Everything Wii want to know about Nintendo Wii

Gamers still mulling their options following the unveiling of cool new consoles from Nintendo and Sony at the recent E3 2006 conference might want to take a closer look at the Wii, given that Nintendo has formally priced the machine well below the competing boxes.
ADVERTISEMENT

The price, $250, is half the cost of Sony's $499 PlayStation 3 console and considerably less than Microsoft's top-end
Xbox 360 that sells for about $400.

Nintendo has set its sights on shipping six million Wii systems worldwide between its launch later this year and the end of March 2007. The company also said it expects to sell 17 million Wii games during that period.

The lower price tag could help the company gain some ground on Microsoft, which effectively is a year ahead of both Nintendo and Sony in introducing the Xbox 360 late last year

what a wierd news article. they price the 360 Premium but the PS3 base system.
But i really like their six million dollar shipping plan. They will sell well since a PS3 is going to be next to impossible to get.

Dread I just read that in a recent poll from a well known Japanese gaming mag, that 80% of japanese gamers will go for the Wii over any other console. Take that and smoke it MS and Sony. Innovation to save us God willing.

So, we're looking at an early November release for the system. This falls quite nicely in line with a recent announcement by Nintendo where they gave dates for their DS, GameCube and GBA titles for later this year. All titles stopped before November. With this information in hand, we pushed our source a bit further to see if they had an idea of a more exact date. Today, we were provided with the following information...

"So, at the moment Nintendo are aiming to launch the Wii on November 6th"

Our source emphasised that this date is correct at present, but pointed out: "Nintendo aren't going to have an exact date in mind until they are sure they can meet the deadlines". Take it as a guide then if you will, but "they are very keen to be ready in time".

Obviously this shouldn't be taken as gospel and we're not about to shout from rooftops that we have the final Wii launch date, but we are confident that the information we have is correct;

not official, though..

Actually it's 70%, I saw that as well but the point remains that the Wii will dominate in Japan, causing sony to lose some base, well I would include Microsoft in that statement but they have no ground in Japan what so ever. In America though, this price should encourage its sale just as they did with the DS being half the price of the PSP.

Nintendo's strategy is definetly a good one. Build a system thats innovative and be able to build it at a low cost and enter the market with far cheaper prices than the competitors! Worked for the DS and I am sure it will work for the Wii.

Nintendo even has Microsoft's support as shown on the E3 coverage on G4.

Nintendo's market niche is geared towards the people that dont play games, and untapped market. Brilliant. The price, although comming after, is a huge reason to appeal  to any kind of gamer. Nintendo has always appealed to parents who buy consoles for their kids at christmas, which explains why they still own 10% of the childrens market in gaming, which is a lot...A LOT.
Very well done, a bold move that pays off. the DS may have just been the test for the waters.

I knew they wouldnt let us down with the price.  I wonder how much the actual games would cost, and if any are included with the system at purchase?

I don't think it will be long after the first release of it that they start bundling just like they did with previous systems,

on a related note,

i was sceptical about the controller but after the stuff i saw on E3, that mad! just MAD! i real looking forward to owning one.

I agree. The control had me wary, but when I saw what it could do, it blew me back some.
I just wish it could be more compatible for fighting games, though.
Don't wanna think that I'd have to go around whipping my Wii to toss a magic.

although it's at a decent price there are only so much games that would keep you playin it . and besides ppl u know better than to buy a first gen system. they always have some technical problems.oh the supposed reason for the delay was to stock up on the amount in stock for the thanksgiving weekend. but do u really believe that bs ? u really think they gonna say they had a problem ?and what system u have at home.. not at gatt but in your house ?

talkin out yur ass i can see
first off, they eh imitate no one controller, since the ps controller is a modified Super nintendo controller, and we all know that the ps was intended originally to be an add on for the snes now dont we.

Second, the controllers in gatt hq are just fine and we sweat much more than yu possibly could
thirdly
you remember why the cube launch was postponed?????
Ill give yu a hint, Nintendo game cube release date was September 11th. Do the math

boss you could tell me you look at the cube controller and tell me cube didn't try to make their's like the ps? and how old them controllers are?
never....ever ever ever....try to compare the likings on a Nintendo controler to another.
its Nintendo's ANALOG STICK for the N64 that MADE Playstation MAKE Analog sticks for the PSOne...AS WELL AS NINTENDO and their rumble feature.....AND Nintendo and their SHOULDER BUTTON FEATURE. which was on the SNES.
What the hell is this i hearing.....copy the PS controler? THey BLATANTLY copy Nintendo's...they doing it AGAIN...with a half @ss gyro thing that everyone want to know what it there for.

you making a REAL mistake dissing Nintendo youth. A company that does NOT rely on ANY third party companies to sell their console....they make their own games, they make thier own console and THAT is what people buy it for. They dont rely on Square, or Konami or Rockstar (who just drop their exclusivity with SONY mind you). their goal with the Wii is not for young SONY gamers like you....you all SO EASY to chain up. Their target niche is the people who DONT play games and the vets who looking for something inovative..
You could do that? Tap into a market that SONY and Microsoft on their BEST day.....with angles in the heavens and demons from hell on their side..could STILL not think of doing.
Nintendo Wii drop this after PS3 said "Play Beyond" and "the next generation starts when we say it starts"
Nintendo watch them - Well den pallie...we go just hit the reset button....lewee see what you go do then.

actually, phats.. seein that the launch in jap was relatively smooth, i'll buy their reason..   and even if they DID find a problem before the actual release that caused them to delay a  few weeks , i much rather that they do that.. than pass on a half baked console to their early adopters
 
( like everyone else does...      ..the ps2s with the lens problems, the 360 with the power brick shortin out.. the dc had some heat issues as well)

what about the cube controller mimics sony dual shock? analog sticks?  as crixx pointed out, compare the playstation's control to the snes control, which predates it by quite a bit





just graft two upside down horn on the snes control, and slap on a sony logo


with regards to controllers, thas a fact of life, with regards to all systems..  i've had to repair first party sony  and sega..  is just a fact of life when you mashin buttons..  yeh they designed to take licks, but is a mechanical part, and mechanical parts do wear out
