Wishful Nintendo Wii Speculation

The latest news is that the Wii will come out November 17th 19th and cost USD$250.00. This is a little different from my predictions which was late October and $200.00. I realized after the fact that I based my prediction on wishful thinking. I'm going to be in the US in October, so naturally I wanted it released in October. I thought they would offer a more expensive version with two Wiimotes, despite all the ads I saw on the internet with only one wiimote. It's obvious now that I just wanted to play together with my son, more wishful thinking.

What I'll probably buy right off the bat:
  • Nintendo Wii ($250.00)
  • Extra remote ($35.00)
  • Classic Controller ($15.00)
  • Extra nunchuck ($15.00)
  • Wii Sports (included)
  • The Legend of Zelda ($60.00)
  • Red Steel ($50.00?)
  • Total $465.00 so more than $500.00 with shipping tax etc.
The Wii will also include some interesting internet applications. A news and weather channel, and a photo viewer: hopefully I can link it to my flickr account.
Other news that was positive is that you'll be able to download older NES, SNES and N64 games directly from the internet (for $5.00, $8.00, $10.00 resp.). This is a great idea and is pure profit for Nintendo.
Nintendo plans on selling 4 million units by the end of 2006, that's pretty ambitious, wish them all the luck.
