    Wii U Launch

    This Sunday is the US launch of the new Wii U. I've been waiting for this since they first announced it. Good thing I preordered mine before they quickly sold out. It looks like it's going to be pretty awesome.

    Is anyone else here getting one?

    Not unless you're buying

    I'm not a console fan but there are a few games like Uncharted etc that are very tempting.

    Ever since I started playing games on consoles, I've had a lot less headaches with Linux.

    The thing I'm liking about the Wii U is that Nintendo is finally getting back to being able to satisfy the hardcore gaming. It looks like it will work out well for party games and hardcore. The videos for Zombi U look pretty awesome for how the Gamepad works with the game.

    I am happy with my PS3 and PS Vita, Nintendo was cool back in the 80's and 90's now they just rehash old games and slap a new number on it. =\ Sony is working on a app for the PS3 that will make the vita act like a Wii U controller no new info other then that at this time.

    The difference is that there won't be many games that take advantage of it, because the game devs don't want to make games that people without the Vita can buy. On the other hand, about every game created for the Wii U will take advantage of the Gamepad because it's integrated and the main feature. That, plus the fact that Wii U's hardware is newer and better. Also, they're not just only rehashing old games. There is a lot of awesome stuff coming out for the Wii U, including an unprecedented number of 3rd party games.

    But I can understand if you already have a PS3 and Vita that you wouldn't want to lay down the cash for another system. But I'm pretty stoked about the possibilities of the Wii U.

    I will for sure get a Wii U sometime within the next year, I just love Nintendo consoles. Though for now, my PS3 and Wii are more than enough to keep me occupied, until some more games come out, and maybe a price drop

    Yeah, I'm pretty stoked about having an HD Zelda game. But who knows when that will happen.

    Re: Wii U Launch

    I played it at gamestop. What's the point of releasing a console that is capable of playing modern games but then giving us a controller the size of a tablet and the wii mote combo as the only options for playing these games? The only game they had was Rayman and I found myself constantly having to look down from the 40" tv in front of me to the tiny tablet in my hands. This equals fail for me. Some companies will probably figure out good controls for it but until they come out with a controller that I can play for more than half hour with then forget it. Edit they may have games like Call of Duty and Batman that look slightly better than what is already out there but, there is no way in hell i'm playing them with that piece of crap controller. If they released a better controller and continued to charge $50 instead of $60 for games for the next year until the new playstation or xbox came out i would consider it. But right now forget about it

    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.
