3DS in April. Let's hope not.

We know you're impatiently waiting for September 29th, when Nintendo will finally announce the release date and pricing for its upcoming 3DS handheld, but if this rumour turns out to be true you could be waiting impatiently for the console a little longer than first thought.

An anonymous retail source – your Scepticism Meter is probably exploding around now – claimed to gaming website VGTribune that:

Based on our discussions with Nintendo management . . . the target dates are in April for the Americas.

Quite what the ellipsis omitted is unknown, but if this anonymous source is correct we'll be waiting at least a few weeks longer than first thought. Or this could be a completely false rumour and we'll all be playing by Christmas. Find out which on September 29th!
