    Hope Nintendo will change the name because parents are stupid, they won't buy this for their kids, if they think it's just an add on to the Wii. Wii U, sucks anyway. And the design of the controller is so poor.

    Does anyone has a username/pass for the press kit? I already tried golin/harris and nintendo/guest (Ones that have worked with past press kits) but didn't get anything.

    So Smash Bros. on a handheld? Now that's a first timer! Great news for the fans, I never liked the series that much myself but great news for them!

    Hopefully that game will show the online capabilities of the 3DS for the first time!

    What he means is if they keep the name of the previous console and add onto it (without a number like DS 2 or Wii 2) then people will think it's an add-on or revision, just like what happened with the 3DS.

    Good conference over all but it was imo too much future-talk (which normal Nintendo doesn`t do as much) and some games like Paper Mario 3D and such were missing.

    Also very disappointing that there is nearly nothing for Wii announced! Where is Last Story [​IMG] At least we European (and pirates [​IMG]) get Xenoblade...

    LuigisMansion2, SuperMario3D and Kid Icarus really stood out though. All three looked phenomenal.

    But ZeldaSS is still my most wanted. I hope they`ll have a new demo on the show floor!

    Nintendo: 8/10

    But that is what it is. I mean, look at the sony. PS1, PS2, PS3. All sold well, and they kept "Playstation" Through and through with just adding 2 and 3.

    They should be. They stated all Wii accessories are supported. Now if they allow me to plug in the classic controller directly to the "new" controller rather than tethered to a wiimote...

    That would be awsome! We could use that screen as a mini-tv and use classic controller to play lol.

    Exactly, people notice they are the next console because they have numbers. The Wii U dios admittedly sound like an add-on, and the 3DS just sounds like another revision, not a major next generation console like PS1 to PS2, which are notable for their numeric endings and thus people instantly now it's the next iteration and not the next revision.

    They did say you could use the balance board with just the remote, so I guess all Wii controllers will work using the Wii-u controller as a screen.
    Am I the only one who doesn't mind the name?! When 'Playstation' was first announced people thought it was a creche or something. And 'X-Box'?! Sounds like something that USED to be a box, and now isn't.

    But that doesn't make much sense, if they were known for there numeric endings, why didn't they just name the ps vita the psp 2? Really, if people are going to make such a big fuss over names, then why buy the console in the first place?

    Well, all-and-all, nintendo did good...but didn't really bring it. i feel like they won by default because they are the only one that had a new console.
    maybe 7/10...also no wii games, so we have nothing nintendo to play(3DS aside)until 2012.
