With todays announcement of the Wii Launch details, I’ve been thinking all what this means to us gamers. Yes it’s great that it’s $250, with WiiSports, but on the other hand it comes out 2 days after the PS3 launches! Here are some Pros and Cons to all of the announcements:
-The Wii is only about 2 months away.
-The games are looking better than ever.
-WiiSports will be packaged with the console.
-1st party titles will be region free.
-The Wii Interface seems to be well thought out, and complex.
– 1st party games (and possibly 3rd party games) will remain 49.99.
– Possibly 30 games at launch.
-Mii program seems fun.
-It launches 2 days after the PS3 (That will be messy.)
-Extra Controller pricing strategy: $39.99 for Wii Remote, $19.99 for Nunchuk. $60 for second controller!
-Launch Titles will not feature online play!
Besides the minor problems I have with it (I’ll be spending the same price as I did the 360, $460.00),this sounds like it will be a good launch.
Also, it’s only 12 days until I get to play it for myself at the Nintendo Fusion Tour!
