    I was looking around ebgames.com for any kind of Nintendo Wii information. Unfortunately, I did not find much so I headed over to amazon.com...

    I searched for "nintendo wii" and Red Steel Shows up, and it says to pre order for November 1, 2006, and the price is $50. What do you guys think??

    EDIT:

    I also found Rayman Raving Rabbids on Amazon, and it says available on October 2, 2006 for $50....Both are supposed to be launch titles, so it looks like amazon is just guessing, bummer...

    Didn't some of the PSP games (I think it was this console) come out a week early? So if that was the case then the games could come out before the console although I highly doubt that.

    They're just guessing at the date. They don't know any better than we do.

    They're advertising it as "Coming Soon" and you can pre-order down at my local Myer department store.

    I would expect sometime in November for around $450 - much cheaper than the XBox 360 at $650 and the PS3 at $1000.

    They are just placeholder dates. They mean nothing until Nintendo announces when the Wii will become available.

    I'd bet on November.

    At US$200 (though US$150 would be better) and a wide selection of launch games.

    Think the Wii come out at first in Japan only so that I can buy a couple and sell them for super expensive? :D
