GameStop Conference Leaks 18th November Date For Wii U Accessories

News has leaked from a GameStop conference that the popular retail outlet will be selling accessories for Wii U on November 18th. Although it’s not uncommon for peripherals for a console to launch early, it should be noted that the 18th of November is a Sunday. We should hopefully hear launch information and pricing for Wii U on September 13th.

  1. would be smarter to come out end of October in time for Tekken, Assassins Creed and Black Ops. Wii U might sell out on first shipment, so 2nd shipment would come intime for Black Friday. plus Burger King may be getting WiiU toys in October

  2. it’s also not uncommon for accessories to come out after the actual console does. but yeah, i think november 18th would be a very good release date.

      1. Yeah, because underclocked dev kits are really going to use 3 Wii cores and not an entirely different processor. That makes plenty of sense? Oh wait, no it doesn’t. That is completely stupid and the “underclocked” dev kit excuse is now old and tiring. There is no mention of “underclocked” dev kit here at all. You’re trying to grasp at straws.

        Wii uses an IBM PowerPC processor, Wii U is using 3 of those cores with slightly more cache memory and clock speed. Guess what? PowerPC is 15 years old.

        Wii U is not even current gen specs, it is LAST GEN specs.

        You can put forth any type of damaging controlling post pertaining to the specs, I will crush it. If you wish to participate in a debate that will ultimately embarrass yourself, go right ahead. I’m not pulling punches anymore. I’m going to tell it as it is, and back all of it up.

          also the wiiu looks set to have 1.5gb RAM and 32mb Edram .
          that is 3-4 times as much as the 360 . and 6 times as much as the ps3.
          the proesser is power7. that isnt 15 years old , is you tard ???
          gtfo . you are just ridiculous.
          the wiiu is NEXT GEN . it can dual render better graphics than the 360 and ps3 on 2 screens at the same time. how is that so god damn hard for you to understand ????
          just go away and stop embarasing yourself.
          also the GAMEPAD TABLET STYLE CONTROLLER. is very futuristic and a totaly new concept. never before seen on any old shitty console.

          1. 1: Nobody is talking about graphics here. And Sega said “maybe a little better” as if they’re unsure. So that’s one bullshit (and irrelevant) counterargument down.
            2: Okay, so why does this matter? 1.5GB isn’t decent by any gaming standard today. Congratulations, they have slightly more ram than 6-7 year old consoles. Give yourself a pat on the back for such a difficult achievement.
            3: There is absolutely no proof that the processor is POWER7. In fact, it’s right in your face in this link. The processor is PowerPC, and that is 15 years old.

          1. Actually people do. Just like the same folks who completely leaked the Wii prior to launch. You act as if everything is a total mystery, but not anymore pal. The industry will always have leaks and there is nothing you could say to prove otherwise.

            The Wii U is a lot like early Wii rumors made up by fanboys, claiming it would be as powerful as a 360, and look how that turned out? Total rubbish.

            You guys can’t even grasp basic logic of this. Nintendo WILL go the cheap route.

            Form an argument using the price of components that would lead to a “more powerful machine” that doesn’t go over the speculated price point of $350.

            A decent GPU by today’s standards is already $150-200, more than half the price of this console’s manufacturing costs.
            1.5GB RAM *specifically console RAM* would be about $10-20.
            A decent CPU would be $100.
            The console is obviously using a Blu-ray drive without licenses to play the movies, so that’s about $50-70.
            Then there’s the wireless chip.
            Then there’s the controller, I’d imagine at MINIMUM would be $30-50.
            Then they even have to pay for raw materials, manufacturing costs, shipping, all sorts of taxes.

            That’s going to be a $300-350 console that can wipe the floor with the current machines to you? LOLNOPE.

            Are you stupid? This console is not going to be demonstrating power over the 360/PS3 the RAM will make games look *slightly* better.

            Sorry to say, Wii U is a double overclocked Wii, which is an overclocked Gamecube.

          Anyone can make up a spread sheet of statistics and dole it out then call it legit when the system and its makers have released so very little about it.

          That’s all you do.
          You’re not a credible source, and neither are your old “reports”.
          But please, do go ahead and try to justify how your hater logic makes the Wii U a system no one wants.
          Justify it until you’re blue in the face and red in the ass.
          We will all simply sit back and laugh at how much fun you’re going to be missing out on simply because you chose to be a hater rather than an open-minded gamer.
          A hater who thinks absolutely everything made by Nintendo sucks simply because it’s Nintendo, then comes on here to waste his pathetic life trolling people who pity him and are going to go against his demands anyways.
          You’re not winning anyone over to your side.
          You’re not discouraging anyone.
          And you certainly aren’t going to make any of us go back on our decision to get a Wii U.
          After all, it’s the one system out there that is GUARANTEED to NEVER have YOU, and other haters like you, in its official community.
          If anything, your trolling is just pushing us further into the decision to get the system, because it gives us a network to play games without people like you annoying the living fuck out of us like you try to do here.

                  jerk off. it is widely known now that the wiiu can produce significantly better visuals than the previous gen . fifa 13 for 360 and ps3 is trying to max out the graphics of those consoles , until the framerate no longer runs properly.
                  fifa developer matt prior confirmed for the wiiu version he was able to double the resoloution of the crowd so they dont look shitty and add ‘infinite detail’ to the pitch .

              1. The PSP has 64mb of ram, do tell me how that’s “4 times the amount”.

                “It looks horrendous compared to the 3DS”.

