That controller is one brilliant idea! We can play all the classical games (think battlefield 3 and modern warfare 3) and also enjoy new kinds of games thanks to the extra screen!
The Wii U looks nice, I can't wait to play the next Zelda game in 1080P HD on that thing. It's also really nice that more 3rd party games are coming Nintendo, like batman: arkham city and modern warfare 3. I'd really wish that Treyarch would make the mw3 perks more like the ones in black ops for the wii.
I'm getting fed up of Reggie's "Don't worry I promise we're gonna deliver" face. He's been wearing it every year since the Wii launched and I'm still waiting.
As mentioned before the Wii U was unveiled it is the games that sell the hardware. They've still got some time because we aren't likely to see the Wii U hit shelves until late 2012. The system looks like it has potential but you've got to show me some games before I will be sold. I don't want to invest in another paperweight system that I only use to watch Netflix like my current Wii.
Of the three hardware makers this one was the best followed by Sony and Microsoft in dead last place.
Great they've managed to make an even more awkward controller. They should have went for a more Dreamcast/VMU approach rather than an iPad with a joystick.
Ah... now the name "Wii" makes a little bit of sense... Nintendo Revolution would still have been a better console name.
This looks amazing. My wii never gets played compared to my PS3 and N64. I really hope I can go back to Nintendo next generation if the can deliver, which it looks like they very much can.
sorry to say this BUT i need to see the 3D get its rights in Nintendo's systems. about the Wii U the roamers was right so we will see and 3DS it should get more work time ,and Pokedex hey hello we need Pokemon in 3D anyway nice at all . Let The Future show us what is next ^^
They're trying to sell to the world, so they use baseball in their advertising......Only Americans watch baseball. Football on the other hand (or soccer if you're an american) is watched by the WORLD. Why do i get the impression their aiming this more at the yanks?
they have shown a new technology on next e3 Microsoft will show far and far better than this lets wait and watch.
hope they have a descent price i hope it will be quite expensive but i am not ready for a new generation console yet..let seeeeeeeeeeee. hope for the best.
I'm just gonna go ahead and say that Nintendo is weird, but I hope they can pull it off with this new console.
@southernzombie I also think its awesome! Imagine playing metroid on that---never mind i get too excited. But I was wondering the same thing. Its probably just Sony trolling us cuz we PWN. But haters gonna hate.
ok am i the only one who thinks the wii u is gonna be pretty awesome? that controller is a brilliant idea. one of the cool things i just read it will do is like if you have ur wii in the living room playin a game and somebody is mad cuz they wanna watch tv you can have the console stream the video to the controller screen and play on it and they can have the tv. thats just awesome
Great show for Nintendo. The Wii U is going to be pretty awesome next year. Imagine how many games will be ready for it when it launches. Nintendo didn't really go into a lot of the Wii games themselves. Didn't show Wii Sports Resort 2, Pikmin 3 or many other 1st party games for the Wii. It was all about 3DS and Wii U. No price yet on the Wii U, but I'm thinking it'll be no less then $350 at launch. I won't be running out and getting it. I'm sure Nintendo will drop the price of the Wii to $99 by then. They should continue to sell Wii's as long as they keep selling.
@uhvt123 LoL is there really a need to ask that question. WiiU will definitely sell more units than Vita since Vita is a portable device while WiiU is a brand new console. If Wii sold more than 80m units worldwide, you can just imagine how much a more powerful and innovative console with incredible visuals, a lot of third-party support including Nintendo's original titles would sell.
