    No "forum" link ;)

    Anyway, we don't know the offical UK date yet. And I think Nintendo will be able to get 4Million out this year, they've had the chips for a while.

    Wii launch dates: November 19 (USA), December 02 (Jap), ............ (EU)

    :( I hope nintendo doesn't shaft us again.

    You have to give the poor guy a minute. He has to publish it, get the thread url then edit the news post to include the forum link. Posting 30 seconds after and expecting it done on a pinhead is a bit hardcore ;)

    Betcha a tenner it isn't!

    Ok I doubt we'll see it for £110 but £150 sounds vaguely reasonable.

    that would put it too near the xboxx 360, more likely to be around the £130 to £150 mark

    I would imagine that there will be a whole bunch of deals... for example, for £199.99 you get the console, a game, a memory stick and a second controller.

    i realy realy realy hope they dont scr*w us europeans, they know that the ps3 will launch late in Europe, maybe they want to use this to their advantage.... i hope not.... christmas will be owned by the 360 and nintendo will not sell any console here.

    If it will arrive here in march (and I really hope ninty aren't that daft) then I will just have to have one imported then flog it off later. I am not waiting on silly release dates.

    However if they do get it here in time then it will be a very merry christmas indeed! :D

    I don't think they'll not release it in europe before christmas.

    Shifting 4Millions units on 2 continents before christmas will be very hard.

    And just to make YOU jealous, I'll have one personally reserved with 10% knocked off :rock: DSG for the win :thumb:

    Think how much people pay for mobile phone games - £5 for Mario 64 will never be too much. Maybe they'll modify mario kart to give it online play, I'd be willing to pay far more than £5 for that.
