Here Comes the Wii

Nintendo Wii US PackagingAt a secret press conference in the wii (couldn’t resist) hours of this morning (okay, it was an official event just after noon in Japan) Nintendo officially announced the ship date and pricing for their new Wii system.

You can pick one of these things up on November 19 for a paltry $250, or roughly 280 loonies. So, for the same price of a 30-gigabyte iPod you can have the bleeding edge in gaming technology. Plus it comes with a bunch of addictive sports games that showcase the system’s funky new controller.

So the only question remains: why wouldn’t you buy one?
