Nintendo said it will announce the Nintendo Wii console's price and launch date in September.
It is almost too convenient that Nintendo makes a statement one day after rumors surface stating the Wii could launch as early as September. A few weeks back we heard that Nintendo plans to announce the Wii launch date/price by September, but a clarification has come from Nintendo.
“There’s no change in our plan to release the console in the last quarter of this year. We are planning an announcement in September and it may be causing some confusion.'’ - Yasuhiro Minagawa, spokesperson for Nintendo Co. Ltd.
