Wii U release date November 18th?

It seems a Japanese retailer has leaked the (most likely) release date of the Wii U. Sunday November 18th will be the release date for the Wii U in the United States, with the release in Japan coming a week later. For comparison, the original Wii was released on Sunday November 19th in the United states. The date seems likely with the holiday shopping season starting the week after the release.

Anon: No. GamesIndustry.biz was the one that had that rumor they disguised as a report saying that the system has sub Xbox 360 graphics. And again; Marvin MacDonald of Vigil Games said "so far" it had at least XBOX 360 level graphics which contradicts GI's report.

Eurogamer's post is not unreasonable. I think it holds water. I still think an early November global release would be the best bet instead of a staggered mid to late November release so that the system has enough time to gain a launch lineup while at the same time be close enough for the Christmas Rush.
