There are rumors going about the launch of the Wii U being delayed. Looks like the US and Japan will be the first ones to get their hands on the gamepad, but it might not be before December instead of November.
Europe is a whole other story! If the rumors are correct, we here in Europe might have to remove the Wii U from our Christmas wishlist and wait for its launch in early 2013. It could be catastrophic for Europe sales if they’re not able to get the gamepad out before Christmas. All those hundreds of thousands of gift wrapped Wii U’s will be nothing but a lost dream.
The reason for the possible delay is that the gameplay proves to be more difficult to massproduce than first anticipated.
Nintendo has not been willing to comment on the possible delay yet.
