    You guys have been very painful to read lately. Hire yourselves an editor please (or a better one). It's "poured" not "pored".

    Its sad to see that nintendo no can compete with sony and microsoft, this underpowered machice wont stand a chance once the real next gen consoles are launched, but then again the Wii dominated the first few years of the gen so who knows

    Fuck that!!! I'm not going to buy games that I already have in disc based form. Sony did this with their psp — Vita compatibility here in the U.S and it did not turn over well. Why do you do the thigns you do Nintendo? Huh, why?

    The thing that bugged me about the Wii U controller at this year's E3, was that it wasn't deep enough in the back like most controllers are. I couldn't quite wrap my hands around the controller as the tips of my fingers were hitting the back of the controller leaving space open between the rest of my fingers and the side holders of the controller. And I don't even have freakishly big hands. My hands fit perfectly fine on an Xbox, PS3, GC, etc etc controller. Otherwise that screen looked really good, touch sensitivity was fine, since they've had plenty of time to tweak it since working on the DS line.

    Of course, the illusive "insiders"

    Nintendo have distanced themselves from the mainstream Console Cycle. The Wii-U may be half a generational leap but when next generation hardware gets cheaper again they can jump half a step forward. Or they may choose to explore streaming or another innovation. Backwards compatibility is a huge boon. I still play games on my Dreamcast, so being able to play games in my Wii collection on a new machine will be great. I doubt they will be re-rendered in HD but we can hope. Let's also hope they can integrate existing VC / WiiWare purchases into the new online system. Software is vital. I am not too interested really in titles I can play on my PC rig*, but would love to see developers work to Nintendo's strengths in terms of 'in the room' social gaming. Especially racing games where the Wii has been weak - Trackmania has been a hit with gamers and non-gamers alike in this household. *Having said that I might be interested in playing those titles on the Tablet, and my PC is getting old so the WiiU could replace its upgrade cycle if the quality is there.

    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.
  • Rub3z - May 1, 2012 11:45 p.m.

    No... won't it be linked to your account? Thus, wouldn't you still be able to re-download it?
  • J-Fid - May 2, 2012 7:38 a.m.

    That's why I save as much as I can on SD Cards. Just in case.
  • slimjim441 - May 2, 2012 12:43 p.m.

    Save data for MOST games can be backed up on an SD card, but any game you buy fro WiiWare etc. is linked to the system. You can back up the game data, but it will never work on another system. And Rub3z, it doesn't link to an account. You can only resister games in your account, which means nothing.

    Your insinuating that nintendo will charge you for a game and will make you pay again if you ever lose that file. Chances are that they will have a place where you can redownload titles that are linked to your account.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • J-Fid - May 1, 2012 3:32 p.m.

    If we call it Wii RevolUtion, then does everybody win?
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Cyberninja - May 1, 2012 2:23 p.m.

    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.
