PDP’s senior vice president of sales and marketing, William Otte had this to say about the supposed leak of the Nintendo Wii U release date:
“Performance Designed Products (“PDP”) is aware of recent rumors posted alleging that PDP inadvertently “leaked” the official release date of the upcoming Nintendo Wii U gaming system during a trade presentation earlier today. To be clear, PDP has no knowledge whatsoever of the official Wii U release date, and thus it is not possible for PDP to have “leaked” this information.
During PDP’s presentation of our fall line of gaming accessories to customers at a trade event, we stated that our Wii U accessories would be available at launch. Much later in the presentation we showed our Epic Mickey 2: The Power of 2 accessories for the Wii and confirmed that the Wii accessories will be in stores by the game’s November 18 launch date. Connecting the Wii U launch and Epic Mickey 2 peripheral launch dates is inaccurate and false. PDP has no knowledge whether this is the official Wii U release date or not.”
Otte is saying that people are incorrectly connecting Epic Mickey 2′s November 18th launch date with the Wii U release date. Otte also states that PDP doesn’t know exactly when the Wii U will actually launch. Do you think PDP is trying to cover their tracks or did people misinterpret what was said?
