Nintendo hoping to capitalize on previous success with Wii U

Before the Nintendo Wii’s release in 2006, few people would have predicted the new motion-controlled console would manage to entice the masses like it did.

Nintendo is hoping to capture lightning in a bottle once again with a new console called the Wii U, which will be released in 2012.

The story is too old to be commented.

No one can predict will it be success or not.. I hope it will and if will have great games I'll buy it.. and yes, I love a controller, it's not as big as many says..

wrong, nintendo is hoping for it to fail *sarcasm*

I really like the idea, it's the ipad but actually using that feature to full length and making it interact with the tv. Its innovative. I still think they need to have multiple controllers, then it will truly be unique.

If Nintendo markets it right, and includes a decent price for - the Tablet consumers will be all over it.

Tablets costs 400$ because:

Build in ARM CPU's ( basically one of the best mobile CPU chips out there).
Build in GPU ( Especially with Nvidia Tegra the price goes up, or a good SGX GPU).
Build in Ram...( herpa derp derp).
Licensing fee to Google ( Android )...or just overpriced( Apple ).
Marketing investment.
Retail price.

( and then some).

This controller is part of the console itself.
I doubt the controller will cost over 100 bucks by the time it's released.

Touchscreens aren't that expensive as back in 2005.
And surely the price will be down again when it's launched.

The Wii U is a "console with a tablet- like controller". If it's cheaper, you can bet the tablet consumer base will be all over it.

The WiiU controller is not a tablet in the sense that you're using it. Well, I guess it's sorta like the Fisher Price equivalent.
