NES-->Revives the industry
Now, based on N64 and Gamecube, N64 was launch 2 years after its announcement, and Gamecube took one year. Wii as I recall was seen at two E3s prior to launching. By this logic, it should be obvious that Wii U will almost likely launch this year.
Now, as for the North American launch dates, October, August, September, November, November.
Launches in the latter half of the year, but still before the holidays. They prefer the middle of the month (September 29th is an outlier, afaict). The NES and SNES launched on Fridays. The N64, GC and Wii launched on Sundays. Third full week of the month, occasionally fourth.
I pin the launch date at one of two guesses: Sunday, October 21st, 2012, or Friday October 26th, 2012.
Saving this thread for posterity in case I'm right.
