    Included HDMI cable. What sorcery is this!? Seriously, even the PS3 only included a composite video cable.

    Maybe they really want to push the fact that the system can waltz with modern graphics, and if they included old-spec cables people might think it's a lie?

    True that, and seeing how more people have HDTVs than they did back in 2006, I can see why. No spending $500 on a Monster cable for me it seems.

    32GB SSD! HDMI cable! 1080p!
    [​IMG]
    This begins to actually sound like a modern console!

    On a serious note, I'm really eager to see what games like Zelda and Mario would look like in blazing 1080p.
    Nintendo really knows how to make use of the power of their consoles. Not only in a performance way, but also in an artistic direction kinda way. Take Super Mario Galaxy (2) and Skyward Sword for example.

    That's not a 32GB SSD or HDD, but 32GB of Flash RAM. HDDs and other devices expand the built in storage.

    There's a problem...

    SSD is way too expensive, if the devs manage to "unlock" the console to run games through backups we'll need to buy a bigger SSD :\, or maybe we'll be able to use a common external HDD, i don't know the console is not even released and i'm already thinkink about backup games O.O

    Obviously this is just a tech demo and yeah you can use Dolphin but I am excited to see Nintendo make something specifically for this rather than just upgraded visuals.

    I'll be honest this is about as realistic I'd want the characters to look.

    Why is everybody pissing their pants over 32gb of storage like its some enormous amount? 32gb is actually really really crap by today's standards, I mean look at the PS3 and 360 they have had way more than that for years. In this day in age 32gb really doesn't go a long way in terms of live/psn games, dlc and game patches etc. I would have hoped to have seen around 250gb myself, anyway I hope the wii u's memory is expandable via usb etc.

    If it's only for VC and Wii UWare, then it should be enough.
    If the Wii U allows downloading disc data, then I don't think it's enough. We also need to know if it's interchangeable. Good SSDs are becoming really cheap nowadays.

    I didn't think anyone was "pissing their pants", more the opposite from what I've read. I'm only interested in the Premium pack for ZombiU which I would have grabbed anyway and the Nintendo Premium thing is a nice addition where you get 10% discounts. And yep you can certainly pick up a USB HDD and plug it in. No propriety cards or HDD for Nintendo.

    What is this ? Sensor bar?? Like Wii's ? I thought it is not need. Look at PS3! They dont need it. Nintendo should use bluetooth instead! Sighing.

    Erm PS3 needs the EyeToy for motion control which is like a shitload more expensive and nowhere near as useful.

    And also wii motes work with the wii u so of course there would be a sensor bar for that.

    Wiimotes need the sensor bar. If you want Wiimote support, you need the sensor bar. Wii U supports Wiimotes. Therefore, sensor bar.

    Not forgetting that the Gamepad & Pro Controller are bluetooth anyway so it's hardly Nintendo skimping here.

    And that is why it's not in the basic pack.
