IGN Turning the Wii Rumor Mill Again With Price, Launch 'Details'

If we were to post every single Wii rumor that ever hit the Internet, our list of Wii stories would rival the National Archive. However, now that we're getting close, some of the information trickling down could be accurate. So even though this should be taken with a grain of salt, we can't dismiss it entirely.

IGN recently published a new story that outlines what have now become the universally accepted details concerning the Wii launch. And fortumately, at least according to IGN's "sources", the inflated $299 price point that the 7-11 gas station chain unveiled looks to be out of the picture.Here's what IGN has to say about the Wii launch: "The only official answer from Nintendo is sometime before the Thanksgiving holiday in America. But sources -- both on the hardware and development side -- argue that the console will be hitting much sooner. A number of big-name publishers are set to release their Wii games in mid-to-late October, which suggests that a system debut could not be that far off. And several insiders have told IGN that November 2 could, in fact, be the big day."

In terms of price, IGN says they've heard from multiple outlets that it will be $229, and that the console will be sold in both black and white. It's the first we've heard about what colors the Wii will actually be released in.

We can only publish so many more of these rumors. The clock is ticking for Nintendo to give us some official conrete details! If you're tired of rumors, be sure to check out our official Nintendo Wii report that outlines the specific info we know for sure.
