Wii before November?

It's common practice to release a shiny new gaming console as close to December as possible, but Wii could possibly be coming as soon as September if industry talk is to be believed.An article onCNNMoney.com says an analyst's notes suggest Wii hardware is most likely alreadyin production and could arrive well before the PlayStation 3's November 17 release date.

If this is true, the drought of product that plagued the Xbox 360 last season (and could affect the PS3 this year) might be avoided entirely. The CNN article also says other industry insiders are expecting a Wii launch in the September-October area.
