    welcome to Bit-tech! :thumb:

    I doubt they would modify Mario Kart as Double dash for cube had online play. Hopefully they can make that work with the wii but I guess I shouldn't hold my breath.

    Im really excited about tomorrows announcements and I'm just hoping that it's UK price and release date will be this year. The g/f is ready to reserve as soon as pre-orders open too :D

    I can see this getting released next year in Europe. Prepare to be shafted.

    I really hope ninty wins this round as they are doing everything right. A good system at a great price on time and with innovative features. If there was any justince in the world we would be talking about the Wii's Pwnage of Sony and MS in January :thumb:

    Hmm, I wonder if that means it'll also be 'region free' with gamecube disks. I imported my gamecube from the US you see.

    Then again, can it play gamecube disks?

    I seem to remember reading somewhere that it could.

    Or did I?
    Was that just a vivid dream?
    Whats that noise?
    Who's speaking?

    :worried:

    If people didn't know www.wii.com is now in english too.

    Lots and lots of good info.
    It has completely convinced me that this will be my first console.

    That is way too much for that system, and with the 360 costing the same (after the rumored $50 price drop) there is just no reason to get this system. I def. will when it hits $100 like the GameCube tho'.

    £179 - released Dec 8th. http://www.gamingbits.com/content/view/1098/2/

    Not as cheap as hoped, but not as expensive as it could have been. If I didn't own a 360, the £20 price difference between the Wii and 360 core would be a no brainer and the 360 would be the prefered console. Let's hope that it has a price drop in the not too distant future.

    Edit -> And they're expecting to make a profit on them too. Maybe that accounts for the slightly higher than expected pricing: http://uk.gamespot.com/news/6157690.html?sid=6157690
