Wii Launch Speculation

Just a link. But I am curious about launch titles... Seems like rushing it might make for a light line-up, unless we're looking at Nintendo first-party games only. Although, if they release it in Sept/Oct with Mario, Metroid, WarioWare, and a MarioParty, then let the 3rd party games trickle in for the holidays, could be interesting.

It's also worth noting, as Morris does, that Nintendo has a history of launching in the September/October timeframe. Although the GameCube didn't go on sale until November, the original NES was released in the U.S. on October 18, 1985 and the Nintendo 64 made its debut on September 29, 1996.
