    What I want to know is, can you connect more than one of those new controllers at once?

    The Watson part is funny lol, so does that mean our Wii U will be more intelligent than us?? I hope it doesn't talk. :X

    The Wii successor should at least be as strong as the PS3, because in a few years the PS4 will come out and then all the hardcore games like GTA and CoD will be developed for that kind of hardware and power. The Wii U really has to have an enormous power boost to keep up.

    Stop comparing what? An IBM rep says it's got a CPU that can compete against the 360's/PS3's why wouldn't compare because it's not a PC? You realize game systems also use processors...

    And I doubt it would only support one Wii U controller...of course more demanding games might only allow one.

    Rumors had it that local multiplayer games would have the option to stream each player's screen to their respective controller, instead of using splitscreen. Can't do that if you can only connect one [​IMG]

    I really hope you can use more than one. We might finally be able to play tactical games on a console with cheating.

    "proprietary high-density optical discs" - no DVD backups then [​IMG] Should hopefully make piracy at least a little harder.

    It doesn't surprise me that they are opting to use their own discs for a new console. I just hope the discs are reasonable for storage and will meet the requirements of future games without multiple discs.

    That just means they're using bluray or some other kind of DVD that only works on their system. The Wii used proprietary discs too (which were just special DVD's).

    Hm, running over disc-based systems...
    Playstation - CD.
    Dreamcast - GD-ROM (modified CD file structure and tighter lines, modified PC drives can read/burn).
    XBOX - ???
    Playstation 2 - DVD, unmodified, right?
    Gamecube - Mini-DVD, modified a bit.
    Wii - DVD, modified a bit.
    360 - DVD, modified a bit or plain jane?
    Playstation 3 - BD, plain jane?
