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.
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.
