European Wii launch: November 27th?
The Wii may launch after the PS3 in Europe. A photo of a banner inside French supermarket chain Auchan notes the launch date as November 27th.
GoNintendo has the scoop.
I would guess that this rumour could well be true. It´s one thing to post tentative launch dates on a website. But before a supermarket chain, comparable in size to Walmart, prints pre-order banners, you make sure that the date is correct.
Also, Nintendo have never really committed to a simultaneous launch, though they have openly thought about it. So a later launch in Europe could still mean that Wii will launch earlier than PS3 in Japan and North America.
EDIT Interestingly enough, Auchan´s Wii pre-order page only mentions that the console will launch at the end of the year.
