A couple of good places to get the details.

Joystiq has a nice run down:

You can view the entire press conference at GameSpot.

I think $60 for an extra controller (including the Nunchuck) is a bit expensive. Especially considering that you only get one controller with the system. The launch title, Wii Sports, begs for a second controller. So, really, you will spend at least $310, plus you will need a memory card (moves the total to $330)... Don't get me wrong, I am still getting one, but it isn't really, "cheap".

I plan on sitting in front of a store at midnight to get gone. I am not a Nintendo fan boy, but I have loved this whole concept since the day I heard of it.

I'm going to hold out on getting the system 'til Super Smash Bros. Brawl is released. Maybe by then it'll have gone down a dollar or two, or I'll be able to find some deals with used systems or on eBay.

I understand the big selling point that it's MUCH cheaper than a 360 or PS3, but it doesn't mean I can afford it. Confused

I will probably get one eventually, but I'm not planning on getting it at launch.
