The Wii U's November 18th release date has been denied by Performance Designed Products, the gaming accessory maker who allegedly leaked it

 

PDP apparently inadvertantly leaked the Wii U's November 18th release date at a GameStop managers' conference, where they were unveiling some upcoming products. Gaming website Kotaku published a report that PDP confrirmed the product line-up would be released 'just ahead of the Wii U's November 18 release'.

According to Kotaku, PDP swiftly moved to stop the rumours, releasing a statement, saying their comments had been misunderstood. 

"Performance Designed Products ("PDP") is aware of the recent rumors posted alleging that PDP inadvertently 'leaked' the official release date of the upcoming Nintendo Wii U gaming system during a trade presentation earlier today," said William Otte, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing of PDP.

"To be clear, PDP has no knowledge whatsoever of the official Wii U release date, and thus it is not possible for PDP to have 'leaked' this information. PDP simply gave a presentation of our fall line of gaming accessories to our customers at a trade event in which we stated that our Wii U accessories would be there at launch. Later in the presentation, we stated that our Epic Mickey II accessories are currently planned to be in stores by November 18. PDP has no knowledge as to whether this is the official Wii U release date or not, and thus nothing was 'leaked'."

The Nintendo Wii U is expected to be released in time for Christmas this year. A few days ago Nintendo sent out invites to a press event in Now York City on September 13, where the firm is expected to announce the console's release date.
