*videos shown not played on Wii U, games are confirmed for Wii U however


Disc storage is 25GB Single Layered, Double/Dual Layered is 50GB. (Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the original Wii is double/dual-layered.

Wi-Fi has a possibility of making a big turnaround allegedly. Face chat was a shown feature in an E3 Video

Supposedly what we have for downloadable content at this point would be the ability to download a number of GameCube games and WiiWare.

The HD will be 1080p if you connect through an HDMI port on an HDTV via HDMI Cable. The original Wii only had 480p, about the equivalent of an old DVD.

Nintendo has also announced that the Wii U will be able to support 2 Wii U controllers at the same time.

The Wii U is allegedly going to have a significant increase in it's RAM, pitted against it's predecessor.

Wii U will have it's own drawing studio built in, as seen HERE

I am sure there are a lot of details that can be added so I wouldn't mind a little of help on this one. This forum isn't the most active ATM though so just getting the basics are good.

Also, you can use this thread for an information source and a discussion thread.

So, general thoughts/impressions/opinions/general discussions are all welcome here!

Oh, I thought it was earlier.


That sounds right. When was it last year? I don't remember it being in Summer. But maybe it was, I dunno really.
Its typically in mid June now.

Nintendo never reveals official specs, we'll have to wait on the rumor mill or for someone to actually get a system and take it apart. What we will see is the final aesthetic form of the console/controller, how many controllers it will really support, and most importantly see some real games being played on the thing. Price and release date is a bit more iffy, if its coming late summer/early fall then they'll probably tell us and if its coming closer to the holidays I imagine they'll hold off and have a specific conference in October for that info.

i thought it was always in june, that must just be me, but i dont doubt that they will reveal some of the wii u specifications at the conference

Nov 10, 11 at 3:18am

They used to hold it in late May, but after the show died those couple of years they started back up in June.

Nov 10, 11 at 2:45am

Zuidy: No, it's always been June for the most part.

well Nintendo always has a big conference sometime in february each year so hopefully we know some more info then
Ehhhhh........ I think we can expect more to come from E3 than a conf. as far as Wii U goes.

Considering that there is another thread in this forum stating that Nintendo will show the final Wii U system there.
