Nintendo Wii launching Nov 12 for $250 ($230 w/out Nunchuck)?

Unconfirmed Infendo tipster and self-proclaimed Nintendo insider Ryan R. writes: “It’s me, everyone’s favorite ‘unofficial’ Nintendo Rep with some BIG Wii news that everyone has been waiting for. That’s right, the release date: It will be November 12 [keeping in line with my prediction on Infendo Radio #23]. This keeps up with our Sunday release tradition. The N64, Gamecube, GBASP, GB Micro, NDS, NDS Lite have all been released on Sunday. The original GBA unfortunately was not on a Sunday. Plus we’re beating Sony out of the gate by less than a week to try and get those few people who plan on getting both systems. But of course we’re not in direct competition with Microsoft or Sony.

Wii’s price hasn’t yet been finalized. The higher ups don’t yet know whether or not to bundle the nunchaku with it. What they do know is that if it’s not bundled, it will be $229 and bundled price will be $249. Also Goldeneye and Perfect Dark may be on the Virtual Console eventually. The Donkey Kong Country games, Donkey Kong 64, and Diddy Kong Racing will be on there for sure. Higher ups are still working on getting Goldeneye and Perfect Dark added into the deal.”
