Wii U? Really? If gaming is to be recognized as a culturally significant force in the mainstream media, they've got to move away from these cheesy, almost child-like names.

At least Vita has some cultural and linguistic significance.

Gotta love their reasoning though:

Wii was about WE! Therefore U is about YOU!

Thus, Wii... U!


They were better off calling it the Wii 2. Vita is actually not bad, people will call it the PSV anyway.

In all honesty, Nintendo doesn't make good names, except for the Gamecube and Gameboy

I'm not gonna say disappointment, but it was really confusing, they were talking about the controller all the time and the console barely appeared in a video lol name is definitely Wrong! call it wii-2, wwi-hd, but wii-u? WTH!?

Wii U, just call it the WU.

See, If nintendo had announced any major game, and had done something significant with the announcement of the Wii U, then they would have won, hands down. But they didn't, and were left with more questions than answers from a less than stellar performance.

My biggest disappointments:

-The name. It's awful
-Lack of demoes (though they seem to have them on the floor, which is good)
-The confusion set by the poor communication
-Lack of new IPs

I still enjoyed them the most this year and I like that they announced a lot of exclusives, especially for the 3DS.

The name sucks

The demos I can rationalize as being 1.5 years from seeing the light of day. SO likely they are saving everything in order to blow the roof off next e3

- The confusion was terrible. I must admit for 10 solid minites I wanted to kill myself because I thought the controller was the console. But then when everything was cleared up it rocked

-lack of new ips that sony and microsoft are dealing with (first party of course)

3ds,ds exclusives ruled. European wii and part US exclusives rock to

Don't forget that they're going to use a proprietary disc to hold the game data.

nintendo will NEVER have any new IPs

-Horrible Name, It's going to creat brand confusion
-0 Wii software support (at least at the conference)
-No SS trailer shown at conference
-No news on Xeno, Pandora, and TLS
-WiiU reveal probably handled in the worst way, is it a peripheral? Console? Ipad?
-Zelda 25th Anniversary was better then the rest of the conference
-No Real games shown for WiiU(pirate mini game doesn't count)
-Lack of direction, Motion Gaming! Wm+ improved zelda, now heres a tech demo where you control everything like you did pre-Wii
-Announcing a Lego game?!?!?!
-Where the hell is Pickmin 3??? Is this going to be the next Nuke Dukem Forever?
