Kotaku reported earlier
that during a GameStop manager's conference, a PDP representative slipped up and mentioned a November 18th release date for the Wii U. The report failed to mention whether or not said representative is still employed, but did add that the rep quicky changed the subject once it was realized what had been said.
PDP and Nintendo have refused to confirm or deny any planned release date for the console.
Following the Wii U's original announcement, it has been recognized for its unique "GamePad"
controller and built-in controller screen. It was also announced that the Wii U won't be compatible with DVD's or Blu-Rays.
