uff....I was thinking it was just a new controller (wich looks exactly like the stuff I saw on neogaf)...lol, god thanks its new hardware too!
Games are HD and graphics are fine, but its clearly no leap forward...looks on par with 360/ps3

would love to get some technical details

I was really iffy about it but after seeing the tech demo with the bird and the announcement of EA and all those developers supporting it I am incredibly excited for it.


Not sure if I heard Iwata correctly but did he say that the WiiU wasn't meant to be afforable??

It's a new console with a big controller.

At first I thought it was just a new peripheral for wii and thought they should have just called it Wii DU (in short we do you). But then saw the games and it was alright.

new hardware (featuring HD) with a new controller, which looks to be 100% compatible with old Wii games.

Terrible name, Massive controller, doesn't look like a big leap over the graphic capabilities of the PS3 or 360 but the new control type and the fact that each controller can be used independently as it's own screen is cool and being a Nintendo fanboy I'm still excited for it!

Looks really nice.

I think it is important that they`ve updated the graphical ability and still have consistency between the older consoles, so they can have content from the past and also how it was played in the past, but have content from 3rd party as well, which previously wasn`t on the Nintendo platform simply because the graphics weren`t on par with the industry standard.

Also at first I thought WTF is this name but when Iwata said WiiU a few times it grew on me very quickly. Quicker then Wii. IMO sounds great!

But why didn`t they show the system itself. I bet it will look like a Wii with just the interior changed... Would be fine by me since I like that clean design.

There is much to be reveal from the system though so hopefully it won`t take to long til we see some new things from/for WiiU!

Ryu must love the Wii U.

Kidding aside, I'm am pretty impressed with the console. If you can also stream Gamecube games to the controller, I'm sold.
