Who else thinks this is a terrible mistake?


* Those controllers will not be cheap.
* Those controllers are perfect for people who can move both eyes separately.
* HD was new gen 5 years ago. Not next year.
* No blu ray. Fail.
* Didn't have a huge 3rd party company like Valve throwing support.
* Nintendo is shafting Majora's Mask like it's cdi crap... (not directly Wii U related, I know)
* I already bought current gen consoles- waiting for the /real/ next gen.
* Comments on all game news sites are vast majority negative..


Nintendo is going to do worse with this than they did with GameCube.



I don't love you anymore Nintendo. ;_; </3

I find it rather interesting.

* I know. ;_;
* Wut?
* Who said it was new? :S
* Don't give a shit about Blu ray.
* So?
* Yeah I noticed it didn't have any MM. Kinda pissed me off. It also didn't have any of the hand-helds.
* ?
* Wouldn't know, I tend not to care what the masses think, only what I think.

I loved the GameCube. Go chew on a bullet.

My friend put it rather well:

I think it might do well actually. They were smart keeping the Wii branding (even though it still sounds dumb imo), the masses will recognize it as an obvious new Nintendo console and it gains favor from that alone. Not everyone are nerds like us and likely wont even know about it till launch.

The controllers will be pricey, but not overkill. The tech inside them really isn't all that new or expensive. What's new is how it's being implemented. The fact that they made the original Wii's peripherals compatible was a good move. They were really under utilized (in good games) on wii, especially things like motion plus that came out later in it's life.

As far as the HD goes, better late than never. Nintendo will likely never be the leader in graphics power again, that is/has been obvious. That HD Zelda tease made my day though. They better not go making a cell shaded Zelda for it. Also, the fact that it will be getting major third-party cross platform games now makes it a whole lot more appealing to me. I can see a lot of those games, if they implement the controls right, being the definitive version on Wii U.

We'll just have to wait for more news on it, it's a bit early to make final judgements.

The announcements of Luigi's Mansion 2 and Smash Bro's 3ds/Wii U were nice to hear. It shows they at least listen somewhat to what their fans have been asking for. I'm still confident there's a good chance for them to give MM the OoT 3D treatment. It all comes down to how well OoT 3D sells. If there's demand for it, they'd be stupid not to do it.

SSB games haven't even been started ^

And the Demo Reel showed footage from games running on PS3, 360, and PC:

Yeah, that's pretty damn stupid. They should have waited until next year, when they have footage off their own console to show.
Also, next year? Looks like they're breaking away from the 5 year time span between each console release.

Hopefully Nintendo will not go through with this project. Unlikely but ... oi.

Honestly, the more info I see about the Wii U, the more optimistic I am about it. There's a shitton of potential there. Also, things WILL change from what we've seen. Everyone is seeing the early stuff, pointing out all the potential negatives, and acting like it's set in stone. The truth is Nintendo seems to be handling things really well this go around.

There is no reason to buy this system! At all!

I've already got 10 thousand other devices that can play DVD's. I don't need nor want another.
It really pisses me off when people complain that a GAME console can't play DVD's. It's a GAME CONSOLE, for GAMES, not MOVIES. GET A DVD PLAYER IF YOU WANT TO WATCH A DVD!

NO!
I want one freakin thing to do everything. Every competitor can play dvds so it is NOT asking too much for Wii U to do it too.


My only beef is that Wii U has absolutely zero selling points without a tba serious lineup of amazing games. Having built in DVD player would have been a selling point. (albeit a very small one)

I would agree with you, except the console doesn't come out for more than another year. They don't have anything, and that's kind of the point. What I personally think they were doing, was showing off their next console early, and just the console. Why? To show gamers what kind of system they're working on next, what type of play mechanics they can look forward to, to show game developers the technology they're working on and give them more time to come up with ideas on how to use it in their games, and most importantly, to get more feedback on it before it's release, both positive and negative, to see how they can improve it.

If that's not what their plan was, then I don't know what the fuck they were thinking, but all of the above is still true regardless, and it is a good thing. I personally like the idea of the WiiU and the new controller, and I'm glad they're finally stepping up their graphical interface (though graphics were never my main concern). The only thing I don't like, is that the it's not going to be cheap, and replacement controllers will be a bitch.

Wooo! OOT 3D BABY!

I'm going to head up to GameStop the moment they open, and if they don't have it in yet, I'm going to WAIT until they do. I'll be playing Link's Awakening DX on my 3DS whilst I do so. :D

Iwata only had regrets about not showing more pics of the console itself during the conference to avoid confusion. Really though, you'd have to be half a moron to think the controller was a console itself or an original Wii add on.

As for the no dvd/bluray playback, it would be nice to have, but is not at all needed. It's a small selling point at best and is obviously outweighed by the additional production/licensing cost. (Besides, if Nintendo payed Sony to use their format, we'd have flying pigs and a froze over nether. You don't want that do you?)

So you're afraid the new console will be expensive, yet you're complaining that it doesn't have a minor feature that would jack the price up? Personally, paying for something I already have doesn't make much sense to me.
