    What do you think about new Wii U console?

    I'm kinda get disappointed. They just show a new controller as innovation. No technical stuff, no new style gaming, no nothing.

    No. It's not just the controller. It's a whole full-fledged new console with a new controller to boot.
    Launches: 2012
    Size: Approximately 1.8 inches tall, 6.8 inches wide and 10.5 inches long.
    New Controller: The new controller incorporates a 6.2-inch, 16:9 touch screen and traditional button controls, including two analog Circle Pads. This combination removes the traditional barriers between games, players and the TV by creating a second window into the video game world. The rechargeable controller includes a Power button, Home button, +Control Pad, A/B/X/Y buttons, L/R buttons and ZL/ZR buttons. It includes a built-in accelerometer and gyroscope, rumble feature, camera, a microphone, stereo speakers, a sensor strip and a stylus.
    Other Controls: Up to four Wii Remote™ (or Wii Remote Plus) controllers can be connected at once. The new console supports all Wii™ controllers and input devices, including the Nunchuk™ controller, Classic Controller™, Classic Controller Pro™ and Wii Balance Board™.
    Media: A single self-loading media bay will play 12-centimeter proprietary high-density optical discs for the new console, as well as 12-centimeter Wii optical discs.
    Video Output: Supports 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i. Compatible cables include HDMI, component, S-video and composite.
    Audio Output: Uses AV Multi Out connector. Six-channel PCM linear output through HDMI.
    Storage: The console will have internal flash memory, as well as the option to expand its memory using either an SD memory card or an external USB hard disk drive.
    CPU: IBM Power®-based multi-core microprocessor.
    Other: Four USB 2.0 connector slots are included. The new console is backward compatible with Wii games and Wii accessories.
    (Taken from the Nintendo E3 2011 Press Release)
    Games announced: Smash Brothers, Battlefield 3, Batman: Arkham City, Assassin's Creed, Ghost Recon Online, Darksiders II, Dirt, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Metro: Last Light, Tekken, Ninja Gaiden 3, FIFA 12, Madden 12, Driver, Lego City Stories
    Other facts: (GTTV interview with Reggie, thanks to hiero and others)

    • The price point of the system will be competitive to the current prices of the PS3, 360 in terms of value
    • The games shown for Wii U at the show were actually PS3 and 360 versions but the Wii U will look the same or better
    • No BluRay Support
    • Controller's screen is single-touch
    • Backwards compatible with the Wii's Games, but no upscaling is done
    • Nintendo Online system to be announced by the end of the week

    Ummm.. In case the OP missed it just one possible feature is that you are able to look left and right on the new controller and see what is around you vs just whats in front on the tv screen. I can see HUGE possibilities for games. One of the biggest issues with playing multiplayer split screen was screen watching. This fixes that. Imagine playing your buddy in Madden and he cant tell what play you called for once!

    I think peeps are so mad about the name of the thing that they are ignoring the possibilities.... I dont care what its called as long as it kicks ass, and I think this machine just might have that potential.

    Is the name staying as Wii U? I figured that was just their code name, similar to Revolution. I think naming it the Wii U will just cause people to think it's a small upgrade to the Wii.

    Yep it is just a Wii U, same as a PS2 went to PS3, and XBOX to XBOX360.

    The peeps caught up in the console wars have an interesting way of looking at things. PS3 and XBOX360 had their expectations set high even before they hit the shelves. To be honest, Wii turned me off at first. Then I heard my friends talking about playing it at someone else's house and how cool it was. After playing I got hooked. Names dont mean a thing. Look at the numbers to find out how many people "played with their wii" and you will see the reality of the situation.
