wow I thought the whole thing about the wii u was it that it was going to atleast match ps3/360 in terms of graphics?
So we sacrificed up to date console graphics for a tablet controller?
who thought this was a good idea >.>
Well if their launch lineup doesn't suck I might be more interested. (suck like U.S 3ds launch titles, meh)
Personally I don't expect them to do worse when it comes to launch titles, like certain two handhelds for U.S >.> (cough)
Also we get one good pro out of the con and it's the fact that there's been no rumours about wii u playing only new games lol.

This is no suprise. Nintendo is completely out of touch and has been for a long time. They've been making bad decision after bad decision starting with the 64 (a system I loved btw but I see it's flaws). The Wii might have had fantastic sales, but among gamers it's viewed as a joke. Lets see if that hurts the Wii U or has no effect.

Personally, I'm rather apathetic about the console's overall power... though I do respect them upgrading at least enough for their games to run in HD.

What I'm worried about, as usual: launch titles, 3rd party support, online capabilities, and the return of the "waggle".

well it does seem that the graphics part is a bit off, but meh.
I never viewed wii as a joke but most of the gamers I know still do.
I want the wii for maybe only 6 games, and the rest can be used as toilet paper. :3
Loved the n64 as well but it caused hand cramps from hell when I played it to long lol, aaah good times X]

... they already stated equal to 360 specs... in other words I'm ignoring this.
Yea people never make promises that aren't 100% true.

Lol I'd still be a bit miffed if it was 360 specs jk, slightly.
also will they use a disc that can hold enough memory for these games or do a 360 and get 1-3 disks per game lol.
Chapter 1 finished: please switch discs, only 16 more chapters and discs to go through... enjoy the game. <<(dramatization)

Wouldn't surprise me. Hardware isn't Nintendos strength.

I agree that launch titles make a big difference when a console/handheld first comes out to their sells overall.
Lol the *waggle* made me laugh are you saying the motion control, or something else? 3rd party titles would help immensely as well and I don't worry too much about online stuff for consoles anymore, but a lot of other people no doubt do.

Goddamn that's sad (if it's true). In recent years, Nintendo has really been falling behind, especially in terms of hardware. The Wii was a POS that relied on a gimmick that didn't work for many types of games. Nintendo gave up their longtime fanbase of hardcore gamers for all the casuals and their money.

I don't think I will buy this, unless
1. The graphics are really good (It better look nicer than the PS3 and 360, which are over 5 years old!)
2. Nintendo makes new IP's (Yes, Mario and Zelda are nice, but please make something new!)
3. They actually get proper third party support. I'm hopeful, since they got games like AC3 and Batman: Arkham City (possibly) lined up.

king of gimmicks, ouch :/
the last two systems I bought from nintendo I was pretty disappointed -.- wii would be the whole need to make every game use the motion sensor when the game could easily have been played with only the wiimote and nunchuk, the 3ds I've only got two complaints, one being the battery life and also the lack of games flowing after launch titles, but that's normal. I'm still clinging on my 3ds for kh 3d.
Atleast with the 3ds the 3d isn't required for a game to be played unlike most games for the wii require the motion sensor to be used -waggle waggle waggle-

I usually don't care about graphics, bit if this rumor is true, it kind of just boggles me, really.
I mean, Nintendo doesn't make multi-media systems that run Blu-Ray and connect to ESPN or something, so this gives them all the space in the world to add more features, such as graphics, at least that. I just don't see why they wouldn't work on the graphics.
