Nintendo has yet to announce a release schedule for its Wii console more specific than the fourth quarter time frame disclosed at E3, but CNN Money has some juicy insider info that suggests Nintendo may beat Sony's PlayStation 3 to the punch. Industry sources told CNN they expect the Wii to launch in September or October, whereas Sony won't roll out the PlayStation 3 until November 11 in Japan and November 17 in the U.S. and Europe. Sony, meanwhile, has yet to kick off production of final PlayStation 3s, according to CNN.
Also, American Technology Research Analyst P.J. McNealy stated two weeks ago that final retail Wii units were already rolling off Nintendo's assembly lines. McNealy believes October is a "reasonable timeframe" for Wii's launch.
