Nintendo to launch November 6
Nintendo, which is bravely continuing to fight a videogame-console war against both Microsoft and Sony, still has a hardcore group of fans who watch its every move and are hotly anticipating the new Nintendo Wii. So when Sports Illustrated for Kids (owned, like CNNMoney.com, by Time Warner) printed a firm launch date of November 6, the fans went wild. Gaming news site Cubed3 had previously reported the same launch date, and tales of a drunken Nintendo sales rep who let word slip of an early-November U.S. debut had circulated around the Net, but seeing the date in print struck many as more convincing. A November 6 launch for the Wii would let Nintendo steal some of Sony's thunder, since Sony's new PlayStation 3 console is scheduled to launch 11 days later.
