Wii U Release Date Delayed To December Across Europe?

Sources close to online publication CVG suggest that the Wii U release date has been delayed to December across Europe. The source claims that manufacturing issues for the Wii U GamePad are the cause of the delay. Nintendo has yet to announce pricing or a release date for the console, only saying that it will be released this Holiday season.

      1. The casuals are never the first to buy, so I’m pretty sure everybody who wanted to get a Wii, was able to do so.

          1. Well seeing as im pre-ordering one, it doesnt matter, id get one anyway. Dont display an actual resonable point, and have a real discussion in one article and go back to being a fanboy douche in the next. At least be consitant, you jus look like a twat

            1. I actually said a good thing. the WiiU will sell out… surely that is good for Nintendo? or do you want me to say NOONE but casuals will buy one? :P

              1. You would think Nintendo would learn their lesson from how fast the Wii sold out. I’m sure they’re expecting the Wii U to sell fast as well, and as such are preparing plenty of units for launch.

            2. Delayed is an interesting take. The Wii launched in December 2006 in Europe after a November launch in the USA.

              I’ve always expected the same pattern for Wii U.

                      1. You’re right, actually America is a continent, and gamer comment is actually weird, since the U.S. was forged by the British colonies that arrived from Europe

                      2. Hmm, thats funny because Europe is the name of joined nations, not a country. Plus Australia wouldn’t have been a country if it wasn’t thanks to the English for sending their criminals there

                        1. Yes it would have, moron, aboriginal people still lived there and even if they didn’t it would still have been a country. It’s not like english people built the country

                          1. He has a point, your country did economicly benefit from British immigrants and trading. Britian pretty much shaped modern society, include the 4 biggest countries, Britian (obviously), America, Australia and India.

                                  1. Guys Guys..Relax!
                                    this is a nintendo forum, no need to be harsh to each other. we’re all brothers, different nationalities and creeds.
                                    im an american myself, but i F*cking LOVE
                                    Europe <3
                                    Nice Day To Ya'll

                                        1. USA is usually referred to as America, hence its name. But calling Europe a country? Some of these fxcking kids need to put the Nintendo away, seriously…

                                        2. WHAT THE FUCK!?

                                          I was actually happy picking up my Wii U at the same time as everybody else in the world so I could explore it and learn everything about it on my own to avoid spoilers, guess that won’t be happening. (And FYI, I am a news-person so I can’t really avoid anything on the internet so that I don’t get spoiled)

                                                  1. Not really a delay if they haven’t announced yet, and things like this are why they haven’t announced. As long as its on track for this year I’m happy!

                                                  2. delayed ? why cant they cancell the bloody thing .. looks fucking shit and its current gen .., who the fuck wants that ?? this console is a joke …

                                                          1. Its easy, first jump unto a Dumpster full of aids needles From the top of the Eiffel Tower while Voguing as you fall.

                                                            that’s only way to become a trolling moron of his caliber.

                                                            1. Ah, but when my hands touch the console it turns into a solid golden statue of me that lets me play future games that you haven’t even seen yet.

                                                                1. what make it not a next gen console? the fact that it isnt over powered, but instead statigically made so its affordable with still impvroved graphical power and a new was of control?

                                                                1. Please reconsider your plans, remember that you can play Pandoras Tower, which won’t be coming to this part of the world

                                                                    1. Copying what you deluded drone. By the way how your 10th 360 going, has it broke yet? They usually do when you turn them on.

                                                                                  1. Davin (aka Platinum Lucario)

                                                                                    Aw c’mon, every reliable source NEVER even said that Nintendo were releasing it earlier than “this Holiday season”, the “Holiday season” is an American term meaning “from Thanksgiving to New Years Day”. Thing is, I live in Australia, but I doubt the Wii U will see a launch in Australia until January 2013. It’s likely to be released in December this year for the US though.

                                                                                    1. Looks like we have a racist troll on here. I’m Black and a lot of people have told me that I’m very smart. By your mindless behind saying that “America is full of black stupid idiots”, you don’t know jack shit, *in Ice Cube’s voice* BIATCH!

