Rumor: Nintendo already boxing Wii

Wii boxThe rumor mill has it that Nintendo is gearing up to start boxing completed Wii systems as early as next Tuesday. IGN states: “Clever users investigated a number of work agencies postings and found recent job openings for Nintendo’s North Bend location, which houses the facility that packages and distributes the publisher’s products… Nintendo of America is looking for a production agent trainee to work out of its North Bend facility, and the person will most definitely be handling as many Wii systems as they can get their hands on.”

Makes sense if Nintendo in fact reveals a launch date and price this Thursday as expected. While I hope I’m wrong, I’m still betting on a mid-November release.
