Six things you didn’t know about Nintendo’s ‘Wii U’

Marc Saltzman:

By now you’re well aware that Nintendo has launched its next-generation video game console: the Wii U (from $299.99). You’ll likely know about its tablet-like GamePad controller, focus on “asymmetrical” multiplayer gaming and support for older Nintendo Wii titles.

But even big Nintendo fans might not be privy to lesser-known Wii U facts and features. We caught up with Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of sales and marketing, to reveal a half-dozen, little-known goodies surrounding the Wii U. (Wii U)

I still don't see a promising future for this console

Why don't you and Michael Pachter take your crystal balls and sit over in the corner.

This console is anything but overpriced, and anything but weak.

You could say it's sort of "blah"

But the main complaints I see are that the price of entry is too steep, but then they complain that it will be overshadowed.

I don't get it.

It's being sold at a loss FFS.

The Wii U is weak Flair. I dont know how you can say its not. Did you read the specifications of the darn thing?

Although I dont understand why people are causing a ruckus about that. Since the Wii, Nintendo is not focusing on cutting edge or hardware superiority.

I just hope they release some good games. I was looking at the new Mario U... and was just thinking about how easy the game is. Super Mario Bros 3 was a much better game.

Maybe i should just buy an NES. For me that was the golden age of nintendo.

the wiiu is a great system and will win next generation...haters and childish gamers will hate because all that mattters to them is pretty pictures not the actual gameplay and interaction..,.and bottom line is wiiu can do better graphics the ps3 and xbox 360 as the wiiu first generation game matches 6th generation games from the current console....wiiu has all third party developers on board....and with the gamepad the gaming possibilities are endless...haters will hate of course...the same haters will tell you that the psvita has a bright future.
