    Right Lily mentioned in this topic: http://gbatemp.net/topic/324334-rumour-wii-u-less-powerful-than-ps3xbox-360/page__pid__4168663__st__30#entry4168663

    that there was no Wiiu forum, but with all these rumors running around etc. I think it would be a nice time to create a Wiiu forum.

    Wiiu General Discussion


    And I voted yes.

    I see no point, it'd be just as inactive as the Vita forums were. I'd rather wait until we get more info, a ton more info. Launch dates, launch titles, features, etc.

    Hehe, don't you think the GBATemp mods haven't already thought about this /discussed this?

    Lets just wait, nothing really substantial has been released yet about the WiiU, only how powerfull it might be, how it looks like, some games that are coming to the device and when it maybe is going to be released.

    We still don't know that, so far it's all been rumors.

    Etheboss what's your point? Why can't we discus it as well?

    *checks the 3DS forums*

    The 3DS forums were VERY active before it even launched! This is not a Sony forum mate.

    Yeah, because we knew more about it. We know jack shit about this.

    EDIT: Let me put it to you this way, say we do get a discussion forum. The contents would most likely be:
    "RUMOR: WIIU MORE POWERFUL THAN 360/PS3"
    "RUMOR: WIIU LESS POWERFUL THAN 360/PS3"
    "RUMOR: WIIU MAY GET [INSERT GAME NAME HERE]!"
    "RUMOR: WIIU MAY GET [INSERT GAME NAME HERE]!"
    "RUMOR: WIIU MAY GET [INSERT GAME NAME HERE]!"
    "RUMOR: WIIU MAY GET [INSERT GAME NAME HERE]!"
    "RUMOR: WIIU MAY GET [INSERT GAME NAME HERE]!"

    Along with a bunch of "What would you like to see/hear/smell/eat on the Wii-U? threads. It's just pointless.

    Wikipedia disagrees with you.

    Also, I vote yes. The forum is going to have to be created within the next 6 months anyway, so why not now? Every day that passes more and more Wii U info / rumours will be leaked / announced, and more and more people are going to be wanting to speculate about it. There's is no disadvantage to opening one now, so why not?

    Etheboss, check who voted for yes...

    >.> the staff seem to like it! Though the old staff do.

    Hahahaha that made me laugh Suprgamr232, before the 3DS was announced a LOT of crap was around here with rumors. But why do we need to know more before we can even start a forum? I can easily prove to become a handy tool on this forum!

    Wizerzak you've ninja'd me! =3 with a better post! Nice work.

    I don't see no harm in having a section just for Wii U. It would keep other areas clean because we'll be coming to a point where a lot of news is going to leak out pre-E3.

    You either post there, or you don't.

    It's too early for a Wii U forum. IIRC the 3DS forum was only created 1-2 months before its release (or at least after Nintendo announced the release date), so why should we get one now?

    Nope it was April 2010, around 11 months before release. Wii U will be released in 9 months.

    Yeah, we totally need a forum for people to post threads like

    "When will the WiiU be hacked??//>>?"
    "Where are the WiiU ROMzzz??//?"
    "How will the WiiU be hacked???>>??>?!"
    "What emulators will work on WiiU???///?/"

    And other useless speculative crap from people who haven't a clue what they're talking about.

    Actually just under 8 months.

    Also, @[member='SifJar'] I doubt that will happen, it didn't happen much with the 3DS and even less with the Vita.

    Take a look here and look at the number of threads that were moved to the 3DS section when it was created.

    Oh sure, rumors, speculations, jokes, announcements about 4 or 5 pages in, more speculation, more rumors. We definitely haven't had that much "discussion" about the Wii U yet, cuz we don't know jack shit about it.

    Also, posting a Wikipedia article was probably not the most intelligent thing you could do when trying to prove me wrong, especially when there wasn't a lot of factual info in it. Figured I should throw that in here as well before I forget.

    Fine, if you don't think it's worth talking about, be that way and don't post in the Wii U sub-forum.

    There's literally NOTHING to lose by creating one. It frees up space from other forums, creates a more centralised place for people to find out info regarding the console, and encourages people to talk and speculate about what is to come. So my question is 'Why not?'.
