It's a good thing. What would be the point of 3 powerful systems that essentially have the same controller and play games all the same way?

Thats true, but the tablet controller seems so forced, like it has to be different, not because it actually improves on anything.

I agree, it's good, but it doesn't have the magic of the original Wii's reveal. Tablets are so mainstream now, I don't see the casual crowd jumping on the U in full force.

To be quite honest, I'm not sure how this is gonna work out for them in the long run. They are basically saying, we have xbox 360 multiplats (which are also on PS3) and we have a small offering of new Nintendo 1st party content. If you don't care for the new controllers there's not much to really be excited about honestly.

Then again they have a whole year to prove otherwise, which leads me to believe they revealed the system too early.
