That's a big 'window', Nintendo [UPDATED]

Nintendo released a list of 50 or so games that will be available for the Wii U during the so-called launch 'window'. The time period for said window? From November 18 2012 to March 31, 2013.

Four and a half months, approximately. Still, lets put it in perspective. How many games were available at the PS3 launch, or within 4 months? There were 21 games that Sony listed as 'launch' titles, some of which fell into the 'window' rather than launch day. The xbox launched with 14 titles listed, and 18 for the xbox 360.

Nintendo has 50, although it remains to be seen which will actually make it out on launch 'day'.

UPDATE: Nintendo has now listed November 18 launch day release dates for 21 of those games now, according to examiner.com
