Nintendo's European press conference

Nintendo's European event

Nintendo's PR campaign continues in London, where the company has been holding a press event similar to the ones in Tokyo and New York City. Far less of the information is new, but there are important facts emerging. The European launch date is December (not March!) 8th, and the system will cost 249 Euros, or 179 British pounds. The box contents should be the same, including Wii Sports. Games will cost between 49 to 59 Euros or 34 to 39 pounds. Eurogamer also mentions that WarioWare Smooth Moves, the Wii sequel to the eminently popular WarioWare Touched for the DS, should arrive shortly after the console's launch. UPDATE: Nintendo says that an extra Wiimote will be 39 Euros (29 pounds), a nunchuck 19 Euros (14 pounds), and the classic controller another 19 Euros (14 pounds). UPDATE 2: The Wii is coming to Australia on December 7th for $399.95 AUD.
