I thought that the controller was the console until they showed that video of the devs and Peter Moore referred to the console and controller as two separate things. Thanks Peter!
I'm still confused.
this confusion just ruined the whole conference
Same here, first I thought it was just the controller of the new console, but it was all about the controller, and with the size of it I thought the controller was actually the console, lol I'm lost... @prdn way at the bottom *PSV*
Who's Me if wii U? huh, Answer me! :[
I think the console is the hub & muscle of WiiU, but the brains, heart, & soul is in the controller. The controller should be your pokedex. It goes with you everywhere. It's not a random controller, it's you personal ID tablet that holds all your info. I kind of like this concept. I see big things for it. Going back to core gaming strong.
@ NukaCola... That makes sense, I wish Nintendo would have explained it better during the press conference.
Only a moron would write something like this. They showed the damn console during the press conference. Are you people BLIND? I saw the thing as soon as it was shown sitting there. It was sitting next to the TV during the promo video and they showed it multiples time. JUST LOOK PEOPLE. There are also pictures of the console online.
Yeah it's not hard to figure out. It's a new console and the controller has a screen on it. Thats it.
I know, right? What's the confusion?
Come on, the controller is bigger than the wii and way after showing it, they showed a video with the console far behind the controller :P
I think most people including myself missed the brief moment they showed the actual console (if it was ever shown anyway) or maybe confused it to be a Wii due to the similarity. Also, in the beginning videos, they were showing Wii games on the controller and using Wii remotes so naturally people got confused.
It looks just like a Wii though from those videos, it's easy to confuse and with them not mentioning a console until much later on it's not hard to think they're announcing just a controller.
no hes speaking rhetorically. Honestly, Nintendo seems confused on what they wanted to do with the Wii successor. It looks like a portable gaming device that syncs with your console to your T.V.... see the problem here?
don't people think nintendo would go its a nintendo tablet its the next nintendo hand held ovb. he said like 10 times it streams content from the system to the controller.... id like to take the place of some of the dummies sitting in the crowd they obviously don't understand terminologies.
exactly!!, they kept saying "controller" and "system" as separate entities hell you could see the system in the damn promo videos!! some people are just blind and retarded I guess :/..
How can anyone be confused? They showed the damn console several times. They even SAID it was a console. God there are some retards around these days.
http://www.blogcdn.com/www.... vs http://i62.servimg.com/u/f6... (Ignore the red arrow) But how could you not get confused with these two?
only dummies didnt see the console. Its BC with wii and gamecube everyone Were could I fit a wii cd in that sucker controller? LOL
the controller it's big enough to fit 60 discs lol
Lol, I thought I was the only one confused. I dont feel so stupid now.
i was confused to at the concept. wats the point of having the console? might as well added all the features to the controller and have a syncing option to a TV.
but that is one big ass controller though, doesn't look very comfortable either.
Yeah, I thought the same. But impressions so far (engadget) is that is light and comfortable. It better be .... Cause I agree, that is one monster size controller
yea I saw a preview on IGN as well saying its a lot more comfortable than it looks and light as well. Thats good, now just need to see real games in action.
I was confused too, they obviously got it wrong if so many people are complaining? I didnt see anything on the Gamespot live stream
Well, to be fair, I remember when the Wii was first announced, and everyone was complaining about the controller, and how it was going to fail. And we all know how that one turned out.
I'm sure MS and Sony's next console will have larger screen on their controller, and all of you fanboys will praise it for that. XD
Sad, in a funny sad, more funny sort of way.
they were trying to apeal to the hardcore crowd with that??????Cant imagine people playing MW3 and BF3 with a big square with nubs as anolog sticks.......maybe its just me Nintendo R.I.P
"These are prototypes, not real games. But I can announce one game. . . LEGOS!!!" Yeah, I wont be buying a WiiU at all.
Did they say if it would play gamecube games?
This is clearly some sort of mash up between a console and a controller. It doesnt look like a console to me, it looks like a handheld ipad/ds mix. This isnt really a good idea for a home console but its great for the handheld market. Guess nintendo is handhelds only now.
Sony's Execs to engineers: "D'oh, a screen! How come we never think of that? Must make more badass controller for the PS4! Meanwhile, tell Kevin Butler to mock every controller with built-in screen!" Finally, at E3 2014 all fanboys are seen cheering the newly launched PS4 with a 15" vaio as controller.
this whole thread is probably the most entertaining comments section i've read all year.
well im not really confused if you think about it is just like an ipad and apple tv in that all it can stream data to each other and can control one another, except it has buttons :)
wow. i thought they were clear how the new system would not only implement the new huge controller but also wiimote/wiimoteplus as well as the nunchuck, and wii classic pad. on top of that the balance board and zapper. not all that difficult folks. start taking you ADHD meds more frequently.
