Wii U won't be unleashed till after April 1 2012

Hankering for some screen-controlling home console action? Prepare for a long wait 


Ninty's USA president Reffie Fils-Aime has gone on the record as stating that the Wii U won't be launching till after April 1 of next year. He went on to state that the next-gen console will be standing shoulder to shoulder on shelves with its waggle-stick toting older sibling, the Wii, for a little while after launch at least. 

While this may seem a long way off for gamers to wait, an onslaught of  handhelds like the 3DS and Playstation Vita, coupled with a slew of upcoming titles like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim should ensure that the wait is as painless as possible.With the Xbox 720 (a title in progress) set to debut at next year's E3, the console wars are showing no signs of cooling off whatsoever.
