Nintendo has just unveiled their newest gaming console titled the . Global president of Nintendo, Iwata came out detailing the new system and also stating that it's goal is to target every gamer
What a way to slap on someone's face... Big disappointment
... I had such high hopes that Nintendo would this time FINALLY come with something that would also appeal to 'core'-gamers, whatever that is... I was wrong. And that new controller looks awful. Full ofgimmicky stuff that I won't use, and it looks horrible to hold for longer periods of time. Why not just give us a proper normal controller!?!? Graphically, it looks on par with the 360 and PS3, which isn't good enough anymore for a new console. Overall, I'm disappointing with this whole E3 by all 3 big companies. Is it backwards compatible btw? Will we now be able to play the excellent Mario Galaxy's in HD!?
DO NOT WANT!
Anyone else during the presentation hear Iwata say something along the lines of the controller (or was it Wiiu) not being meant to be affordable?
And WiiU is coming 2012, so don't expect to play all the 2011 multiplatform games like Arkam City until 2013. The online interface is gonna have the same hiccups just like like the PS3 early on.
a portable you act take outside your home, simply genius, what will they think of next? :P
i missed for 1st have of the conference, why is this a slap in the face
they should rename it to wii F U
Posted already and this passed... wow.
That controller expensive and not very friendly to hold.
yeah i don't expect Nintendo to cheap. We may be seeing a price mistake soon
Seriously why announce it if they have no games to show.
yeah. They should have showed of a lot more then just videos.
I'm seeing alot of bad feedback on here about it so far.. Not a good sign for Nintendo..
on the contrary, everytime the guys on n4g bash something, it seems to thrive on real world... like, 3ds, wii, kinect and so on...
Maybe not the 3ds.
it's selling, and the damn thing don't even have games... when that new nintendo games get released, it will sell just like the DS...
What the hell, a handheld console , only for your home?? Wii U is definately a disappointment, but the zelda (wii u) footage they showed was Amazing.
There is actually a Home console they just never mentioned it as far as i'm aware! All they talked about was the controller and everyone (including myself) thought that was the full console! I just want a normal controller, a nice tv and a variety of quality games please!!!!!!!!
I see a lot of potential in the controller actually. As weird as that feels to type. I can see a plethora of different of ideas in my head. It's a revolution...i just hope nintendo is decidely more hardcore with these multiple screen thesis.
They haven't even talk about the system itself. WHAT. ARE. THE. SYSTEM. SPECS??!!
you didnt see that tweety-bird in flight video supposedly under Wii U rendering? But they played 3rd party games in considerably downgraded iterations. Im just as confused
They did all that right after i posted that comment. But they still haven't talked about the actual system.
Ooohhh, there is a set top system that goes with it, Nintendo didn't do a very good job of explaining that to us.
"more powerful than 360 and ps3"
How about PC...?
Notice the crowd only cheers for the games. No one cares about the funky controller.
Love how like only 1-2 people clapped for lego world rofl! Looks crap though graphically and the whole idea of it. The fact that it can be used as a mini tv ruins the creative usage of the game and turns it into nothing more than a cheap gimmick for people who play on their tvs. This is total crap. Look at the graphics too.. nowhere near on par with the 360 or ps3. Now I'm not a total graphics whore but how on earth are they going to compete in 3-4 years time with this console?
What's with the name? WiiU? Somebody needs to get fired
it's not good, but it's better than beem, connex and vita... nowdays ppl don't have creativity for names...
would have been fine with Wii Stream.
They say IT'S A CONTROLLER NOT A NEW CONSOLE PEOPLE
Its a new Console, thats the controller they revealed for it. Theres an official console that goes with that.
LOL at the haters. I'd love to use that controller with the zapper for FPS games. Ninja Gaiden 3? Yes please. Lego GTA was a bust but its going to be cool seeing what devs can come up with using this new controller. No need to pause the game for BR breaks any more either lol. Also makes me want a 3DS. Star Fox, Luigis Mansion 2 are games I've been waiting for. Nintendo won E3 big this year.
How long have these bouts of insanity been happening?
Please everything the haters have asked for was answered. We just dont know the exact specs of the syste, however its HD, has a more robust online, has more traditional control options( its just a controller with a screen it.) better 3rd party support from the start. oh but please tell me how its so horrible for you and me as gamers? We all know the minute Sony announces the Move U, most of the haters will be all for it and cant wait to see what new gameplay it brings.
I don't see myself taking this into the bathroom They still haven't answered their Online interface and pricing
lol. I like how you said all of that with a serious face. Impressive.
Well I was going to see if Nin could sway me from my PS3 and Xbox and they didnt, nothing they shows came off as appealing to me, the controller is awkward at best.
Why in the world would they keep calling a new console a controller i don't think Nintendo knows what it is for sure....
first, i said ppl would be disappointed because they were hyping themselves too much, secondly, from a non hyped perspective, it's good enough for me, i just hope they don't just start making uninspiring games just to cater to these so called "hardcore". and i find it funny that they did't show anything about nintendo games... at least we know a smash is in development...
soooo wiiu is a console + a portable device??? wtf? it seems like Nintendo was confused on what to deliver.
Its a console, but why focus on the console, if the controller is yet again the selling point. It was confusing, but in the slideshow you did see the console itself.
The system as it stands at the moment does not appeal to me. Gaming in general is slowly losing its appeal, I suppose I expect way too much. Anyone remember the first time they saw Super Mario 64? Yeah, thats what I was expecting. How foolish.
It was, by far, one of the worst console reveals I have ever seen. Firstly, no information on the console. Secondly, the biggest controller on any console ever. Thirdly, no in-game footage. Fourthly, no "demos" on the floor, just tech demos. Why even reveal a console if you have nothing ready to show on it?
