its the only way gamers can get girls to game with them lol. I will not buy PS3 or XBOX360, but I will buy a Wii, I think nintendo is going in the right direction with this. I think the setup is amazing it will all come down to the games.
