Wii to Hit Australia and Europe This December

Following the North American and Japanese launch dates, Nintendo announced that Australia will be getting the console on December 7, with Europe being last (but not least?) on December 8.

Aussie’s down under will be able to enjoy the console for $400 AU, which will get them the console, one wireless Wii Remote controller, one Nunchuk controller and Wii Sports. Europeans will have to cough up 249 Euros (£179 in the UK) for the same package.

The company also revealed that first party games for the console will retail between 50 and 60 Euros (£35 to £40 in the UK), though no rates for third party games were revealed. Rates for the different controllers were also disclosed for Europe: Wii Remote – 39 Euros (£29 in UK), Nunchuk – 19 Euros (£14 in UK) and the Classic Controller – 19 Euros (£14 in UK).
