Console looks nice, shame pad isn't similar to wii remote as it was good for FPS.

You are still able to use the controllers. The "pad" will just use whatever it works best with.

Lol beat me to it

I think it looks good and sounds like it could be a lot of fun and is catering for the more 'serious' gamers as well

The graphics are apparently comparable to the 360.

The 360 was released 6 years ago....Wouldn't be surprised if MIcrosoft announced a new Xbox before the WiiU is actually available.

I was hoping that, as long as developers still make use of it I'll be happy.

Graphics are not the be all. The Wii showed that. It was innovative and it seems that their next offering is as well.

People concerned solely with graphics will stick to what they think is the superior console.

family gaming is gonna be pricey, look at the price they originally charged for a wii-mote and nun chuck.

Hopefully. It seems that many developers are quite excited by it. Especially considering some of the rumoured/confirmed games that would NEVER have made it on the Wii.

You're right. Consoles are about fun and the Wii was great for the first few weeks. Then it got boring.

I just don't see what this offers that people should get excited about.

not impressed in the least, sorry but i think the controller is ridiculous, good concept but completely impractical.

The issue with the Wii has been limited quality third party support. Releases have been so thin on the ground for the last year or so now, as if they'd given up on it. I think the same problem with plague the new one.

I guess time will tell. We don't even have a launch catalogue yet to give us an idea of what it is going to offer. The Wii was never going to appeal to the whole market but it had some real highlights.

Wii Sports.....Mario Kart (until you realise that if you actually get good at it the game punishes you)....um, Mario Galaxy was apparently good.

All the e3 conferences were terrible

Microsoft = boring kinect stuff (only cool thing was 3d) other than that pah

Sony = vita was a bit boring too, nothing special. especially if it costs more than ps3

Nintendo = huge controller, almost the size of your forearm!

Lol I actually read that and looked at my forearm and then thought hmmm yep you're right!

We need GTA5.

Families going to be going through them controllers at an expensive rate.

the only thing i like about nintendo is mario games, ive bought and sold a DS or a wii so i can play mario games about 4times, my partner always says i dont know why you bother selling it as you will only want another, i wish they would bring out a console that took all games xbox, ps3, wii, ds etc then you would only need one machine instead of about 3 or 4.

U can say that again, i was looking forward to that
and a bit of FF13-2 or something new..

Shocking

I just don't get Nintendo. I don't like Mario or Zelda or any of the sub-Disney cuteness. I just can't buy into that particular ideology.

It's like Twilight or X Factor or paedophilia in that sense - I just don't get the appeal.

Doubt it's me, I've never been wound up. I think I know who

Wonder what silly accessories they will have this time, like a patch of turf or a sand pit to play the golf game in.
Oh and I hope they make a rubber skin like they did for the wii mote. Imagine what damage this could do when it flies imout of your hand!

Did you watch the unveiling? You can put the controller on the floor and if you hit the ball in to the sand it sits in the sand on the screen. It does the same for the green etc.

That's incredible, because with games like Tiger Woods I've had to look at my 40-inch TV to see where the ball was.

But you're saying that I can look down at a 6-inch screen to see - Welcome to the WORLD OF TOMORROW!
