Nintendo Could Start A Massive Gaming Trend, Again

Techologie- When Nintendo first announced the original Wii, the reception for it was rather mild. When the Wii was finally launched, not only did it sell like hot cakes, it also changed the way we game. By introducing motion controls, Nintendo created a market that never existed, and profited greatly. (Nintendo, Wii U)

The tablet itself really is a "trojan killer app" that no one will expect until they get one in their home.

Once you're playing console games on the wii u tablet, while sitting in bed or on the toilet, you suddenly realize why this concept it so great.

It also really lends itself to pick up and play gaming. I find it much easier to fit Wii U gaming into my schedule.

For a second there I read "Wii Fit U" in your last sentence. :P

But yes, I agree. It will probably be picked up as it goes. I've met a few people who were not really fond of the controller/console but were excited once they actually tried it out.

I hope it does not get too big. If it does, then we will get half assed stuff like another Kinect and move. Developers will start making more games for whatever device taking money and resources away from Other games, it will suck. Also, if I wanted to play games on a contrller with a good sixed screen, then I would BUY S PORTABLE CONSOLE LIKE THE 3DS OR VITA.

Even though Microsoft and Sony haven´t turned the Wii mote (Kinect and Move) into a standard for their console the traditional control scheme still rules the majority of games. Which is why im confident that the Wii U wont revolutionize gaming and turn the tablet controller into a standard for all games.

This is the reason why the Wii Us existence on the market doesn´t really bother me because while the tablet controller will be an interesting option the standard controllers will still be around for anyone who isnt interested in gaming with a tablet/standard controller hybrid.

I actually tried the Wii U out in GAME last week and I just didn't like the feel of the controller or the fact I was switching between screens and then using the touchscreen.

I prefer to look at one screen, not have to look at the controller and still know what I am doing. The standard controller just feels right in my hands.

I hope tablet controllers don't become the standard controller in the future.

Is anyone going to be suprised?
I mean, I think it's far too early to tell if Wii U will be "half" as successful as its predecessor. Don't get me wrong, I love Nintendo, but they are dragging their feet in so many ways. I would give it a year before Wii U really gets on its feet. They'd better make a big splash because a year from now is the next gen storm.
They're going to need to make a big push with some software or we might see some trade ins. You never know, MS or Sony could drop out, hopefully there's room for all three. More please!!

If they release or make a silent cope game like they showed in their tech demo, I may be forced to get one if MS or Sony doesnt offer the experience.
