that controller the way the analog sticks are positioned i can see issues trying to play games with it. Also this

high-density optical disks similar in size to a DVD

So they went with again there own format lets hope you wont have 3 disk sets to play a Mario game.
For me this console is a pass and the look is a vcr/360 mix i give it a 6.5/10.

"similar in size to a DVD" is speculation that's leading it's own life at the moment... Elsewhere (coming from Reggie) I've read that the discs will be "very large". And the Wii discs are already close to the DVD norm, so I don't think the Wii-U discs will be DVD-sized. They won't be Blu ray, but I'm sure they'll be closer in size to that than to a DVD.

Derp. Reggie confirmed that they're the same size as the Wii discs, and can hold 25GB of data on each disc.

@chanmasta (why can't I directly reply to someone...) I'm no native English speaker, but I thought it was obvious from my comment that with "size" I meant "capacity". And in that respect i'm right, like you admit yourself with the 25GB remark. Since Wii discs are no way in hell close to 25GB.


just reply to the first comment and your good
