    Hoping to gain more third party support, Nintendo confirms third parties have begun working on Wii U games.

    Third party developers have received final Wii U development kits, Nintendo confirmed to Industry Gamers at CES.
    Since the system was first unveiled at E3 2011, Nintendo has promised that the Wii U will receive more third party support thanks to its controller and approach towards gaming. Some of the confirmed developers as of now include Team Ninja, Electronic Arts, Namco Bandai, Sega, Ubisoft, THQ, Codemasters and many more.

    While Nintendo has repeatedly stated that the hardware could change after last E3, it has resisted confirming any specific changes or improvements. The system will be re-unveiled at E3 2012.

    Am I the only one who thinks that the case design is too... I don't know... rounded?

    The curves really remind me of the XBox 360, of which the case I didn't particularily like either. Or the PSOne case. I prefere sharp edges, like on the Wii, PS2 and 360 Slim... But it'll do as long as it won't turn out to be a disappointment.

    I have always loved the concept, but now, we have better technology, and it looks like a waste... It looks a little like the generic brand of the wii...

    Seriously, go to the local general store, buy the motion gaming console, and I bet the Specs are better than the wii's. Here's how the gaming industry works:
    Nintendo sets the bar, usually with mobile gaming or some sort of new technology.
    Microsoft copies this, improves it, removes bulk, and put it on the market before it is perfected.
    Sony Combines the two, jacks up the price, releases a remade console for even more, and then offer free online, so they don't lose ALL of their fans.

    Huzzah. I'll look forward to third party entries. Y'know, so long as they don't end up being trash titles.

    I will be interested to see what Sega can do with a Sonic game on the console. I loved the hell out of Colors, liked parts of Unleashed, and Generations gets my stamp of approval. If they keep trending like they have, I'll actually look forward to a Sonic game for the first time in years.

    The only thing I don't like design wise is the thick border around the screen of the controller.
    I would like it to have a more compact/streamlined design although keeping the screen size.

    Another thing is the color, I want it to more unique, like the blue 3DS for example, man what I love that finish. :)

    I've always thought of Blue being a special color to Nintendo of America. Blue DSi, Blue 3DS, Blue LED on the wii...

    The only issue is if they go back to adding more characters, I hope they got over that, Sonic games only Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles and maybe Amy if in the right game as playables.

    If the console is being released at the end of the year and they're just now handing out these development kits, than the 3rd party developers have a lot of work ahead of them if they want to get some games out in time for the launch.
