Rumoured Wii U Release Date Denied

After news spread that Nintendo were set to release the Wii U on November due to GameStop releasing a date for their Wii U accessories, a PDP manager was quick to deny 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.”

“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.”

This comes with the news that the release date was announced due to Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two having it’s accessories for PS3, Xbox and Wii come out on the same day;

“During PDP’s presentation of our fall line of gaming accessories to customers at a trade event, we stated that our Wii U accessories would be available at launch. Much later in the presentation we showed our Epic Mickey 2: The Power of 2 accessories for the Wii and confirmed that the Wii accessories will be in stores by the game’s November 18 launch date. Connecting the Wii U launch and Epic Mickey 2 peripheral launch dates is inaccurate and false. PDP has no knowledge whether this is the official Wii U release date or not.”

So what do you think about this news? Do you still think the date of November 18th sounds correct or are not getting your hopes up, due to Nintendo holding a press conference on September 13th, when a Wii U date and price is expected to be announced. Comment on these matters below.
