    Default Nintendo Wii Release Date

    According to Sports Illustrated Kids, Nintendo's new console is scheduled for a November 6th release date.
    Here's a pic (it's fuzzy but w/e): http://gonintendo.com/wp-content/photos/102_1242.jpg

    That also coincides with what an unknown industry source said a while ago: http://www.dlmag.com/1752/nintendo-w...-anounced.html

    Furthermore, November 6th is also the date which Nintendo was founded, almost 120 years ago, in 1889.

    Nice. Can't wait.

    This is the only next generation console I am looking forward to, considering the price tag, I think I've already explained the prices.

    Lol Silvio doesn't believe in God or Jesus so that means no Christmas for him! LOL more presents for me, so the Wii is all mine! And you guys know what this means, right? Twilight Princess is scheduled to come out the same day, for both Wii and GameCube. Nice.

    Sweet, Twilight Princess is going to be the FIRST Zelda game I've ever played. Let's just say I've never owned a Nintendo console before or played any of those "classics"...

    Wii Sports are coming out on release date too if I am not wrong.

    I'm getting the Wii from my parents if I get good grades. Hopefully I do. *crosses fingers*


    I love Baby Blues!

    The titles for the Wii I'm looking forward to are Legend of Zelda, Project HAMMER, and Disaster: Day of Crisis.

    Exactly. In games like Red Steel you can also hold the gun "gangsta" style and it'll do it in the game too. God I can't wait for katana fights!

    That's unfortunate for you, Twilight Princess won't implement the Wii controller for sword fighting, you push the A button.

    Red Steel and Project HAMMER are the only ones that come to mind, however, Red Steel is FPS and not that much freedom, Project HAMMER is a third person and has Hunter: The Reckoning type gameplay.

    Sounds awesome man...now umm, so if Zelda is going to be that way, then is Arbalest putting her hopes too high for other games with swords, and fighting and shit ( me as well ), or what?
