What is the Wii U? A launch story

It’s strange. Just a few years ago Nintendo had not just risen to but actually defined the apex of the console industry. The Nintendo DS -- which invited only skepticism prior to its launch -- had become the most successful handheld in history. Nintendo had, even more importantly, gotten swaths of average players to embrace its latest console system, the Wii.

Whether or not things will go the same way this time is an open question -- and one, frankly, this article isn’t going to answer. (Wii U)

The best article I've read about the Wii U release so far.
