Rumours have a habit of spreading like wildfire, and the most recent Wii Urelease date rumour is no exception. PDP allegedly leaked the release date during a GameStop managers' conference, but recent updates show it was a misunderstanding.
Gaming accessory maker PDP apparently leaked the North American release date for the Wii U during a GameStop managers' conference, where they were detailing upcoming products.
This morning reports came through fromKotaku that the November 18 release date 'was all a misunderstanding," according to PDP's senior vice president of sales and marketing, William Otte.
PDP community manager Candace Hinton said "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.," while Nintendo simply stated, "we have nothing to announce at this time."
There is a possibility the release date is November 18, and this is simply a cover up, so Nintendo can officially announce the Wii U release date at their event in New York - if of course that is what Nintendo are announcing.
At this time however, there is not much to say about the release date, except that is was just another rumour that may or may not hold any weight of truth.
