    I was overall pretty impressed with the show. I couldn't watch it all, but from what I saw, I am not more excited for WiiU.

    Sorry to be a consistent downer on the Wii U but nothing impressive at all unveiled today in my opinion but obviously e3 will have more

    Ehh, that is good thing. The 360 controller has won several awards and praise for it's design. It's THE perfect controller. I wouldn't mind playing on a similar controller for the Wii U.

    I thought the idea of callingn the action figure "non-specific action hero" was amusing.

    Oh please, just cause you aren't best friends with the old guy.

    By the look of the tiles several first party titles are in development, including Donkey Kong and Something with Boo in it

    I liked that there was a black controller & WII U. I don't care for the white too much. It was interesting say the least. Now I want to see how it will actually be applied to the gaming.

    IMO they need to take a few pages from 360 and PS3's book. Multiplayer platform? New controller is the best addition of the conference.

    This is a rather messy thread. Just link to the one at Gonintendo.

    Controller is called the Wii U GamePad
    [​IMG]

    Features clickable sticks and a NFC Reader/Writer.

    Controller can also function as a TV remote.
    [​IMG]

    There's a seperate controller for those who might get cramps while playing with the regular controller. The Wii U Pro Controller.

    [​IMG]


    It features a menu system called Mii Wara Wara.

    - allows you the view Miis on your system and worldwide and see what they're doing.
    - ability to communicate via text, videochat and doodles.
    - instantly upload screenshots and videos of your game
    - can be accessed instantly in any game via the home button.



    The Miiverse can be accessed on your PC, 3DS and any web-enabled mobile device. It will be supported by future Nintendo systems.

    There will be a lot of 3DS news at other times.

    Well I was referring to my entire post as yours contains a lot of speculation in addition to the facts. ^_^
