I can't think of a good reason it launched in 2012, other than the holiday release window.

Why does any consoles release at any time?

Why did the PS3 launch in November of 2006? I can't think of a good reason it launched in November 2006, other than the holiday release window.

Because the 3DS flopped with it's post holiday release, Vita flopped with it's post holiday release in international markets, and Nintendo left the Wii to die a year ago. It waws rush the WiiU into the 2012 holiday market, or risk the WiiU flopping with a post holiday release. Funny how they still flopped.

Seeing as Nintendo didn't bother to put all of the files on the OS in house before launch, or bother to offer any Winter support for the WiiU at all, they should have just waited and made more games ready.
