Nintendo denies British tabloid Wii date and price claims

A report in the Daily Star that Wii will launch at the end of November priced around £170 is "pure speculation"

Nintendo UK has denied a report in British tabloid the Daily Star that Nintendo Wii will launch "at the end of November, priced around £170".

"It's pure speculation on the part of the newspaper - we have made no announcements regarding Wii price or software," a spokesperson told our sister site Eurogamer this morning.

The Daily Star report was based on a recent press event for Nintendo Wii hosted in London, where Nintendo showed off a number of the games featured at E3 to lifestyle and newspaper press.

Speculation as to when the Nintendo Wii will launch has been particularly rife recently, although the company has steadfastly stuck to its "Q4" estimate.
