Wii U Has a Release Date?!
-Eric Lee Lewis
According to a representative of PDP at the GameStop Managers’ Conference, the Wii U will make its way to store shelves on November 18th. This information was not meant to hit the public quite yet and was obviously a mistake.
On September at a meeting in New York is presumably when we were going to get the official price and release date.
According to people watching the conference as soon as the presenter realized what they had said, they changed the subject in an extremely quick manner.
Candace Hinton (PDP Manager) said this when asked about the release date: “at this time we can’t confirm Nintendo’s dates and we don’t know exactly what was heard, but we simply do not know that this point. We are launching accessories, but the date for the accessories doesn’t mean a confirmation on the hardware. If you seek confirmation on the date that is something that is going to need to go specifically though Nintendo, but we can’t confirm or deny dates on any of their hardware.”
When a Nintendo representative was asked this simple answer was given: “We have nothing to announce at this time.”
