    The Xbox 360 and PS3 were way more powerful than the Xbox and PS2. I feel the Wii U is sort of like the Kinect and PlayStation Move. It's like an accessory that allows you to play games that specifically need that accessory, like the Wii Balance Board on a larger scale. But that's just my opinion.

    Wii-U isn't just a new accessory. It's a new console that is much more powerful than the Wii:

    I know that, to me it just seems like another controller with a little bit more than the Wii can already do.

    The WiiU, just as the Xbox360 and PS3 before it, is more powerful than its predecessor.

    Well, yeah. It just doesn't seem to have the same huge improvement qualities that the Wii had compared to the Gamecube. I'm probably comparing it to that.

    It's quite a bit more than that. The interaction between the screen on the controller and the television is quite unique. And the ability to play the games directly on the controller, without a TV, is certainly something that has me interested.

    If you have a PS3, you can do remote play with a PSP and a PC.

    That isn't anywhere near what they are doing with the Wii-U controller. The way it seems to enhance gameplay is something that hasn't quite been done before.

    Since I don't have a Wii, I think I will be getting this one in the future. The lack of Gamecube compatibility is a bummer, but since I don't have Gamecube games in the stores where I say at, it's probably not a big deal anyway. So some notables I will be missing are Metroid (not that I am into it), Paper Mario, Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Mario Sunshine. It's too bad, because some of those games sound awesome.

    Anyway, the Wii U is a very fabulous piece of hardware to try out, because the controller has potential for some great ideas. I like the ideas they have shown, like using the controller to catch the ball and hitting the golf ball with the Wii-mote. A Mario Party on the Wii U would be an interesting idea, though!

    So, I am psyched if I get more fantastic details of this machine.

    Thanks for reading.

    I'm starting to get a headache just looking at that thing - It's so complicated!!
    It suddenly occurred to Domino that Team Rocket was a massive game of Telephone, using actual telephones, with real-life results that could be really damn scary (for other people, of course).

    The GameCube Metroid titles have actually all been ported to the Wii.

    Outside of Japan, though, only through Metroid Prime Trilogy, which has since been discontinued.

    I dont think its that its just the lack of infomation.We got told so much about the controller and not the system itself.
