It seems they want to concentrate on their E3 efford.
Or they just don't have anything to show so they're not wasting anyone's time with stuff we've already seen on numerous presentations.
At least they will show the final product(Wii U) on E3
0/10 for news posting effort.
Nintendo probably don't want to waste resources.
*If* they resolve the technical difficulties they're having with the controller. If not, we'll see another shabby prototype.
Sorry if I sound ignorant but I can't remember a time when someone dropped a huge bomb @ Gamescon. They usually wait for E3 or TGS.
They are having issues? I remember something like that months ago, but it was later confirmed as a rumour. I think.
I find the OP post more reasonable. ~3 months to e3 with not even a thing to show if they want too?
If you are talking about the rumors, there wasn't any proof of Technical difficulties. Back up by that dev impressions, I believe there wasn't.
At least not that badly.
I stopped trusting the opinions of developers when they started blatantly speaking out of their asses. Some say the WiiU is stronger than current-gen (and if the specs we know so-far are real, it sure as hell is) and some say it isn't, some say that the streaming of video to the controller is blazing fast, some say it's mind-numbingly bugged. As of today, I don't really "believe" anything I read about this console but I do remember reading about some Nintendo representative stating that they're switching chips in the remote periodically to see which one will do the task best, and this involves alot of re-designing, so I'd call that an issue.
Most rumours/news about it being more powerful come from known developers and 3rd parties. Most rumours about it being underpowered come from "unknown" or "anonymous" people. Seriously, take a look.
Let's have a look back at 2005-6, shall we?
So many Metal Gear Solid games for the Wii and PC, oh yes...
*1* Sakura Wars for the Wii throughout its entire lifespan, the game barely used the controller's features from what I remember.
Thanks for the pledge, we sort of wanted good games though.
Probably why you're beefing up the WiiU, huh?
With all that said, I say "thanks, but no thanks" to what developers say before the release. I want to see the console with my own two eyes running actual games, preferably I want to play on it a bit before I have an opinion about it.
These developers are talking about the new concept Nintendo came up with - Motion Control. I don't see any developer commenting about the Wii(Revolution)'s horsepower on this quote, only the last one, saying that it doesn't matter.
That wasn't what I was highlighting. What I wanted to say was that every developer will always be overjoyed when new, interesting hardware is released and will spout all sorts of bullshit just for the sake of saying something and whether they will follow up with what they promised and whether their opinions were truthful to the factual state of matters or not is to be determined in the future.
I'll quote some stuff for ya:

Some people actually stated about the console performance, and Nintendo replied to the media with the same argument as they did with the Wii:
I see how the rumour that it is more powerful is more probable than the one that it is less powerful than current-gen consoles. I can read, I frequent this site, I've read those articles. I'm just not interested in rumours. I can't possibly be more clear than that.
Yeah, they are just rumours, I agree with that. But SOME said it can outperform current gen consoles, and they were not rumours, seriously.
Anyway, let's wait for E3 to see the final thing
I know it can outperform the current generation - I'm a specs nut, I realize that. We don't have the *official* specs though, just what we gathered so-far, that's why I'm not judging the system, haven't I already said that?
opinions opinions opinions, and they are not based on anything...
do you seriously believe they dont have anything to show?
I seriously believe they don't have anything *new* to show, not until the product is finished and ready for shipping. They have better things to do then going back and forth with demo's.
Maybe they just wanna keep the surpise for the epic moment(E3). ;D
