Nintendo's E3 2011 reveal of Wii U ended with a fairly open-ended "coming to your living room in 2012" which, combined with the company's previous assertion the machine wouldn't see release before April gave us a launch window between May and December. SEGA's Alan Pritchard may have just narrowed that for us.

Speaking to Gamespot about the upcoming Sonic Generations, Pritchard was asked whether or not the hedgehog's anniversary adventure would make the leap to Wii U:

The timing just doesn't work. Generations releases this November, and the Wii U is coming out next spring/summer.

You never know: by this time next year you may be playing on your very own Wii U. What do you say to that?
