    Innovation makes you sad? You deserve watered down consoles then.

    how is innovation sticking yet another screen no one wanted on an already over priced controller whilst the console itself will probably not reach the optimisation needed to overtake the current ones until 2014 when the ps 4 comes out

    and having played many of nintendo's games on the wii i can tell you its not the console nintendo needs to work on its its collection of games which can only be described as 'bad', gameplay is terible and my psp beats the graphics it provides and i'd love to say i was exaggerating but i'm not

    i'll only consider the new wii if they still have support for gamecube controllers and even then it'll be a tough decision as my ps3 and xbox are doing fine at the moment, and by that i mean i like all the games i have for them (ps3 is better then xbox for those who don't have both)

    I think a lot of people missed a lot of things from that show.

    1. Wii U is a new console with new specs unreleased.
    2. Wii U has a console WITH a new controller. Not just a controller.
    3. Wii U will use the old controller.
    4. The Wii U controller will allow you to play the new console ANYWHERE in the house.

    I mean really people. Learn to listen.

    No one wanted? Like no one wanted motion controls?......lol

    will that include the gamecube controller as that was actually nice to use (i prefer my controllers to be controllers, that's why my consoles display the graphics on a TV!!!)

    And there were a lot of people who wanted motion controls which had the chance to be new and innovative, asopposed to a TV in the controller which is old and expensive

    this is gonna be like the old Wii, which has on average 3 games sold for every console eg:bought buy 'misled, non technical people' who then realised they've been ripped of and don't use it

    Wii U-nnecessary!

    If you want to Nintendo game on the move, you use your favourite flavour of DS. The Wii U controller will be MEGA expensive because it will have to be powerful enough to run the same titles that the actual Wii U console does. And surely by now the Wii 2 will have half decent specs. By rights, it should be on par, or ideally better than, the 360 and PS3.

    So what will we be looking at? Nintendo Wii U + tablet style controller = £400. Or you can buy the new console without the controller for £200?????

    And y'all are missing the whole point to any video game or video game system. It's to make money. They (nintendo) thinks it's a good if not great idea, it will sell, all nintendo systems do. it's probably 18 moonths off anyway. I suspect november of 2012

    they will rip it off so they can get MONEY, businesses go where the money is not where they actually should go, my kinect sytems been the biggest waste of time as there's not one good game that uses it yet

    Sony have been doing it for the last 5 years now anyway, only innovation is making it compulsory

    go on your PSP, launch 'remote play' and SEE WHAT HAPPENS!!!

    What are you on about? The classic controller was better than the gamecube controller in every way conceivable in my opinion. As long as it can use that, and it can, I'm happy.

    I don't see how you gathered that this was aimed at the casual market like the Wii, when 95% of the games they showed for it were awesome.

    and nintendo have ripped off the idea to make money, because people weren't interested in sony solution due to limited support and marketing

    A lot of people out there buy what they see on TV to look fashionable etc

    i gathered the idea it was for the casual market as ive never heard a TPU user say 'do you know what i need, a small TV on the contoller which will make it cost the same amount as an actual 20" tv'

    at the end of the day i have used a wii controller and while is was 'intresting' it wasn't very good as a controller, i'm guessing the wii u will be the same, a good idea, but it won't work out

    i mean i still like consoles that sega make and i wasn't even around when they were in production, not for the graphic (its 20 years old) but because the games were 'fun'

    my point is it was already invented and no one was interested, its not innovation its just copying an idea that didn't work by improving the support and marketing

    i do 'like' the idea i just see everything Nintendo have done in the past 5 years being a complete failure(from a technical view - i know their profit margins are excellent) and i don't want them to turn this into a stupid gimmick like they did with motion control

    if they did this 5 years ago i would of trusted them to pull it off but not now...

    I have never owned a console since the Atari and ever since technology allowed it, I always thought console controlers needed a touchscreen on them. I never thought about such a big screen, more like 4" screen, but as a PC gamer always thought that console controlers were very limited and this may solve many of the problems. I will not buy a console now either, but I think it's a great idea with a lot of potential.

    looks like a complete wii all over again, just watched the video instead of looking at the pics and although i see battlefield 3 i also see wii fit and some stupid chat program

    i like the sound of a Nintendo-ea partnership though

    if nintendo can stop messing around with Wii fit and nintendogs and make something with a play time that keeps you intrested for more then 15 minutes i can see them being great, i mean they entered 3d gaming with some cool games as now but 1-2months later i turn on the TV and see an Advert for Nintendogs 3d and think- seriously, again?

    We need Nintendo to stop ******* (yeah asterisks, put whatever word you feel appropriate in there) around with their consoles and get onboard some good game designers

    I can see this being useful though, who wouldn't want to see their tyre temps whilst their racing or their stats+ health and stuff whilst shooting

    Um the Wii U will have all the high end games the other console have (BF3, Batman) PLUS the Nintendo classics. I really don't know WTF you are going on about at this point. Are you just hating to hate?

    bit of both, i'm still really worried nintendo will push this back in to novelty or make it very expensive just to fill their pockets, some of its just built up anger from the first console

    i sitll want to know, any chance of a tradditional controller working on the wii u?

    all this motion control and touchcreen isn't very good when you just want to sit down and play

    You say that as if it was bad. The Wii has been until now the only console I would ever consider buying. It serves the purpose of a console. Entertainment and light gaming. Good for the kids and so on. For Battlefields and other "serious" games, AAA games, that's what the PC is for. PS and Xbox as far as I am concerned are nothing but unnecessary run of the mill gaming platforms. Not powerful enough to run "serious" games such as Battlefield 3 the way they should be played, overkill for anything alse.

    Wii u has third party developers. Wii never did.

    * Darksiders 2
    * Batman: Arkham City
    * "Tekken"
    * Assassin's Creed
    * Lego City Stories
    * Ghost Recon Online
    * DiRT
    * Aliens: Colonial Marines
    * Metro: Last Light
    * Ninja Gaiden 3: Razer's Edge

    this is just to start. once the system is up I am sure developers will begin porting titles. apparently Rockstar already has a debug unit (Wii u developer console)

    i've actually used it, and the games aren't entertaining, the mario/other nintendo games are unbelievably repetitive and the rest of the games are all either sport or fitness based

    if the motion control was good enough that the pointer wouldn't move when the remotes lying still on the table i would conider it a success, but i've only ever enjoyed the wii is when using the old gamecube controllers, everytime someone starts up super smash bros theres always a rush to not be the one with the wii remote

    As i've said before if they can get EA and Co over onto it i can see it being fun and a great experience, but the current batch of wii games lacks all creativity and are usually badly programmed

    i want the touchscreen controller to be something thats nice to use is my honest opinion and after all the rubbish they've put us through i don't see it happening
