Wii Prepares For Launch
Posted by Anthony Dickens
Nintendo state that its production facility in North Bend is working around the clock to get shipments ready.
Along with the news, Nintendo have issued us with some photos from inside the warehouse, just to make us drool even more. There's a pretty snazy shot taken of copies of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess making their way down a conveyor belt at the production facility in North Bend, Washington, USA.
"Workers at Nintendo’s production facility in North Bend, Wash., prepare thousands of boxes of Wii, the company’s new video game console, for shipment to retailers across the country. Wii goes on sale in the United States on Nov. 19, and is shaping up to be the ''gotta have it'' gift of the holiday season. Nintendo is mobilizing the largest worldwide console launch in a decade for Wii."
It's interesting to see the games, as it confirms that the games will ship in WHITE plastic DVD cases, nifty. Also, check out the huge "Do not sell before 11/19" stickers plastered all over the boxes.
This is officially the first time I've ever wanted to work in a warehouse. I wonder how much those workers are earning from the smuggling of Wii consoles outta the back door. Not long now kids.
