Wii!

Really? Fascinating.

"November 19, 2006" yep that was a Sunday.  

Did they say why they did it on a Sunday?

No idea, but trust me, it was a crazy day that day. Sony was on that Friday if I recall.

Well thank you very much. I do recall going to gamestop for various games releasing on Sunday.  Interesting decisions.

Has Nintendo ever released. No wait let me change that.  Has anyone ever released a console on a sunday?

Go look up Nintendo's hardware launch days of the past. Wiki actually has a good track record of this.

DS, 3DS, Wii and WiiU were all Sunday launches in US.

That's like picking against the Cleveland Browns.

idk... I don't think Ubi had 4+ on launch for Wii or WiiU. Did they?

I think they had at least twice as many announced before Wii launched (Rabbids, Prince of Persia, Far Cry, GT racing game, Monster 4x4 and more trash). Wii U had at least Assassin's Creed, Just Dance, Rabbids and Rayman announced. Yes, Rayman wasn't a launch title, but your bingo didn't specify release at launch, so I am counting announcements.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Biased reviews are a pleasure to read. Just my opinion, of course.

I changed it to be at launch... but you're making me think I should up the 4 to 6 to be a bit more aggresive. 



This thread was supposed to be the main thread haha :(

I predict gamestop will be drowning in pre-owned ps4's.

I'll make people sell them and get a Switch if I have to. I know what's best and that's Nintendo. Anyone else is wrong.

It will be, the day of the event

I do need to come up with a bingo card though... I'm such a procrastinator.
