Wii: Price, date leaked?

Though not citing any sources, British trade magazine MCV claims it knows for certain what the Wii's UK cost and release date will be. At the moment, it's predicting a price of 149 and retail shipment "by November 24th." It also says that an American release will be timed with Thanksgiving, which falls on November 23rd this year. What will the US price be? The UK figure converts to $279.39 under current exchange rates, but given Europe's inflated values and Nintendo's promise to keep the price at $250 or less, $249.99 seems more reasonable. If MCV is right that is - Nintendo UK's David Yarnton tells GamesIndustry that "They're not far off, but they're definitely not right." Could it be 140 on November 22nd, perhaps?
