First image and details available:
so how much is that controller going to cost, like half the price of the actual system?
They are going to confuse the casuals with this. Many will think this controller is another portable gaming system, but it's just a controller with a screen on it, how pointless is that! PS Vita will own that by itself, just by being able to play it's games fully on PS3 then being able to transfer progress to the cloud and carry it on with the PS Vita wherever you go. That is what people will think "Wii U" (really, people thought PS Vita was bad!?) does, but it is just a controller with a screen stuck to it. --Also, will this mean games will now be made to run well on that small 6" screen!?
The Wii is officially dead. Just like MS did with the Xbox. They didn't even announce one game.
they announced a new smash bros will be made
ya, for 3ds and WiiU
Announced is the keyword. When will it come out?
announced last year.
will be release this holiday.
that's it? This crap was even worse than MS's conference and by a huge margin! No Zelda gameplay, no game presentations at all, just Reggie talking and talking and talking... That guy can sell ice in Alaska.
How can you be announcing a new console (or whatever) and lay out a completely boring presentation
Because the console itself was boring? yay, they got a whole bunch of 3rd party developers they hugely ignored on the wii, convinced them to port their 360/ps3 games that are coming out this christmas, and put them on their new console a whole year after most gamers would have already played and forgotten them. They'll get initial 3rd party support and then forget about them like the Wii.
It was underwhelming. Although it is great to see third part studios working on Nintendo consoles, finally, but nothing that would make me switch over and buy a....Wiiu.
From what I've heard it's effectively a controller with a screen. Hardly ground breaking innovation. Also, it looks like it'd be painful on the thumbs to play for more than an hour.
Full of fail,It's not even funny,even I feel trolled by this.
this is an absolute disgrace
I was very surprised about the multiplatform games announced. Arkham City, Metro:last light, Tekken......jeez. If you can seriously play those on the controller without a TV then that is just INSANE
Well you'll be playing it on the console, but you don't need a tv. As Reggie said it's not a hand held gaming device, it transmits wirelessly from the WiiU consol. So there is bound to be a limit to how far you can go from it with the controller...
Yeah, I caught that...lol It will just be VERY awesome to play BF3 on a controller when my girl needs my PC or is watching the TV.
Until the console has been released and I've seen exactly what developers manage to come up with, I will remain... unconvinced.
Am I the only one to think it's awesome? lol
If no one thought the 'swallow' tech demo was impressive than I lost all hope for gamers. -End statement
nintendo takes 1 step forward and 3 steps back... what happened to all the " wii 2 will be more powerful than ps3 and 360" i admit the controller is a nice little gimmick but how well are those hd games gunna look on that small screen? it took nintendo 5 years to be able to play 360 quality games, congrats nintendo, in a couple years when the successor to the 360 and ps3 are launched you will be in the same spot you was with the original wii.
The lack of games was sad. 3ds had a good showing, but there were no games for the Wii and only tech demos for the wiiu. did anyone else notice that they never actually showed the wiiu? just the controller. something seems not right.
I think that they got hard at work with the controller technologie and got that pinned down, but the don't know what they want to do with the console. I guess that the look will depend on how powerful they decide to make it.
E3 in total was disappointing this year...
Where are the specs for it? Imo it just looked to be on par with the 360 and PS3.
That's what I'm afraid of. Every thing running on it looked to be of this gen quality. I like the controller idea, but this is disappointing. My previous excitement has faded...
reminds me of the dreamcast controller. ^_^
Looks cool but how awkward and heavy is it going to be to play with.
just watched the conference very confused.is it just a controller for the wii or an actual console,the graphics demo with the bird flying about was not wii graphics but i didnt see a new console.anybody any wiser please let me know whats going on.
here.. http://www.engadget.com/201... even i was confused.. because all they showed was the controller.
I'm not getting this - is the controller an essential part of this console or is there a default pad?
This seems a little forward, but I can almost bet the PS Vita will be capable of similar game play options.
That's a big sucker, almost the size of a tablet
Say what you want, but i cannot wait for this.
So what happened to 'more powerful then the 360 and PS3'? All the ports looked severely low level. Are you telling me that to this day Nintendo can't just this once push the raw power envelope? Take a chance and make an HD console? What is the point playing NG3 on a console that looks worse when I have a perfectly good PS3 right here to play it on?
Looks like an Ipad with buttons. Im worried about those circle pads. You probably wont be able to click down on them.
They are going after the tablet market too.
And here I thought I'd be able to play using my toes... like using some kind of toe-roller, someday, someday.
