Australian Wii Launch

[News] [Computer Gaming]

Okay, when I predicted Australia wouldn't see the Wii until March, to match the PS3, I was wrong. The details are thus:

It launches in Australia on December 7 for $399.95 AUD. It'll come bundled with Wii Sports and there'll be about 20 titles available at launch.

Europe's getting it the day after, on December 8, for £179 or €249.

It's a tough call, but given that I'll probably only be able to get one before Xmas if I pre-order, and that the launch line-up is good but not great, I might leave my purchase until January. We'll see. If I happen to be in an EB over Christmas, and they have one on their shelf, there's a good chance that I'll be using one of those crazy controllers by New Year's.
