Nintendo Wii U

    a recent rumor is that it will have a streetpass like feature, and support for external hard drives using the one of the 4 USB 2.0 ports that the system has.

    It will compete with today's tech...tomorrow. This thing is a joke, Ninty fans get butthurt.

    Retarded eigh? haha, but you can't blame them, no one will compete against them using mario games even 10 years to come

    I just hope the controller is redesigned. The face buttons being below the right stick seems so wrong. Also dropping the Wii name altogether would be a welcome change.

    I still do not understand why people insist on calling it a next generation machine.. it is halfway there, not there!

    In terms of sheer power, Nintendo hasn't been competition for another console since it's 16 bit days. I can't see that changing here. Maybe, just MAYBE, the Wii-U will compete with the current gen, but only since they've had time to come up to the level of the PS3 and Xbox. However, once the other new gen systems come out, Nintendo is likely to fall behind once again.

    What are you talking about? The N64 was far more Powerful, Graphic-wise than the PSone. Back in that Era, Nintendo was full of tech improvement arrogance. But What held it back was the Use of Cartridges instead of CDs. And in the last Generation, the Gamecube also was more Powerful graphically than the PS2, but once again, lack of DVD playback or full DVD Disks, held it back. This Console generation is the only Generation in which Nintendo did not pull out a Console that was actually on equal footing graphically.

    16 bit era - SNES (arguably more powerful than Genesis) 32 bit era - N64 (Um... it was more powerful than PS and Saturn)
  • Hyawatta - May 1, 2012 12:57 p.m.

    The rumor rage starts at 5x more powerful as Xbox 360. Durango = 6(XBOX360) = 1.2(Wii U) (6/1.2)(XBOX360) = Wii U 5(XBOX360) = Wii U

    The wiiu is shaping up to great console and will be truly next gen if the only thing lagging behind is graphics (seriously I see no point in this system if the only problem is graphics which won't get that much better unless have a good PC monitor)
  • Cyberninja - May 1, 2012 2:24 p.m.

    I meant problem not point.
  • Imgema - May 1, 2012 2:48 p.m.

    So, we won't be able to play our GameCube discs, but we must not worry because we will be able to BUY those games again.... I still worry somehow.
  • ncurry2 - May 1, 2012 3:06 p.m.

    I'm quite excited but I am worried that it will fall far behind in 2 years time when the next generation of PS3 and 360 come around. I am by no means a graphics whore but it's really going to impact 3rd party support (like it did for the Wii) if the Wii U is a generation behind in specs. Of course, I'll still own one and likely love it. But I'd like to love it for Nintendo's games AND other developers' games.
  • J-Fid - May 1, 2012 3:32 p.m.

    If we call it Wii RevolUtion, then does everybody win?
  • GameManiac - May 1, 2012 3:36 p.m.

    I know what isn't a rumor: The Wii U will be incredible. I'm glad I'm saving up for it already.
  • SpiritTemple - May 4, 2012 5:16 p.m.

    Same, this console is going to be awesome!
  • XanderGC - May 1, 2012 5:26 p.m.

    Nintendo has a long road ahead of it if I'm even going to consider buying another console from them and as it stands I'm not sold on Wii U yet. Wii, may you burn in hell.
  • winner2 - May 1, 2012 6:17 p.m.

    I'm liking the idea of being able to download gamecube games. If it lets me download stuff like twilight princess, mario sunshine, paper mario, and other cool ones then I'll be set.
  • slimjim441 - May 1, 2012 10:44 p.m.

    Awesome, I can't wait to repurchase a digital version of my GCN collection that will be lost forever if my system ever breaks. That's my biggest beef with eShop/WiiWare/whateverthefuck. Your system goes kaput, you lose it all.
