But they're not going to show anything that wasn't at E3 2011.

"However, Nintendo will not have a booth at CES, nor does it plan to include any games, experiences or information beyond what was available at the 2011 E3 Expo."

This is really just for the media who missed out on playing the Wii U at this year's E3.
wanderson75  +   1257d ago
Yeah. But having went to E3, the lines were absolutely outrageous both after the conference and at their booth. A lot of us couldn't stand in line for two hours to get some time with it due to meetings. I'm really hoping we can get an appointment this time around.

Damn that sucks man. You should get a good amount of hands-on with it this time though. Good luck.

For me, I'm just still confused about the controller.

I mean, it seems Wii remotes work with Wii U and Nintendo are still planning to release motion games on Wii U but isn't Wii U's primary appeal supposed to be this new controller.

Like Nintendo said their next Zelda title will definitely use motionplus but can we swing Link's sword using the Wii U controller (if it does have motion sensing)?
Shok  +   1256d ago
Yea, the Wii U pad does have motion sensing.

What Nintendo is most likely going to do is simply support multiple controller inputs. They've done this before with games like Smash Bros Brawl and Mario Kart Wii.

I think the WiiMote+ will still coexist with the Wii U pad.

The wii u tablet has a gyroscope and accelerometer.....

So it has motion controls just like an iPad does.

Know your facts.

We'll find out in a couple of weeks. Just booked our appointment to get some hands on time. Stay tuned. ;)

Its a shame on nintendo. Don't bring a console 2 CES that isn't the final version. I have already seen the stuff from E3. Show us something new
Tenkay23  +   1256d ago
Wow in 7 months since its reveal at E3 you're telling me Nintendo still hasnt made progress on the console? Don't wait until E3. Give us a bone like a trailer with actual gameplay footage or something, not a port with Xbox 360 trailers. We need more info. A price point or release date at least. Don't make us wait until E3

I feel the same way

Who says they haven't made progress on the console? Whenever developers and publishers put together materials for these trade shows, it takes weeks to prepare. Why would they put together a giant info blowout at a trade show that isn't even gaming centric, where they have very little presence in comparison to e3, and have to do it again in 6 months for e3?

There's no reason for them to have their giant reveal other than to satisfy the impatience of people. It makes most sense for them to have their blowout at e3 since they do have a much bigger presence, have a 2 hour press conference to themselves, and it gives all of their developers much more time to put polish on what they're working on to have a better big reveal.

Well said.

But who says it has to be a "blowout"? Nintendo could show a new Killer Freaks level, or a demo with players using more than 1 WiiU controller.

All Nintendo has to do is show something new... anything. I love the Zelda HD demo too, but it has been 7 months since E3 and Nintendo made some pretty big promises.

what do you expect it is classic nintendo, they wait till e3 to show there huge cards, always have
wanderson75  +   1256d ago
It could be a testing of the waters too. CES has been wanting gaming to come back to the event for years.

I can't wait!
Tenkay23  +   1256d ago
You can't wait for Nintendo to reveal exactly what they did in June?
gypsygib  +   1256d ago
Shut up, you're comment is just stupid.

Obviously the next reveal will be different. You must live a very negative existence, try and keep it to yourself.
mike1up  +   1256d ago
You don't have to wait. Just look it up on the internet. It doesn't seem like Nintendo will have anything that wasn't already revealed.
Ness-Psi  +   1256d ago
I'm getting excited to see what the game's will be, I'm jumping on any bit of wii u info at the moment.
