Keep refreshing that site for constant updates.

This is the big one guys. The moment we Wii enthusiests have been awaiting since E3. More info about Nintendo's plans will be released at this meeting. The US meeting will be tomorrow while the Japan one is on right now. I think Europe is in 2 days.

99.9% chance the Wii release date and price will be revealed, so keep watching.

Edit- Real conference now in progress. Don't be turned away by the content in this topic just yet!

Here's the live feed. It's going horrible so far. They wont shut up about the DS. It's sickneing. "Wii prove our promise" is holding very small ground now. But atleast their begining to show videos.

I think its because they know everyone wants to hear about the Wii so they're "building up the tension" on purpose. Save the best for last, after all.

I hope your right. It just that..well..damn..44 mins of the DS and their still going strong about it. It's only an 1 hour and 30 mins long afterall. The press must be bored out of their minds. The internet is going to explode if they don't get this price and release date information before the night is over. Because that surely wouldn't look good for us, when it comes our way later on.

I just realized something.

The event hasn't ended, so why does it have a time limit as if it was already made before?

I've been looking on gamefaqs and people have been saying that "live feed" is old news and not the real one. It makes since after all. It's not being broadcasted LIVE.

Edit - Even that website I posted found out it was incorrect. We just got completely pwned.

Well the press conference is definately scheduled for today and tomorrow so I dunno what the deal is.

That video is from june XD

We were totally butt raped by someone's cruel joke. Oh well. Only thing left to do now is to wait for the REAL one, which will be between now and tomorrow.

Edit - Keep an eye on this site. It's confirmed to be the real one. Nothing has happened yet though.

It's been confirmed. It's true. And all I can say is...What the hell ?: $250--November 19th launch ?--Are they nuts ?.. The Playstation 3 will crush any advantage and momentum they had. And to make matters worst, they lied to us all, by stating that the price will not be $250, flat out. It was suppose to be $230 or cheaper. They lied 2 times in a row, and it was all discovered in one night.

1. We will not be last out of the gate.
2. The Wii, will be cheaper then $250.

They lied about important area's. What a way to ruin everything. This can't be true. How could Nintendo possibly **** up such a great opportunity. This is just unbelievable. I dont understand why they put their worst foot forward, time and time again.

They never said it would not cost $250, they said the price would not go over $250, no idea where you got $230 from o_O.

Rofl, have a bigger cry. $250 (US) is still **** all, and it comes out before christmas- this really isn't that horrible, I was braced for $250 from the start and they probably realise that people are going to pay, easily- due to the positive reaction to Wii thus far.

I honestly don't see why you're so upset. $250 isn't that much. Price will varey depending on where you live. I mean, compare the price of the Rev to the price of the PS3. It's still a big gap. $600 vs. $250.

I'm still going to get a Rev. It's cheap, I can afford it with my budget with a little saving time, and I'm positive I'll enjoy it.

The $250 and Nov. 17 things are both fake. I checked a few sources.

If you want true blue info, wait for a true reliable source (joystiq, nintendo go, ect) to post it.

http://www.gwn.com/news/story.php/id/10307/

That site is up to date on the real one now. No launch or price stated yet.

Edit - Here's another up-to-date blog hosted by Joystiq.

http://www.joystiq.com/2006/09/14/nintendo-japan-conference-not-so-liveblogging

Final note:

DO NOT BELIEVE ANY WEBSITE THAT SAYS $250 AND NOV. 17th! These have been proven false and every article stating them has been pulled (or will be pulled). Wait for it to be said in the conference which is going on right now!

No, the Nintendo senior managing editor clearly stated that the price of admission will be under $250 USD. The $230 was a personal estimate, after taking in consideration to the fact that the Wii was stated to be less then $250 USD. The Nintendo DSL is currently $130 US. I assumed that the Wii's price might have similar price of admission; Either way, if it was going to be cheaper then $250, then most likely, it wouldn't have exceeded $230 USD.

Rofl, have a bigger cry.
I was crying?--and here i thought I was just *****ing. ^_^

I honestly don't believe that the Wii is worth $250 for hardware reasons, and I wasn't expecting it either. I envy you greatly, for bracing yourself in a better position then I did. And on top of that, I had no desire to play Wii sports--nor did I have a desire for two Wii-motes during it's launch window period.

I honestly don't see why you're so upset. $250 isn't that much.
Well I honestly don't see why you would easily pay $250 for a Wii. It's not worth it. Also, im aware that price varies depending on your location. That was never the issue to begin with. The price gap between the Wii and Playstation 3 is greatly in Wii's favor--that still doesn't justify a $250 price tag in my eyes.

The only way the Wii could ever be worth $250 to me, is if it's region free. Other then that, of course i'd be upset, because I had been lied to about the price tag, and their release plans. And because I do want to see them succeed at placing and holding the Number 1# spot this time around, it bothers me that they wouldn't try to capitalize on such an obvious opportunity to get a giant headstart over one of their greatest competitors. It's good that none of this has been confirmed to be true yet. We will see later on though.

Edit: On second thought--maybe it is worth $250.
