Nintendo Wii launched in United States
A 1000 people remained camped near Times Square in New York for three days to be the first ones to get their hand on the new Nintendo Wii Gaming Console which features a revolutionary new controlling system : a single handed controller, which will be wielded like a sword to play the multitude of games on the platform. Although the sales arent expected to beat those of Arch rival Sony’s Playstation 3 , what is expected is that more and more ‘loyal’ nintendo fans will want to get their hands on this new piece of hardware. Most fans were excited about playing the game ‘Zelda’ on their new Wii systems. Many were dressed up as popular Nintendo characters also while waiting in the queue.
The Wii will have its australian debut on 7th December this year.
