this thing has a lot of potential lets hope nintendo are gonna knock this out of the park, it seem like they are leaving no stone unturned with the wii U and i think thay have a hammerblow coming at e3 with the 3rd party lineup coming to this machine

I doubt it. The controller is already too expensive and adding an HD & 3D screen will make it a lot more expensive and Nintendo want to maintain it at low cost as possible. I'm not telling it wont be a great idea but not Nintendo's.

Doubt it. Nintendo wants to price the Wii U competitively so they'll keep the costs down as much as possible.

Pretty much this. I think the controller will be like $100 alone or more. I have no clue what they are planning to do with this thing. I heard each controller is assigned to the user so there is no such thing as a random controller unless you have a Wiimote or Classic Controller. I think you may need the Wiimote with this thing too. So many questions. The confusion is not really intriguing anymore.

I actually think they could get it to $50 or $60 for the controller. They just wouldn't be making any money off of it like console makers usually do.

I'm sure they'll be pulling a profit for each WiiU sold so it's not like they have to recoup losses. The only issue is selling it to consumers.

I think that there is a good chance for HD, 3D not so much...

All cost issues aside, 3D is suppose to be a 3DS feature. Why compete with your own handheld?

Might be an attempt to make the two more integral. We already know that the two devices will be compatible and the 3DS might even serve as a controller for the Wii U.

Keep the cost as low as possible, I say. HD on such a small screen wouldn't make a different at all. The Pad won't be the main play screen and will probably be in motion a lot of the time, or display 2D inventory screens or maps, so 3D would be an afterthought for developers and consumers alike.
