Wii U Launching December 6th Down Under?

An anonymous tipster from an Australian retailer told Kotaku that the Wii U will be released in Australia on Thursday, December 6th. Because of the Wii shortages that were prevalent when the console debut in 2006, Nintendo is apparently making sure that anyone who pre-orders a Wii U from EB Games will get it at launch. For the sake of comparison, the Wii was released on Thursday, December 7th, 2006, in Australia.

          1. I doubt it, it’ll probably be released late December 2012 or early January 2013.

      1. Pero es mas barato aún que en Costa Rica :(, me gustaría al menos saber la fecha para comenzar a ahorrar. No creo que sea barato.

  1. WUUUUT?!

    Australia won’t get fucked over?

    Its the Sign of the Apocalypse!

    No, but seriously, even though I’m not Australian, I’m surprised about how much they get fucked over.

    1. U don’t like the controller Master?

      Let mii tell off the people at Nintendo for using this disgusting image

  2. Huh, that’s my birthday. :o That would be pretty cool if it came out the same day in America, although it’s really unlikely. Maybe mid or late November.

  3. LOL you dumbass wiitards !! It says “anonymous tipster” ..and LOL this console is gay !! And a big waste of money ..u nintenfags buy everything Nintendo shits out

    1. …..Well that’s what a fanboy normally would do yes … hate to state the obvious … I won’t be getting it though, doesn’t interest me, I prefer Nintendo Handhelds. PS4 is the one I’m waiting on.

      1. I feel bad for people like Ness, he about gets damn near a heart attack when ever he hears that name “Nintendo”.

        1. It’s weird too … he hates Nintendo so much yet he has Ness as his name … even if it was his real name you think he would at least create an alias …. What a confusing child.

          1. Ness is an actualy real name

            vaNESSa. Short for Vanessa guys. Life is not always about games. welcome to reality…

            1. Did you at all read the part when I said:

              “even if it was his real name you think he would at least create an alias”

              You know … to avoid situations like this? Shit Aeolus, can you even read?

    1. NO!!!! I live in Australia and we should get it at the same time too. Ive planned to be one of the first people to make an unboxing video of it and upload it to YouTube and if this is true then my plan failed. I also just want the Wii U really badly.

      1. It’s ok I live in New Zealand and i have to say that you are better off than us the prices of games and consoles are much lower there and apart from the not over 18 game law it is better to be there for gaming

  4. Whenever i meet a pretty girl i look for intelligance because if she doesnt have that shes mines

  5. oh, and Gilbert Gottfreid, ghetto enough to rape some white folks, why are stupid enough to put ur name on the internet, now we can come and rape you!

    1. Or a company press release. Though I’m sure one of the two will announce it verbally either through a Nintendo Direct (in which case both could do it in their respective territories) or some press event like last year’s 3DS Conference.

  6. Or you can just wait till Nintendo gives a fuckin release date damn I’m so tired of these speculations

  7. Pretty decent, if thats the case then people living in UK and Europe might get it a week later.

  8. I’ll travel to New York and I’ll get mine at the Nintendo World Store (Rockefeller Center)

  9. I’ll travel to New York and I’ll get mine at the Nintendo World Store (Rockefeller Center) yaaaay! day 1 !!
