Well, the details are in. The Wii's coming November 19th, and it'll cost you $250 damn dollars. Surprised it's not under two bills? Don't be
, it's a lot less than a lot of people are willing to pay right now. At the Nintendo event later today in New York (we'll be there) we'll catch a glimpse of the 25 game announcements preparing to be made, as well as more official launch details -- but in the mean time we know
it'll ship with Wii Sports
(baseball, bowling, golf, and tennis -- all very
addictive), Super Mario Galaxy will not
ship in 2006 (boo!), it'll have a photo streaming service, news and weather channels (most likely a part of WiiConnect24
, but still a bit bizarre), and Opera for browsing the web; new titles will run you $50, while Virtual Console games will cost between $5 and $10 apiece. But really this stuff is all you really needed to know, isn't it? November 19th, $250. November 19th, $250. And yes, they're still apparently on track to meet their four million unit goal for their 2006 launch. Still, stay tuned for more deets, they're inevitable.
P.S. -Why are you still here? Shouldn't you be reading Joystiq's live coverage
of the Nintendo event going on in Tokyo right now?

We've heard from our Japanese correspondent that the Wii will not ship bundled with Wii Sports! Bummer!
