I know some of you out there are wondering - I sure am - How can Nintendo continue to talk about the Wii while still leaving us in the dark about every single one of their launch details? A recent USA Today article answers that very question, when the press-release regurgitation machine known as Reggie Fils-Aime was interviewed about the Wii.

Even though no one knows how much people will be spending on the console or games, Reggie is fully ready to say that the Wii is going to smash the competition. "What do I see? I think our two competitors will trade share between them, while we go off and grab share in a completely different way," he states.Unlike what many analysts have been saying, Reggie doesn't want the Wii to be the console that you pick up on the side, along with a PS3 and/or Xbox 360. Says Reggie, "I'd much rather have the consumer buy a Wii, some accessories, and a ton of games, versus buying any of my competitor's products."

Mr. Fils-Aime, that's a tall order coming from someone who won't even tell us when the Wii will be released. Nonetheless, you can tell that Nintendo is feeling very strong about the Wii, even though they were very tentative when the news about the name change from Revolution to Wii. Think they've got any more secrets still up their sleeves?
