Mii Too

Nintendo confirmed a $250 price tag and a November 19th release date for its new Wii gaming console (pronounced "we"). Engadget has a good summary and some interesting points regarding the new console as well as some links to other sites. USA Today reports, "Wii owners can download and play games from Nintendo's older NES, Super NES and Nintendo 64 systems and NEC's TurboGrafx. Initially, about 30 games (usually $5 to $10) will be available, including The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario 64. Games are saved on SD memory cards, which can also be used to import digital pictures." But be prepared to shell out $50 for new games, $40 for an extra controller (plus $20 for the nunchuck), and the cost of an SD card to store the games you download in the virtual console.
