Wii to launch before November 24th, European pricing revealed?

The internet is abuzz today, as MCV, a dependable "interactive entertainment" magazine in the UK, is claiming to have details of the Nintendo Wii's launch date and price. While MCV acknowledges next week's Nintendo press events are where the details will be confirmed, they claim to have learned the next-gen Nintendo console will launch worldwide by November 24th, and will have a sticker price of 149 (US$280).

While this all looks and sounds like exciting news, the truth is, we all knew this. Granted, MCV claims to have a solid UK price, but that price is completely within the bounds of what we were expecting. What's more, MCV didn't provide a release date, but, instead, provided an end to a timeframe that we were also expecting. After all, the 23rd of November is Thanksgiving. If Nintendo decided to launch the Wii any time after that, they'd be morons. And, truth be told, if they don't do it before November, I'd also be willing to go on record for saying Nintendo missed a great opportunity.

I do take heart in MCV's confirmation that, "Wii stock availability will not be an issue in the UK, with plentiful supplies anticipated for both the November launch and the Christmas run-in. This should eradicate any pre-order woes and will be enough to satisfy demand across retail."

Take that, Sony!
