I agree with, Duke, I see it as less of a gimmick than the WiiMote. At least it actually looks like a 'normal' controller. I can actually see myself playing with it rather than the WiiMote which I could never get used to. Tried to play Red Steel, Smash Bros, Mario Kart and all were awful with it. Where as the Pad can add a lot of different things to a game; like Sniping, inventory, maps - something like the DS second screen did. Or it doesn't have to use it atall. So I'm definitely in favour of it, and I'm excited about it. Which hasn't happened for a Nintendo console since the 'Cube came out.

Definitely, I really think Nintendo needs to stop releasing systems BEFORE they have any games worth playing. Ok maybe some prefer to only have a mario game to play that is no different then the other regular Super Mario games, but the majority prefers good games. To be honest if Nintendo released a new Zelda game with the system, I wouldn't wait for the price drop....but I'm not paying $300-$400 for a system that has games I can just play on my 3DS or regular wii because most of them are no different than the other ones.

Nintendo has no one but themselves to blame....the same thing happened with the 3DS....I waited a year to buy it because in my opinions most of the games were lame (Except for the ocarina of time one) and a lot of people I talked to or those I saw post online said pretty much the same thing....but I wasn't paying $300 for a handheld system just to play a game I could already play on my gamecube.

Nintendo isn't getting a dime out of me for the Wii U until there is a good list of games to play.....if they're sitting around and scratching their heads trying to figure out why this keeps happening....simple solution.....CREATE BETTER GAMES TO OPEN THE CONSOLE WITH....stop making us wait 6 months to a year to actually get our moneys worth from the console. I don't care about "special effects" in my console like chatting, drawing or anything like that, I care about having a kick ass game to play on a system that gives me an amazing experience. To be honest the only thing that got a wow out of me was playing the same game while someone watches their TV shows....that is a cool addition. But Nintendo needs to stop spending a shit load of Money on special shit for the console and get these games done to released them WITH the console. Yeah I agree having things to make the pictures better, sound better and all that is important...but I personally don't give two shits about some of the stuff they spend a lot of time energy on when they could be focusing more on a better library of games at the time of release.

The way I look at it, the Wii U is playing games that the PS3 and Xbox are playing in year 7 and 8. Anyone remember the amazingly visually stunning masterpiece PS3 and 360 launch games... Oh wait, they looked like crap.

Wii U will be okay.

Nintendo needs to step their hardware game up, yes the controller gimmick is nice. But they're dealing with already outdated graphics hardware, like it or not people do care about that.

Original Wii seemed so promising, but its sucky online hurt its playability badly and lack of quality game support.. People will not jump ship until Nintendo ATLEAST gets the basics right.

I'm not interested in buying one at all, but I per chance I do it will be only for Super Smash bros. Hopefully they don't fuck it more like they already did on Brawl..

Agreed. So much greatness came from that little cube. Eternal Darkness, Killer 7, Super Monkey Ball, Rogue Leader, Viewtiful Joe, Metroid Prime, Pikmin, Windwaker, etc. What a system.

It's a shame it never sold as well as I thought it deserved. It had some fucking classics, just like the ones, Duke, mentioned, also the Resi remake and Resi 4. Plus I loved the controller.

Seems like not everybody cared about graphics, or the hardware of the console, but how much fun it brought. Sure it wasn't the greatest looking but it certainly got friends and family together. Still, I never really cared to buy one. I had the 360 so I could play online with friends. Plus I preferred the controller and the games that it offered, even though there are a few Wii games that I want.

Gamecube to me was their last great system. Not knocking the wii or even wii u, but it hasn't produced the classic like it's predecessors have.

I'm not saying Wii doesn't having amazing games. I'm just saying don't think none was produced the caliber of the gamecube.
