    Default Wii U Discussion Thread

    Since the previous thread has been posted in since back in late August , Why not just start fresh here on the discussion of Nintendo's new home console called the Wii U ?

    To start things off , It has been reconfirmed that it won't be till after E3 in June that they would release the system. I can actually see why that they are going to release it after E3 is that they said the final version of the console won't be shown off till E3 2012 anyways. Hope that it would look different than that one version of the Super NES like how it looked like back at E3 2011. I though however can see that it would be released in November since the past two Nintendo consoles have been released in November.

    Probably go to end up having to wait until after my birthday in 2013 and seeing how much money I have to purchase a Wii U, depending on price. Please be about $350-400, maybe $300-400.

    The Wii U looks really cool and I can't wait to see what kind of games get announced at E3 2012. November doe seem like a good month to release the console. I seriously doubt we'll get all the same gaming franchises as this November to have new and big games released in November 2012. E3 2012 feels like a long time away, though hopefully times flies by really quickly.

    As cool as it looks, I probably won't be getting one either. It's likely to come out just after I go to Uni, so I won't be able to afford it, or a TV for that matter.

    But I bet my brother will get one so I'll just play his during the holidays.

    ...Aside from like one mario game, has anything major at all been anounced for the system yet?

    An unnamed Zelda, Pikmin 3, and the next SSB are all that I can recall.

Blame Kinect and Move for installing this into peoples' minds. Super NES was obviously an improved NES, but Wii U? Sounds like the regular Wii with a tablet controller.

    It was also a problem with the 3DS. I work at EB Games, the Canadian equivalent of Gamestop, and you wouldn't believe how many idiots thought that 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 would work for the DS. I doubt this was a problem with Game Boy Advance or DS, which had a completely different name from the Game Boy line. This is why Sony always names its consoles Playstation #, and the Vita wasn't the PortableTouch or whatever.
    How true. Also, I want your job!

    Batman Arkham City as well. Don't own an X-Box 360 or PS3, and don't plan to, so I can't wait for it.

    Also, the Wii U is getting Darksiders II (shown at E3 2011), Batman: Arkham City, Tekken, Assassin's Creed, Ghost Recon Online, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge (working title), Dirt, Aliens: Colonial Marines, and Metro: Last Light (the sequel to Metro 2033).

    As for getting the Wii U, I might eventually. I don't want to get it at launch, so I'll wait a little awhile, especially if the launch titles aren't that good like what happened for the 3DS.

    With price, it could be anywhere from $250-$400 so it will probably be somewhere in between that.

    Super Smash Bros. discussion is banned...oh wait, never mind.

    The Wii U, looks interesting. It's features are pretty interesting so far. HD graphics are nice, best to stick with what everyone else is using. I'll be getting it no matter what the price but if it come out around this time another year, even better. Not much to say.
