Nintendo pricing, launch date announced

Nintendo is announcing today that its next-generation Wii console will go on sale Nov. 19 for $250. That’s $50 less than what Microsoft charges for the basic version of its Xbox 360.

Each system will reportedly come with a copy of “Wii Sports,” a collection of sports-related games including the tennis game that Nintendo played up so much at its E3 presentation in May.

Nintendo is looking to get 4 million of these to stores by the end of the year and 6 million by March.
