It better come before December, otherwise there will be a lot of disappointed gamers who did get console in time. There better be no shortage of consoles too. Nintendo should not want to repeat Wii story again when not enough demands were satisfied
Dutch shop Two Tribes projects Nintendo's upcoming high-definition console to launch during same month as Wii in 2006.
The Wii U will "probably" [sic] be on store shelves this November, Toki Tori 2 developer Two Tribes told GameSpot on Twitter recently. The Dutch developer did not say if this was a North American or international release projection.
Nintendo has not announced a specific release date for the Wii U, but the company said in January the console would arrive worldwide this holiday season. Last week, a listing on Amazon Germany indicated the Wii U would be on shelves on December 21.
If the Wii U does arrive in November, it will do so during the same month as the Wii did more than a half-decade ago. That system hit North America in November of 2006 and saw release in Europe a month later.
Two Tribes is currently at work on Toki Tori 2 for the Wii U. It is a sequel to 2008's WiiWare adaptation of the 2001 Game Boy Color platformer Toki Tori. A puzzle platformer, the game is also due out for the PC and Mac with a level editor.
"Dutch shop Two Tribes projects Nintendo's upcoming high-definition console to launch during same month as Wii in 2006." Stuff the Wii U, I want to play with Nintendo's time machine that will allow them to release it in the same month as Wii in 2006 :P
even at 99$ price point i would not be interested, now if it came bundled with an HD epic zelda game i would pay 199$ for it. that is all
So this article says that a developer makes a prediction that already matches the assumption that everyone is already making about the Wii U's launch date. Why is this news?
I'm really not trying to be rude to Mr. Makuch or anyone else at Gamespot--I'm just really curious. Anyone?
they should wait until April 22nd(Earth Day), so people can recycle this paper weight, once they see no value in it XD
If at least they used a capacitive touch screen I would think in get one besides the sequence of bad news about it.
It is the usual release window for new consoles. You want people to write about how well your console sold, the best way to do that it to release in the holiday period when people have the money and are in the right ''spirit''.
We can also be sure that Nintendo will try to launch this year, one more year and the new Xbox and PS are announced and its specs might make people decide to wait a little longer. So put those two together and you can make an educated guess.
The sad thing is, most analysts can't be bothered to do even that. They'd much rather cry out nonsense as that draws more attention to them.
I think I'll just ignore this article about when the launch is, along with the other hundred articles, and just wait for Nintendo to tell us.
Eddie, are you feeling ok? What about Michael Pachter's opinion? We need to hear is eighth prediction on the consoles.
Why did the Wii suck? because it took games from the game boy, is there a more bottom of the barrel place to scrape?
@fadersdream The Game Boy line is one of the most revered set of console lines ever, in large part because it has an enormous library of fantastic games. One of Nintendo's flagship franchises even started there before appearing on home consoles.
I think November would be the sweet spot. Making it in the right time to the lists of possible christmass presents.
Good idea to release it in November instead of December, gives kids time to bug their parents in getting them one for christmas.
