+ 27 games playable and a couple are practically completed already
+ nintendo can keep a secret and always have some pretty bizzare marketing tactics
+ the wii development kit is reportedly almost identical to the gamecube one, so games can be ported, sequalised* or even developed from scratch much faster than for the release of any console over the last few and current generations
- nintendo themselves have said the release will be dictated by the availibilty of resources
- nintendo refuses to say a price or date
- we still don't know what specs the wii actually is. does this mean niether does nintendo?
- ten quid to anyone who can name a nintendo product that was released on time!
