Wii Release Date Announcement Due Soon
Nintendo will be holding press events in Europe, Japan and America right before TGS.
By Li C. Kuo | Sept. 1, 2006

It looks like we'll soon learn the official launch date and price point for Nintendo's snazzy new Wii console. The Japanese newspaper Kabushiki Shimbun is reporting that Nintendo will be holding press events in Japan and America on September 14 and in Europe on September 15. The article predicts that Nintendo will use the events to announce pricing and release information, as well as to show off region-specific products. This press event takes place a week before the Tokyo Game Show, which Nintendo traditionally does not attend. Thanks to our brothers in arms at IGN for the heads-up.

Well I was unsure if to put this in the PS3 thread or this one, but I figured if I did the fanboys would get their panties all in a twist, so considering its a good forecast for the Wii I think its fine being here. Have a read:

Retailers expect PS3 to get the Wii kicked out of it

Now is the winter of our discount tents


By Nick Farrell: Monday 02 October 2006, 16:20

 RETAILERS HAVE

given the thumbs down to the PS3 and are expecting the Sony console to be soundly beaten up by Nintendo's Wii.

A survey of retailers conducted by the Japanese media outfit Enterbrain shows that 88 percent think that the Wii will sell better over the Christmas break, only 11 percent believe the PS3 will be tops. Since this is a Japanese survey they didnít even bother asking if they thought the Xbox 360 would go anywhere.

Out of all hardware sales, 60.7 percent Nintendo DS would be the best seller, followed by the the Nintendo Wii at 32.8 percent. The PS3 would be outclassed by the PS2 at 3.3 percent. The PS3 and the Xbox360 will have 1.6 percent each, which shows how bad it is going to get for Sony in Japan.

More here.

I don't really see your comparison laetes... the article says they suspect the PS3 will NOT do well citing a host of issues (unless you're reffering to the link in the article which I didn't read). And that the Wii would do better... I not sure how you made a comparison of how the DS was techwise inferior and was propsed to not do as well as it does... kinda reverse.. the PS3 is superior techwise but the Wii is cheaper, more innovative and is just plain different and they suspect it will do better regardless...

oh gosh boy the tech part was merely an example, i am saying that pre season 'opinions' which is all that anyone has right now really don't say squat. don't compare the example, focus on the point.
Gotcha... should say so in the first place lol.... I still think the Wii is gonna rock the PS3 world...

Wii production exceeding expectations
Posted Oct 5th 2006 11:45AM by Christopher Grant

Briefing.com reports (subscription only) that, according to UBS, 2 million Wii consoles were completed in Q3 (July-September) to support Nintendo's upcoming Q406 global console launch, beginning November 19th in North America. In addition, "at least 7 mln and potentially as high as 9 mln more units are in the build plan for 4Q06." The report continues, "this production ramp handily exeeds [sic] a publicly announced tgt for 6 mln units to ship by yearend"; however, Nintendo had previously announced plans to ship 6 million units by the end of their fiscal year (ending March 31, 2007) and only 4 million by the end of the calendar year. The language appears to indicate the possibility of building, if not shipping, as many as 11 million Wii consoles by the end of the calendar year!

With production exceeding expectations, why release the console so much later than many anticipated, and right on top of the PlayStation 3's November 17th launch? It all comes down to software. While Nintendo may have warehouses full of Wiis, they need a launch lineup and reliable system software to go along with all that stockpiled hardware. But Zelda has to be done ... we would have been happy with just that, promise.

And for those who think programming for the Wii-mote will be difficult, think again:
