    There are many people who are hyped up about the wii u.
    So let them vent their fun here!

    Once again Nintendo have amazed us with another gaming revolution,
    Personally im confused about the starting price. That controllers gonna be a bitch to replace and I wonder how chunky that must feel in my hands.
    Not to mention the fact that it supposedly has less power than 360 or ps3. But Nintendo always find a way to impress. So we'll wait and see

    First off... Where do you get the proof that it's less powerful than the 360 or PS3?
    So far those have all been rumours, there was even posted a youtube video quite enlightning regarding that fact by a hardware analystic, it was posted in the discussion about the Wii U being weaker and stuff by a member and I found it rather interesting, I'll post it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcnsG11MRE8

    Well, about the controls, I kinda agree, but honestly, all controllers since the PS2 days, have been friggin overpriced IMHO, a red wireless 360 controler to match my existing one, costs nearhly 60€ (more in some stores) so I can't really imagine the Wii U controler costing more than that... That'd be def overkill and it's not that expensive to get touchscreens nowadays, so that won't really add to the price, my main concern about it, would be the size and shape, it seems weird sure... But same could be said for the 360's controller, which IMHO is the best controller out there atm (ease in pressing butttons, triggers and their respective locations whereas with the PS2 and PS3 ones it's not so flexible) so I guess in the end, it's really unknown until it gets released or some tech demos are out.

    Rumors from anonymous companies.
    Its stimulates convo anyway which is what this is about.
    Mmmm, that controller could either be a big win or a big loss.
    When you have people around and you want to play wii U.
    Not everyone will have a wii u pad. So that may create unfair advantages and they will probably be expensive so you cant just buy 4 casually.

    I hope Ninty redesign the controller with sticks rather than nubs. I find sticks to be far superior to nubs.

    I actually agree with that, they're are fine and all, but they don't feel nor play as nicely as the ones the 360 or the PS3 has, they should use like the ones they had on the GC controler, those were pretty good.

    I'm not really seeing anything for me honestly.

    Any of the games I'm looking forward to I can just buy on my Xbox 360, everything else is either TBA or uninteresting.

    Killer Freaks From Space looked interesting though but nothing I'd buy the system for.

    I always have a Nintendo system for Nintendo software and one of the others simply for games that didn`t come out on the Nintendo system.

    So my hype-level goes hand in hand with the software that will be announced at E3 but that I`ll get the system day one is a no brainer, since my faith in Nintendo software (which is based on my experience) is quite high and I expect some killer-apps!

    I am not buying this system right away until I see many good games beside Zelda and Mario game first. No hurry for me since I am still focus on Wii and PS3 games little bit by little biy for now. There are plenty time to play into next year. Therefore, money save for myself and my apartment. :)

    I've pinned down the problem with Nintendo's slider pads. If you apply too much pressure on it, the thing will not move. Not enough pressure, and it will slip back beneath your thumb. Sticks have no such issue.

    But still, Nintendo stuck with sliders because the Wii U controller is so flat, and they didn't want you to have to stick your thumbs up. Maybe these slider pads will be better than the 3DS ones.

    As of right now, I'm still waiting for some more titles to be announced.

    I'll probably get it anyway at launch, if more good games are announced (Doesn't have the be launch games. Just want more stuff in general). They definitely are going to announce a ton of first party stuff at E3.

    I really hope we see a console redesign at E3 also. Not that it looks bad, but there's nothing good looking about it. It looks like a round Wii without the cool blue light and the ugly visible sync button.

    Why dont you learn to read?
    I had rabbids, tekken and tom clancy right there and i was listing games not dlg
    I dont just copy everything off wikipedia. Read the list before you correct me mate.

    As with the sticks vs slide pad.
    I prefer the slide pad with something like the wii U. from the way it looks a stick will be awkward on that flat pad.

    Yes!
    No, no, no, no, no. Someone made a 'Wii Speculation Thread' and people bitched at him about how they already had a 'hype' thread, and that they are the same thing. So I just posted my speculation here. I'd love another TWEWY game, but yeah, I doubt it.
