Wii are excited, but stable

Two things…

Wii.com has gone live, along with a news release from Nintendo Japan announcing ship date and release pricing for the Wii.

For those who don’t read Japanese and can’t puzzle it out (it’s up the top, above “WiiTM”) it’ll ship on 2nd December 2006 for ¥25 000. It also says that schedule and pricing for foreign countries will come in the next few days.

Following some links from wii.com back through the Wii page at Nintendo.co.jp we get to see a video of the Wii software lineup, as follows:

I count 43 titles there. ^_^

Also, NES games will be ¥500, SNES games ¥800 and N64 games ¥1000.

The Wii Preview slides are a goldmine, and include videos of the Virtual Console.

Did I mention that Zelda: Twiilight Princess is a launch title?

Along with 15 other launch titles, and another 11 titles by the end of the year.

Oh, dude, yay!

Oh, and the second thing…

17:01 <@usotsuki> Debian’s definition of “stable” is different from what most people call “stable”

17:01 <@usotsuki> that’s good and bad

17:02 < TBBle> Nope, it’s pretty much what everyone except computer users mean by “stable”. Think about it in the geological sense, for example. Or the chemical sense.

17:02 <@usotsuki> lol

17:02 < TBBle> ie “If you don’t touch it, it won’t randomly explode”


Edit: Found the Wii software lineup page, and so fixed my video listing above.

Edit: Forgot the AmazonJP link. ^_^
