    you can turn the 6.2" screen OFF, set it to display the map or inventory like a Nintendo DS or stream what is happening on the television. some titles will require the use of the Wii U screen like in the on stage demo.

    seems like there are a lot of potential applications for it. whether you give a shit or not is up to you.

    I'm interested in the H.U.D. capabilities, and the inventory display. Being able to switch weapons with a glance down and a touch sounds awesome. It would make a good rear view mirror in racing games too.

    "Did I ever tell you what the definition of insanity is? Insanity is...buying the exact same repackaged FPS game over and over again, expecting...it to be any different. That...is crazy. And than i started seeing everywhere i looked, everywhere i looked all these fucking video game producers making these exact same fucking games...over and over and over and over again thinking...this time its gone be different. I'm sorry, i am sick and tired of playing the same old repackaged FPS.

    He says the reason for this is that Nintendo is still "a year away from when the console will launch".

    Yeah so the Wii U might even look better.

    As dodgy as Sony passing CG rendering as game play?

    I heard they used the 360's and/or PS3's rendering power for the Zelda trailer.:wtf:

    I doubt that. PC maybe but not another console for Zelda.

    problem is gameplay footage from a nintendo console doesn't look good on a video or TV advert, don't know why they even bothered if its around a year off, why not just show it at next years e3

    I tend to agree with TheMailMan i just cant see how the would use a PS3 seeing as how different its architecture is and no point using a 360 when its so compatible with PC. Using amalgamations of other versions of games to make a trailer doesnt exactly mean they produced anything on other systems.

    Lemme know when you are done trollin. Ill show you how to do it properly. I see much potential.

    I suspect a lot of stuff was done on a PC or a Devkit. A year is a LOT of time. Need to build hype so we get the pre rendered stuff for now.

    if you arent guilty of trolling (which I cant be sure of at this point), then you are certainly guilty of over-posting. I swear there are 16 year old girls out there that have less to say than you seem to.

    You don't have a legitimate argument. You are just saying random thing applying Nintendo is being disingenuous. Thats not an argument. Thats trolling.

    The problem was they were not clear enough on the direction they were going. Hell look at half of the members here on TPU! Most thought the controller was the damn system! lol

    Point taken, i think i've got 50 posts in here, not my fault it just interests me, i'm also on the losing side, and accept that, just a bit irritated that nintedo took the thing that managed to sway me back to liking it, and didn't mention at the time it was just the same thing all the other consoles had

    so i'm not the only one who doesn't feel it was done too well, i still fear the price of a spare remote

    cheesy and MailMan, you're clogging up this thread. Take your petty arguments elsewhere. I'm not asking and I have my finger on the trigger.

    That's true.

    I'm still skeptical about the system myself, we still haven't really seen what it can actually do.

    When they say its not finished yet that means they are still tweaking the production version. Could be still developing the software for it too. That doesn't mean there doesn't exist any dev kits. Reggie even mentioned early dev kits being used whatever that means.

    EDIT: Here's what to expect from the Wii U http://www.viddler.com/explore/Joystiq/videos/5958/ (There is an advertisement at the beginning just start the video and refresh the page and the ad will act like its been watched so it wont appear again).
