Wii Before PS3

At the Electronics Entertainment Expo 2006 last May in Los Angeles, Sony announced that its forthcoming PlayStation 3 console would debut worldwide on November 17 of this year. The company also revealed the console's two price points. Nintendo, on the other hand, was much vaguer about its new generation Wii console, choosing only to say that it would be less expensive than competitors and would arrive around the globe sometime in the "fourth quarter."

Despite what the Big N has said publicly, publishers and developers have prepping many of their Wii titles for an October release. This in of itself is not proof that Wii will also debut in October, but the data certainly doesn't conflict with the argument.
On top of everything else, this week industry sources have relayed that - in something of a surprise attack -- "Nintendo is planning to launch Wii before PlayStation 3." The latest word jives with publisher release calendars, whose Wii titles are scheduled in many cases for a mid-to-late October debut or, in some cases, very early November.

The story is too old to be commented.

That would be so funny. All those Japanese already said PS3 they find to expensive, so they won't buy it and get a Wii instead. So Nintendo will be big in Japan with launch earlier then Sony, the rest of the world will be for 360 domination then

keep dreaming on xfangirl. the 360 will never be dominant. wait till the launch of the ps3, than you will see that the xbox360 will not sell so good.
