"Industry insiders" predict a possible Nintendo Wii launch in September or October

Nintendo’s Wii may be released earlier than expected if the latest reports are accurate.  Chris Morris, writer of CNN.com's Game Over column, has written an article about the possibility of the Nintendo Wii game console launching a month or two earlier than expected.  Although the Wii had been originally expected sometime in November, with no official release noted by Nintendo, Morris says a release in September or October is not unrealistic.  A June 21 analyst's note claims that Nintendo is already manufacturing Wii console units that are final retail units.  According to the editorial on CNN:

Indeed, the company appears to be already manufacturing final retail units of the Wii, according to a June 21st analyst's note from P.J. McNealy of American Technology Research. That would give it a significant head start over Sony, which has yet to begin final manufacturing of the PlayStation 3.  Microsoft's first Xbox 360 did not roll off the assembly line last year until 69 days before the on sale date of Nov. 22. (That late start in production is the root cause behind last holiday's shortages.)      

With the Microsoft Xbox 360 game console being the only next-generation console on the market today, gamers are anxiously awaiting console releases from Nintendo and Sony.  The $250 USD price tag alone has made the Wii an appealing console for many potential gamers.  Nintendo is hoping to have enough units in stock after the console is released to combat extremely low supplies that sometimes plague other console releases.





"If you can find a PS3 anywhere in North America that's been on shelves for more than five minutes, I'll give you 1,200 bucks for it." -- SCEA President Jack Tretton
