The kind folks at Best Buy have pulled off the shadester move of the week, and are offering Nintendo Wii
games for "pre-order." Right now they have Red Steel, Super Mario Galaxy and Super Smash Bros. Brawl available for pre-order, with a supposed release date of 12/01/2006. All three titles are priced at $49.99. The odd thing about it is that the two first party games, Mario and Smash Bros., aren't even slated as launch titles, not to mention the fact that releasing a console 8 days after Thanksgiving is a bit silly. We're sure these are just placeholders for now, to get your bucks early (like those crazy Xbox 360 bundle schemes
), and actual details will be filled in with time. Those dang capitalists.
