Wii U development troubles rumored

Nintendo is having difficulties with Wii U hardware development, rumor has it.

According to 01net (via), the issue is how the much talked about wireless controller communicates with the console itself; the streaming tech isn’t working properly, apparently, with developers being sent software updates almost daily.

Nintendo hasn’t committed to a concrete launch date for the system yet, only saying it’ll be after April 2012. This latest rumor would have us believe that the controller troubles have pushed a previously internally targeted June window to September though.

In any case, don’t expect any announcements until next year.
