Talking Point: The Importance of the Wii U Press Event

This Thursday’s Wii U press event is a big deal for Nintendo.

After E3 2012 I'm not hoping for much in terms of new game announcements or big surprises. Just pretty much, price, launch games, possibly some details on the whole Miiverse online functionality thing and more details on games we already know about I'm guessing.

I will be happy if Nintendo manages to surpise me with something big though.

To like this console, I had no interest in the wii and I have missed nintendos exclusives. Hopefully they will make me want to buy this console

And if you do you can buy all the Wii games you missed and play them then.

win-win! ^.^;
