It's only available at Tractor Supply though for the first week. Exclusive deal.

No one knows yet.
I was under the impression it would be this winter, but nothing's been confirmed. Surely the full details will be announced at their E3 press conference tomorrow (Tues) at 12pm PST.

I remember hearing that Nintendo will announce the release date and price after E3 or something like that.

It's possible, but since they basically leaked the finished controller and the "pro" pad at the PRE-E3 presser last night, I doubt they're going to hold the launch details for much longer.....I also don't think they can really afford to anyway, I think at this point people want the info especially since the few scraps got unveiled last night. :)

They COULD hold the info....I just don't think they will. ;)
I'm surprised they didn't do a 'preemptive strike' and unveil that last night; would have really taken the wind out of MS and Sony's sails before they had a chance to do anything.

I am going to guess November 18 for the USA release, based on the Gamecube and Wii release dates. Early adopters will get their families talking about it during the Thanksgiving holiday, leading to a supply shortage through the holiday season. If it launched much later, it would miss out on some holiday sales, and if it launched much earlier some of the hype will have died before the holiday shopping season.

From what Nintendo has said at E3 , before the end of the year holiday rush. So that would translate into November-December time frame. I think they need to delay it into 2013 and just polish up their launch titles , but it doesn't look like that's going to happen.
