Wheeeeeee? No. Wii!

It's official! Nintendo Wii to be released on November 19th for $249.99. "Emulated" games will be $5 for NES, 8 for SNES, and 10 for N64 according to Joystiq. (It will play Gamecube games natively.)

Neat things about the Wii:

  • $250 price tag. (For reference the round X-Boxen are $300 and $400, while the PS3 will be $400 and $500.)
  • 4 million units by year's end (no shortages)
  • Can play all of the Big N's console games
  • Comes bundled with games (Sports Pack: Tennis, Boxin, Golf, Baseball, Bowling)
  • Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess at launch!
  • Metroid Prime 3 in 2007
  • Photos and web browsing on your TV

My wish list has been updated to reflect this. ~_^

Edit: Wii launch titles to be region-free! Sweet.
