GBP 179 Wii set to arrive on December 8th

Some 15-20 titles will be available at launch, each priced at GBP 35-40.

The news was announced at a glitzy conference at the ExceL venue in Docklands, London, attended by almost 7,000 press, retailers and publishers from across Europe.

The event was introduced by TV presenter Gaby Logan and included a demonstration of Wii tennis by Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski.

However, the highlight of the event – aside from the news of the launch details – was the surprise appearance of Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata. His attendance surely underlines the importance of Europe to the Japanese games giant – particularly in light of the fact that he didn’t take part in the US conference.
