So, the Wii U has been speculated to be released at the earliest after April next year. I think a few companies have commented on release windows themselves. (I think SEGA said Spring/Summer, which would be mid year).
And then there's this: http://www.nintendo..../111028/05.html
Basically, it's a Nintendo financial report. It states that they want to make sure the Wii U is near perfect before launching, and that they want to show the final model at E3 2012.
Well, that sucks... So basically we won't get it until after E3 2012.
