    I somehow hope not because like alot of people i paid money for it, so here's hoping they bring it this summer. The one good thing about it is that watchdogs is confirmed, because from what i have seen that is defently a blockbuster game if i have seen one. The thing is it's coming to everything else pc included, so whats going to be different on the wiiu that u wont be able to get anywhere else especially now that sony now has a table too. I know for fact there isn't going to be a smash bros anything soon, mario kart, something about zelda, and few other surprises might be at e3 this year though. Actually e3 is going to define what exactly direction the wiiu is going to go in, so that's mostly what im waiting for before i decided on any new consoles. Activision disappointed me already with no dlc again, and lying about nuketown being free on wiiu. Ubisoft seems to know what they are doing so here's hope.......don't let me down nintendo.

    I don't play hardware, I play games and Nintendo gives me the games I want. Played all my life on PC which is not much different from Xbox/PS and I am sick of "innovative" CPU and GPU power. Just want to have a good time.

    Oh, one more thing about this console. Beside the BIG plus of playing Nintendo games on it, the other day Ubisoft announced it's next-gen game Watchdogs coming for Wii U along with PS4/PC/etc... excellent news.

    Yeah, and it's easier for the developers to give you good games when they're imposed less limitations. Why do you think most of last gen's multiplats came out on 360, PS3 and PC but not on Wii (or if they did, they were generally watered down and crippled versions)? Is it because the developers had a grudge against the Wii? No, the Wii just wasn't powerful enough to run most (back then) current games, and remaking them from scratch for a single (underpowered) system wasn't worth the effort and money. Neither was making exclusive Wii games, except for cheap to produce ones, hence all the shovelware.

    If you're happy with playing just Nintendo games, shovelware, and a few good third party games, then good for you, but I for one hope that the Wii U can offer a richer game library than the Wii's.

    The worst thing that Nintendo did, is to include Mass Effect 3 in their gaming library.

    Nintendo never, ever said that. Sakurai simply said that there would be something Smash-related to show, and Nintendo agreed. Never was it said whether this would include a gameplay demo, or simply a cinematic or gameplay video.

    I think Sakurai said that only screenshots of both 3DS and Wii U versions will be shown at E3.

    Nintendo has been "in trouble" for almost 20 years now according to "the experts". Nintendo will always be around. They might not always be the most successful, but they will always have a market and sell enough. If you dont like Nintendo games... Dont buy Nintendo stuff. It's not hard really.

    It's like Kevin Smith said about movie making. You don't need to constantly have blockbusters. You just need to consistently make your money back and a small profit.

    Oops I meant viewable. "First screens" I think is what he said in the direct.

    Still, my point stands; there will be a SSBU.

    Exactly, either screenshots or possibly a trailer, but it won't he available anytime soon and most likely won't be till late 2014, so your point is invalid against his point which is there won't be a SSMB:U anytime soon...

    The Wii U won't sell as well as the Wii did but its definitely not in trouble. It needs to bring some new titles to the console before the others hit the shelves though to help drive those sales. My Wii U is an ornament beside the TV atm as there's nothing available of interest that I haven't already played on the 360 over a year ago.

    No it doesn't. Your point was that it would be playable at E3 2013, which we have no way of knowing. "oops I meant" denotes an admission that your point doesn't stand. :P

    I don't know about that. I have really been enjoying playing Mass Effect 3. Ready to ship out on the Normandy next time I play. I also like Black Ops as well. But I am really waiting for Lego City Rescue. I love all the Lego games. Probably will buy it for the 3DS as well.

    Is that what it's called in your country? It's called "LEGO City Undercover" in the US.

    Sorry I screwed the name up. Yes Lego City: Undercover, and the 3DS version Lego City: The Chase Begins. I just hate it when I'm not perfect, apparently you hate it when I'm not perfect too!
