Leipzig: Nintendo, Part 1

As the Leipzig Games Convention continues, keep checking back here for developments on the Nintendo front. The first story of the day is that Nintendo has already held their "Wii Prove Our Promise" press conference. Nothing terribly new was announced other than a pink DS Lite, coming to Europe October 27th, and two Wii titles: Mario Strikers Charged, a sequel to the arcade soccer series; and Battalion Wars 2, a sequel to the turn-based strategy title. It seems odd that they would avoid sharing the final price or release date for the Wii when they're so close to completion. UPDATE: Nintendo's head of German operations says that in Europe the Wii will cost less than 250 Euros, or $321.50 US. UPDATE 2: Anyone hoping for real dirt on the Wii will probably have to wait for September 14th, when Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime will be hosting a press event in New York City. There will be an additional six hours of gameplay time.
