Did you Order Your Nintendo Wii?

Posted in Nintendo,Wii by Chetz on October 14th, 2006

Nintendo Wii

GameStop, which is probably the biggest video game retailer in the US, said on it will be accepting limited pre-orders for the Nintendo’s Wii video game console yesterday (Friday), one per household. If you haven’t gotten your order in, you better get on it.

All you need is 50 bones to reserve, but many stores were reporting to be out of availability within minutes. Maybe it’s hype, but you can call your local Gamestop store first to see if they have some left. No online pre-ordering is/was available, but they say they will have something at a later date.

Nintendo expects to supply 4 million Nintendo Wii units to stores by year end, and Sony expects to ship 2 million PS3s in the same time period, so by my count if you missed the pre-order you just might be ok.

Nintendo is gearing up for the holiday seasons with this new Nintendo Wii (pronounced ‘we’). It is expected to be available in the US November 19th (right after Sony’s PS3 comes out) and available in Japan in early December.
In this version Nintendo seems to be targeting a little bit younger audience (which is line with it’s recent campaign to have Nintendo toys in Happy Meals). It sounds like it’s intention is to not compete directly with the PS3 or Xbox, but to less sophisticated gamers.
The controllers will connect through wireless Bluetooth and have a motion sensor along with the common unitive features. There is also a remote “Nunchuk” style remote that works with motion by waving it like a wand.
The Nintendo Wii is going to be a little different in that it is doing more to integrate gaming and the device with the …
