It's the most wonderful time of the year, unless you're a parent.
Nintendo is set to cause retail workers and parents alike more stress at Christmas time as it is expected that the Wii U will be launched by the end of 2012. Originally it was stated that the console would hit certain markets no earlier than 2012, but it is expected to be released across the board in time for the festive season. After revealing its third quarter 2012 financial results Nintendo’s President, Satoru Iwata, said that the Wii U would hit key markets for the year end.
The Wii U is set to be re-revealed at E3 this summer and speculation is rife as to the console’s true power and specifications. These details, along with key launch titles, are expected to be unveiled at the summer showcase. Rumours currently suggest that the console will produce visuals on a par with the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.
I am NOT looking forward to the influx of Zelda and Mario games though.