                                                                                        1. I was being sarcastic of the spelling of the word “bitch”, dumbass. You were stupid for quoting that racist BS anyway.

                                                                                              1. why?Are you christian wich that religion is made by the Israelite people so they can brainwashed us and destroys us by their massonic religion?
                                                                                                christianity=Freemasonry

                                                                                                good try Eurean

Same with the illuminati. But if you choose not to belive im not gonna hold a gun to your head. Unlike some christians i respect all humans (except aeolus and seigfried). And all religions and ethnicity.

                                                                                                        1. But christians in the “Dark Ages” did not respect the other religions so suck it! free massoner

                                                                                                            1. dude whats your problem. Thats not right to say. Looks like i know where siegfried is going after….

                                                                                                              1. +1 to you good sir.

                                                                                                                My ex-girlfriend was Black and American and she was pretty smart. I’d say don’t listen to him, he’s just looking for attention.

                                                                                                              2. +1 to you good sir.

                                                                                                                My ex-girlfriend was Black and American and she was pretty smart. I’d say don’t listen to him, he’s just looking for attention.

                                                                                                            2. U must be talking about the ones who sit up under tanning lights to blacking their skin right? Just Stupid!! Grow up Son

                                                                                                            3. Nintendo: So amazing, they can delay a console that doesn’t even have a release date yet.

                                                                                                              Now you’re playing with the concept of logic.

                                                                                                                1. You mean how its equally funny about how you don’t see the sarcasm and the joke?

                                                                                                                  But I guess you have to be of average intelligence to do those things.

                                                                                                                          1. Ness you make such a fucking mess, if you hate nintendo so much, WHY are you on a nintendo SITE?! It doesnt make sense. THATS IT! LETS GO TO SHITSTATION AND PUSSYSOFT websites and spam there. THEN they will understand.

                                                                                                                            They come on nintendo blogs just to spam. Get a fucking job, stop living in the basement. Wait till someone flags your ip, then you wont be allowed here. Have fun sucking cock for a living ness

                                                                                                                            1. butthurt nintenfag ?? lol as if i give a shit , nintendo is the worst game company ever , by ur comment i can tell ur a 4ever virgin …WHY IS NINTENDO SO DAMN RETARDED .??

                                                                                                                                      2. I would love to see the facs you have backing up your comment, “the wii u will be a disaster !!” You probably have none though…

                                                                                                                                    1. Although it’s a dissapointment for more waiting, it’s better to have a finished product than to end up having Nintendo recalling all the faulty GamePads.

                                                                                                                                                        1. you cunt, pussysoft cant buy nintendo, unlike pussysoft, nintendo doesnt need to copy people. pussysoft copied nintendo TWICE.

                                                                                                                                                          1. they copied the wii u with xbox shitglass
                                                                                                                                                          2. the gamecube with their xbox shittyremote.

                                                                                                                                                          so stfu siegfried get better reasons to blame nintendo, if there is any.

                                                                                                                                                          1. Now you say that “Black people are gangsters”? Slow your role, pal. If anyone YOU’RE being disgusted by is nobody but yourself due to your racist actions.

                                                                                                                                                            1. How the fuck is it delayed if the release date isnt revealed o_O

                                                                                                                                                              If North America gets a delay i will be pissed off, im tired of waiting, just fucking let me get it already. Im gonna eventually stop getting hyped and just get wii games instead.

                                                                                                                                                              1. and just so you guys understood what i said, i got the wii early 2012, so i dont have much games for the wii. Now im saving up for wii u, but if they keep the hype going like this, i aint getting it. Im honestly getting tired of all this hype, seriously just tell me the info already. I was expecting a lot of nintendo from e3 2012,, but im seriously on the edge of just wasting those $200 i saved on mario kart wii +games

                                                                                                                                                            2. @Philomatic “looks Where gonna have to reply twitter style. @ jake on”

                                                                                                                                                              WHAT!? What did i do wrong NOW!? im defending us nintendo fans. :(

                                                                                                                                                            3. Hope this won’t be like the months before Brawl came out:
                                                                                                                                                              ‘It’ll be out in March!..