                It’s funny how God of War looks better than nearly the entire 3DS library then.

                Also, why do you insist on bragging about “new” hardware beating old hardware? We all know Nintendo has not made a “powerful” device since the Gamecube, and even that wasn’t the most powerful thing on the market back then.

                Let’s talk about the Vita specs against the 3DS specs…oh right, it’s a curb stomping in every possible aspect…my bad.

                1. the psp works with 32 mb of ram. the updated psp’s were given 64mb of ram to stop the framerate being so shitty.
                  also i will tell you what is a ‘curb stomping’ the 3ds compared to the vita. the 3ds is a massive success. and the vita is one of the biggest fails so far in console history . the 3ds has tons of great games. the ps vita has 1 , some ports , and some shit games.

                  gtfo . you know nothing about video gaming at all .

                  god of war looks better than what ???? go and play kid icarus and resi rev you stupid prick. they look about 3-4 times better than than the psp . and they are 3d .
                  and have better framerates , etc etc.
                  the psp does not compare to the 3ds. it looks like a horrible version of the ps2. about 80% of the ps2’s graphics. the 3ds is like a 3d xbox 1 or wii .
                  its a lot more powerfull.

                  resi rev is comparable to vita graphics.

                    1. Y U mad Amir? Resident Evil: Revelations is the best looking game for a handheld console. Most of the 3DS games are at around 2GB. But when Capcom develops RE: R, they doubled it to 4GB. Now that’s as maximum it can get. You’re whining right becasuse your PS Vita have already sunk to a whole new low.

          1. Like I said before. Cost argument. I’ll be right at the end of the day so it doesn’t matter what you try to pull up.

            Nintendo is taking no losses on hardware and this is speculated to be launched at $300-350. There is absolutely no logical way that the console is going to be doing anything significantly better than what’s on the market now. In fact they will be negligible.

            Wii U to the 360 will probably be what Wii was to the original Xbox, inferior in CPU, but slightly better in GPU. That’s the most realistic scenario.

            Like

            1. “cost arguement”

              Shut up you mong. You already said the ps3 was pricey solely because of the blu-ray, they wouldnt of taken a loss on it if it just had an optical drive and 25GB disks. “But the cost”. WiiU is a pure gaming console. No DVD, no Blu-ray, no other crap attached to it, then theres no HDD, its not got a Cell processor so that’ll keep the cost down. Its literally, a GPU, a CPU, optical drive, and some fans. Thats going to save a pretty penny. And besides, do you work at Nintendo? No? The how do you KNOW that Nintendo wont sell it at a loss?

              You’re feeding on lies and bullshit, shitting them out, and feeding on them again. Nothing you say is credible, its just twisted rumours, that you lace with inconsitant “facts” and link to current but mostly dated and outed RUMOURS.

              Like

              1. Sony lost hundreds on the PS3, I think the manufacturing costs alone were $1000. And yes, that was blu-ray. Which has since deteriorated in price, but you’re too stupid to figure that out.

                No blu-ray? That is definitely a Blu-ray drive, they will very likely reverse engineer the discs and write them differently just like they did with the Wii discs, which were basically DVD discs. There’s a reason why homebrew can enable DVD playback on Wii’s without the need for physical mods.

                The rest is just a load of junk that you’re trying to obscure the truth with. MS also lost quite the amount of money on 360s at launch as well. The 360 itself was on par with modern gaming GPUs. The Xenos is based on Radeon X1800/1900, which back then was among the best cards.

And the bluraycost goingdownmeans nothing, it was in the ps3, it made it pricey, its “apparently” in the WiiU but its cheap now, so the WiiU production is still cheaper. Everythingelse is not junk, its the barebone facts.

                  And 360 was outdatedprobably half a year after it was released, like all consoles conparedto PC’s. And fair enoughonthe link, but a $300-350 consoleis still a pretty heftyprice,if it is the price,bucount in all the money saved from the production, and even the link you posted about the CPU, if it does the job, and it goingto bethat cheap to produce, then more koney saved.

                  But i still think you havent got something into your head. REALpeople, DO. NO. CARE. ABOUTGRAPHICS. Its a gimmick.oh, this game looks nice, yeah but it plays like shit. Imbuying a WiiU forits software, bot forits specs

                  1. The problem with your argument, is that you try to speak for the core market. Trust me, the core market -does- care about seeing leaps in console performance. The Wii offered little magical gameplay in the end, and ultimately the better software is on the other consoles, only a crazy person will deny that.

                    I buy new consoles that can show me they’ll last without gathering dust under my bed about a year orso later. Nintendo is doing the exact same mistake that unfortunately you posters will buy into a second time.

      Im not buying a WiiU for specs, i look at the software and think, “why would i want to miss out on that?”. I look at the controller and think, “my mind explodes from the ideas of ways that can be used in a game”.

      Software is more important than the hardware. Just look at the 3DS, its DESTROYING the Vita. The Vita is more powerful, no doubt. Its probably got some good online features to as well as the cross play. But its games suck, and it has maybe 2 worth while titles.

I’m mainly a Nintendo fan, but I had a decent library of PS1 and PS2 games, including Sly, Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter etc. I intend to get a PS3 some time after the Wii U too, but I can genuinely say that nothing on the Vita interests me. I’ve never been one for CoD, as for LBP, I get my 2D Platforming from Mario. I couldn’t get into AC after the first very dull one, and nothing else appeals much either. Admittedly I’ve never tried Uncharted though.
