Nintendo Wii U: Is the excitement still there after problems

Product-Reviews writes: This week's confirmation that the Wii U won’t support DVD or Blu-Rays and instead using a brand new media disc is probably the final nail in the coffin for some users.

Is the excitement for the Wii U still there? Or has the problems so far put you off a purchase completely? Despite the issues, we remain confident that Nintendo Wii will get back on track and deliver a console which will end up selling millions.

Problems? What problems? They haven't said enough for there to be any problems other than the mentioned lack of Blu-ray/DVD. And how can this be the final nail in the coffin when it's the first thing they've really said?

1. Not showing the console at E3
2. Not showing any Wii U gameplay footage
3. No DVD/Blu-Ray
4. Not being entirely honest with the gaming community.

I like Nintendo as much as you obviously do pal, but you can't ignore those points mentioned above.. they know they screwed up.

All but one of those are temporary. I was referring to actual problems with the system and the only one that is actually a problem with the system (that we know of) is the lack of DVD/Blu-ray. And even that isn't a problem for some. We really just don't know enough at this point. Some might have a problem with that, but I'll be patient and hold out my judgement for later when we have some real facts.

I personally don't have a problem with the lack of Blu-ray/DVD. I have three dvd players, a Blu-ray player and a PS3 that can play Blu-rays. I'm glad Nintendo is leaving it out, it saves me a couple of bucks for something I already have.

1.they did show the console at e3

2.there were demos of ghost recon running on wiiu

4. nintendo was honest, woudnt lying = telling everyone it was wii u footage.

5.this was just a dam preview to show whats coming to wiiu...

Yeah No DVD/Blue Ray Support isn't a big deal, not showing the console at E3 isn't a big deal is just a console..... Not being honest..... when did they not do that? Its still a year off and people are saying its doomed. They didn't screw up. The system isn't even out yet.

U cant screw up until u have shown ur games running on WiiU ect u cant screw up something thats a year from release grow up from what we have seen its a proper next gen console with state of the art graphics end of that Zelda tech demo was leaps and bounds above ps3's best.
