One word to MonkeyMike--That is a Sony problem, not a Nintendo problem. Nintendo hardware never has noticeable defects, and very rarely (only once I believe) have they missed the projected launch window of a new console. I'd say it's going to launch for $199, as that number sounds like magic. $149 would be awesome, but just the number of 1-9-9 sounds more appealing in some way for me than 1-4-9. Either one would be a great price, though, and I'm going to hazard a guess that it will come bundled with Wii Sports. I think they once said that they would have 15-20 games at launch--at last year's E3 or something?
