A 199$ system with Witcher 2, Skyrim, Mass Effect 1-2-3, Kinect, Ryse, Draco, Dust, Alan wake 1-2, Halo, Gears, Fable 2-3-Journey, Amalur, Crysis 1-2, Oblivion, Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, Tales of Vesperia, Assassin Creed, Bioshock Infinite etc etc and stunning visuals

Or a 600$ system, with a huge akward screen as controller, the worst 3rd party support the world has seen, no Zelda for another 4-5 years, about same graphics as xbox 360 and a new system planned 3-4 years after its release as Nintendo has zero support for its systems

I would go with 360 for now, for the infinite coming and released games and wait for xbox 720 myself

Maybe grab a WiiU in 5-6 years in bargain bin with the new Zelda that will be released by that time and sell it after playing it

Lol What!The WiiU won't cost $600 and we don't know how good the third party support will be for the system.And you can't take full advantage of the $199 dollar Xbox360 console because you need the 250GB hardrive or the 320GB hardrive to download DLC for all those games and to download lots of xbox live arcade titles and to install games.I own a xbox360 and I do enjoy playing on it, but it's a pain trying to buy a pile of expensive accesories to get the most out of the $199 console.

And what was the comparision in this thread for the 360 and the WiiU.

Actually you can download DLC and any Live game on the 4Gb model and play all games online etc

There is zero difference to the 250GB system

You dont have to buy any accessories at all

How about Wii motion plus btw ? Zelda wont play without it and i cant find it anywhere on the market, only the 50 euro controller, which i also did not need

Talk about a steal from Nintendo

WiiU will cost 500-600$ at least, remember that it has a huge screen, which would make it as expensive as a cell phone, which cost 600-800$ or more

Of course if they have basic graphics hardware, maybe it costs 500$

I'm talking about space for downloading lots of DLC and xbox live arcade titles for the console.The 4GB console doesn't provide lots of space for doing that. I had to waste money on buying xbox live and HDMI cables and I have to eventually waste money on buying a $100-150 harddrive.The Will will cost at least $400.The controller doesn;t really affect the price of the WiiU. It;s the hardware inside that will effect the price of the WiiU

Even though the controller is big it's pretty light to hold from what I heard from people that went to last years E3.

But it is the shape that is the problem, not the weight

Holding a tablet is akward, to say the least and the worst pad design i could think of

Also will make WiiU price go sky high, unless they have graphics hardware of 4-5 years back to cut back that cost

Tablets with such screens cost 500$+ and have far worst hardware than xbox 360

The tablet controller isn't actually an ordinary tablet.The controller has no hardware inside of it.The materials that make up the tablet controller are cost effective.

The screen is a still a screen, even if they have cardboard around it, would still cost nearly as much

And WiiU sill has graphics hardware, does not matter if it is on the tablet or in a separate box, it is still expensive since it is not just PC parts

The only way to have a reasonable price for this setup, is having hardware from many years back inside

It has to have some hardware. But it still isn't the same as a normal tablet because you need to be in the same building as the console to use the controller.

I was just correcting him because it has to have some hardware inside.

I didn't say anything about cutting cost.

Though I still think the system will be powerful just based on what most of the developers that are making games for it are saying they are impressed with the hardware.

Then the price will probably be huge

I dont see how they can pack impressive hardware and a huge screen for a low price, that would be something if they can pull it off

6.5 isn't HUGE.. and LCD screens are not thath expensive.. It;d ot like they took the an iPad and stuffed it in their controller. I take it you've held the controller, played with the controller, and have plenty of experince with it to know it's awkward and huge? I'm just saying, if you don't ... then shut up about it being awkward to hold, you don't know.

It's still possible to have tech specs that include 2008/2009 or greater hardware inside the console even with the controller.

I have played with an iPad and the feeling of holding the huge thing is terrible, how much different could it be ?

microsoft is garbage

Yet 360 has my top exclusives like Fable, Lost Odyssey, top multipltforms like Skyrim, Witcher, top shooters, top motion controls, top online and 99.9999% of PC gamers buy MS platform (windows) to play their games on

How garbage can MS be exactly when it controls 99.9999% of gaming ?

9.7 inch is much larger than 6.5 inch. I'm pretty sure the iPad was designed to be held ergonically for playing video games for extended periods of time. Just because they have similar aspects to them, you cannot compare them.
