The new rumor places the release date as November 11. This date comes from an online listing provided by a company that provides US retail outlets, Amazon, Newegg and Blockbuster with their products. The listing shows three distinct SKUs arriving for launch day, priced at $249, $299, and $349 respectively.

Nintendo America is set to hold a press conference on September 13. At this press conference, it is hoped they will reveal the launch plans of the Nintendo WiiU, including pricing, launch day, and what games will be available at launch.
