Fears that Nintendo's Wii might be neglecting hardcore gamers in its bid to reach the mass market have been allayed this morning with the news that EA's Medal of Honor: Airborne may well be parachuting onto Wii in November of this very year - at least over in the US.
How do we know? Well Medal of Honor: Airborne has just been listed by US online retailer EB Games with a launch date of November 1, this year.
Perhaps even more significantly, it's been given a retail price of $49 which seems a fairly decent indication of what premium Wii games might cost you over in the good ol' US of A.
Of course prices and release dates are subject to change, especially in the heady world of online retail, but at least the listing gives a first indication of what we might have to cough up for Premium Wii titles - fifty bucks, which roughly equates to around 26.71 of our great British poundies. It looks like we're going to be getting some pretty decent value out of Nintendo on game prices.
Still financial considerations asides, it's the prospects of using the Wiimote and Nunchuck controllers in Airborne which have us most excited. Will be able to use them to steer our parachutes in some intriguing dropzone action? The running and gunning should certainly be a unique next-gen experience compared to PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Airborne.
The possibilities seem endless and perhaps you have few suggestions of your own to make in the comments below. Either way, we look forward to spraying some more Airborne Wii your way soon.
