    It seems interesting in theory, but they need killer apps before I'm really sold on it. Supposedly, they have Zelda and SSB, and perhaps more, but we need more than that.

    I'm just wondering if it'll have Gamecube compatibility as well, because if it does I'm trading the Wii in for this :3

    All I can say to this is WOW!

    I think that this is going to be a very good system from what Iv heard about it so far and also the games for it so far look pretty good and I love the idea behind the controller for the Wii U.

    Not sold.

    Nintendo's presentation was confusing and info was scarce. The alleged 3rd party support is a good sign, though.

    to be honest save a few, most of the 3rd parties showing their WiiU support were the same people last year supporting 3ds.

    I do like the system a lot though. It has a lot of conviences and features.. i can picture card games especially doing amazing stuff (maybe a spiritual sequel to baten kaitos?..) among other ideas. An extended reality HD pokesnap would also rock along with stadium again.

    some things i don't like about it though...

    I don't like the split controller interfaces. Motion gaming is still largely untapped, and an advanced console only expands the potential even more, hower not being able to integrate easily with the new controller features is distracting. Maybe we will see a second controller, a new remote.. but i still have a problem with supporting two different control styles alienating gamers and designers on which or all to support like what happened with the Wii (In other words uninspired or tacked on support, or all around lack of support or inovation due to playing it safe, or if the console doesn't come with any remote, a potential for little to no support at all).

    I also worry about SD cards, they are kind of old tech, especially outside of portables. Will there be enough flash memory or support for external accessories to have full featured modern capabilites like running games off memory or large downloadables? Or will they do a new solution like some kind of cloud storage or local network streaming from devices like a pc. I also wonder what it can really do graphically, or was that tech demo it? (don't get me wrong, foreground stuff was really impressive, but the backgrounds and draw distance weren't)

    I'm praying to high heaven it does. I have quite a few Gamecube games I'm not willing to let go of.

    Yeah, same here. That could be a make-it-or-break-it factor for me.

    I still ery happy with my old PS2 and never felt the need to get a new home console with a library to support it and neither Nintendo's offering nor Sony's interests me. So I won't be getting this.

    GameCube games are quite old. I honestly don't see the console supporting GameCube games, as much as I would like it to. Either way, it doesn't make too much of a difference to me. I haven't sold my GameCube, and I very much doubt I'd be able to sell it nowadays for a good price. So whether I let go of my Wii or not, I still have my GameCube for its games.

    Honestly, the Wii U's controller doesn't really impress either. I don't see myself picking up the console until a considerable amount of great games for it are released. Smash alone isn't much of a reason to dish out money for a new console; and I'm pretty sure this is going to be considerably more expensive at launch than the Wii was when it was first released.

    Having a quick look at the E3 event (my sound card has gone so I cant comment on the infomation) I can say that it is really just an upgrade to the Wii when you really think about it. They could have come up with a better name than the 'Wii U' imo.

    and I'm pretty sure this is going to be considerably more expensive at launch than the Wii was when it was first released.
    I think thats garunteed.

    It looks promising,however and I think if they do everytthing right then it will be a fairly good console

    It really does seem like the Wii U is what the Wii should've been, only with an additional gimmick. Then again, we don't know much about the console so far.

    Yeah, it may have potential, but, that relies on the games released, and the inclusion of certain features(such as a virtual console)

    The Wii U looks pretty advanced. My only problem with it is the screen on the controller. Sure, it's pretty unique and helpful, but when playing a game that involves both screens must be hard. Sure the DS does the same but the screens are right on top of each other while this one is at your hands and up at the screen constantly.
