Cheat Sheet 1/26: Wii U by the end of the year, Insomniac is done with Resistance and California is paying back the ESA for those pesky lawsuits.

Back for that daily dose of mainstream gaming news. 

– Satoru Iwata, President of Nintendo has said that the Wii U will launch by the end of this year.

– Insomniac won’t be making any additions to the Resistance franchise.

– The fallout from last year’s M-rated games legislation has left California owing 1.3 million to the Electronic Software Association. 

– Netflix isn’t going to rent games. It makes me sad.

– Nintendo’s predicting heavier financial losses than expected for March and the fiscal year.

A pretty somber day but there’s more where that came from tomorrow.
