Nintendo Encodes Wii Launch Date?
It's time to put those cryptology skills you learned from The Da Vinci Code to work.
by Daemon Hatfield and Matt Casamassina (

July 25, 2006 - A mysterious press release from Nintendo ( today teases that a message detailing the Wii launch date may be hidden within its text. Now, as the release says, it may all be a rouse to get us to read about Nintendo's other games, but we just can't help ourselves.

The release reads: "Perhaps the secret to the launch information for Wii is somehow encoded in the text of this news item. You might want to pore over it for a few hours before staying up all night to debate phraseology and comma placement with your friends online."

Take a look for yourself and see if you can decode anything from it. What we can tell after a good thirty seconds or so of scrutiny is that a game is releasing every Monday except October 2, November 20, and November 27. Nintendo ( has hinted that the Wii would launch sooner than later, so that points to... October 2nd?

Separate rumors have suggested that Nintendo could be planning to launch Wii directly after the Tokyo Game Show, which takes place in late September.

Of course, none of this is confirmed, but that shouldn't stop you from speculating.

Let us know the results of your efforts ( Good luck.

This is dumb, just tell eveyone the release date so word can get out and build up hype. Nintendo is always hiding stuff for such a long time, so long that by the time its released everyones left *meh*

Remember the hidden message in the Kojima postcards, it was supposed to be this über cool game coming, or not. But hey, people love hype, so lets hype!
