We ran into a gaming website claiming that they were able to get some inside information from Nintendo in regards to the Wii release date. According to their sources, as of right now, the Nintendo Wii release date is scheduled for November 6th.
… 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”.
Since Sony has already announced the PlayStation 3 release date, and Nintendo did announce a Q4 launch date at this years E3, it makes sense that Nintendo would do everything possible within their power, to get their new console out into the market before Sony launches the PS3.
Please take the November 6th launch information with a grain of salt, as nothing has been confirmed by Nintendo yet.
