The controller isnt bad, I got to play on the Wii U at a presentation I was at yesterday. The screen is easy to use and you dont really think about it so its very natural right away. The speaker in the controller would be good on Aliens with the scanner bleep and as for the camera...meh. I did wonder how long the battery will last though with so much happening
I wouldnt be surprised if Wii U doesnt do well later on. I bought an awesome looking Black Wii years ago and I havent bought a single game for it. I only got it for SSBB. Hell if the Wii U had a SSB game with it at launch I might have been a sucker and bought it lol.
