New Rumors Speculate Earlier Wii U Release Date

Previously, Wii U leaks lead us to believe that the new console would hit store shelves on Sunday, November 18. But with new information from the Video Product Distributors website suggest the WiiU will be available a week sooner on November 11.

The stock-keeping units were listed as follows:
WIIU SYSTEM – GM – 11/11/12 $249.99
WIIU SYSTEM W/ – GM – 11/11/12 $299.99
WIIU SYSTEM 349 W/ – GM – 11/11/12 $349.99

The reason behind the price differences remains unclear, but WiiU game and controller bundles make for a reasonable guess.

This leak appears more legitimate because VPD distributes to companies like Amazon, Blockbuster, and Overstock. The new date also follows Nintendo tradition of releasing on a Sunday in November much like they did for the original Wii and Gamecube.
