Wii Launch Details

It turns out that the rumors of a $170 Wii were somewhat exaggerated. The official report is now out with Wii launch details and the price point is $250--but that includes a controller and a game--Wii Sports.

The console will hit stores on Nov. 17 and Nintendo says they'll have 4 million units shipped before the end of the year.

Wii will also let you download classic Nintendo games through Wii Channels. You buy 20,000 Wii Points for $20, and then download games that cost: 500 pts. for NEW; 800 pts. for Super NES; 1,000 pts. for Super Nintendo.

There's more. Follow the link and scroll down. Holler if you still live with your parents.

It's something like $218 in Japan, but they don't get the game included. So it's not too far out of the ballpark from their historical track record.
