Ever so sorry...

Im really sorry there have been no updates over the past week and a half, but school has been hard and so some of the small but interesting news has been passed by.

Wi production rate has been higher than expected. According to UBS 2 million Wii have already been produced and are awaiting release in storage, also they said "at least 7 mln and potentially as high as 9 mln more units are in the build plan for 4Q06." which is a huge contrast to nintendos predictions of 4mln by the end of the year. link

This image released from a American game shops database seemed to point to a earlier release for the Wii, OMG... but it is proberly fake but it does make sense with the apparent abundance of Wii already produced link

And today we have had a press conference in Japan out lining some Wii details including launch titles; link