I know so many NICE and INTELLIGENT black people. There are so many nice people out there, why are you so fucking retarded. If you wanna be raciest, say that to your neighbor and watch you get jack in the face you dumb shit.

                                                                                                                                                              siegfried you are such a dumbass that you wont even be happy. You spam for a living, wow, now i know why you dont have a giftfriend, if you get married, i’d be surprised, because you wouldnt get anything from a girl, even if you paid her

                                                                                                                                                            8. @ness blackshitendo is retarded because they dont make serius games,they just make games for girls and not for true gamers and even shitendo 64 had the worst and babyish games i ever seen then but i was sticked with my psx

                                                                                                                                                            9. @KT “Looks like we have a racist troll on here. I’m Black and a lot of people have told me that I’m very smart. By your mindless behind saying that “America is full of black stupid idiots”, you don’t know jack shit, *in Ice Cube’s voice* BIATCH!”

                                                                                                                                                              Im not black, but i KNOW there are so many smart black people, and i dont get why he is raciest. Im asian, and im a teen, but im smart enough not to be mean and DEFINATELY not to hate, I guess siegfried hates a lot, cant wait to see his racism backfire.

                                                                                                                                                            10. “@ness blackshitendo is retarded because they dont make serius games,they just make games for girls and not for true gamers and even shitendo 64 had the worst and babyish games i ever seen then but i was sticked with my psx” written from siegfried

                                                                                                                                                              First, get some fucking grammar lessons, you uneducated idiot.
                                                                                                                                                              Second, what games did shitstation make? A COPY OF SMASH BROS. And they barely make games, they get 3rd party support, so nintendo is the one that makes the creativity. TRUE GAMERS dont hate on anyone or ANY gamesystem. You are a raciest son of a bitch. Get a fucking life, “wow look at me, i spam for a living” really, get a job. Your a nobody and make something of yourself.

                                                                                                                                                                1. I’m laughing so hard at the irony of you telling people to learn ‘true english’ when not a single comment you’ve written on the site has ‘true english’. You even spelt England wrong in this comment

                                                                                                                                                                      1. Jesus H Christ…and I thought Gamefaqs was bad!

                                                                                                                                                                        People – please be kind to Ness and siegfried. It is quite obvious that they suffer some sort of brain damage that causes them to lash out at innocent posters via poorly constructed and often unitelligable posts. Can’t you guys see that their mothers were callous enough to consume copious amounts of alcohol and drugs when they were pregnant with them – thus causing the aforementioned brain damage? In actual truth, they love Nintendo…but they simply cannot communicate in a loving manner; as ranting, cursing and babbling is they only form of speech that they know how to convey (albeit in a manner befitting of a crazed, drooling hobo).

                                                                                                                                                                        Hopefully one day (and with the help of shock therapy) Ness and siegfried will be able to upgrade to the level of ‘Aeolus’ – that is, a troll that can type a wee bit better (but is still a sad, lonely little child).

                                                                                                                                                                        Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but the last time I checked – I thought this was My NINTNEDO News.com?

                                                                                                                                                                        NOT My Racism/Religion/Shitstation/Pussysoft/Ninfag/Lack-of-geographical-and-sociological-knowledge.com.

                                                                                                                                                                        THAT website is thataway –>

                                                                                                                                                                        Now, on topic: If a delay for Europe/Australasia WERE to occur, then it wouldn’t be that big of a deal. Seriously, is an extra month (or two, MAX) THAT much of a drama? It is a monumental task for any company to ship a product worldwide (let alone simultaneously), let alone a next-gen piece of hardware. Rushing such a thing to market could lead to peformance and reliability issues – something that is far worse than a mere delay. Case in point – RROD (which cost Microsoft a BILLION dollars).

                                                                                                                                                                        Oh, and sickr – I found this site a little while back, and I just want to say what a great job you’re doing (even if many of the foul-mouthed deviants here can’t see that)!

                                                                                                                                                                      2. Well I waited for a long time to get my hands on the 3DS so I don’t think 1 extra month would do me any harm. Besides, when the Americans and the Japanese get their hands on the device they’d be able to tell us in the UK and Europe whether its worth buying or not.

                                                                                                                                                                      3. How can it be DELAYED?
