The DS and 3DS look primarily the same to this non DS owner.

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

While i feel the 3DS(Aqua Blue that is) is absolutely gorgeous, while still riding on the 'design' of it's little DS brother, it still manages to somewhat look fresh and i dig the 80's glittery' look and the multicolored layer inbetween the the clam shell. But the Wii U? I'm not saying the design is ugly at all, but it's flat out BORING....I totaly prefer the look of retro consoles. NES, SNES, N64 and even the Gamecube were all so unique and seperated themselves in originality and looked completely different from one another which was great.

The 'Wii' looks pretty whimsical, although a tad minimal. But the Wii U is just a lazy boring playing it safe effort. It's like throw in a splash of color, do something unique with the Wii U Gamepad button layout(The way it was done with the Gamecube for ex)just something to make it look exciting and new. As is, both the console and game pad look like some boring minimal sleek piece of unoriginal techy that doesn't have that nintendo flavour AT ALL. Lamest and most unoriginal Nintendo console design of all time...

It's funny how things have gotten so boring and minimal in design(this stands for 'everything' like commercials, decorating, and now gaming consoles ect ect), but behind it all the 2000's are completely riddled with so much junk and apps,(boring minimalism in style, but underneith it all it's a complete mess of complexity, too much going on and access junk 'that does it all' like I-Phones being the big example. Not to mention woman in this day and age have as much style as a KFC bargin bucket. lol i seriously miss the simpler yet out of this world FLASHIER times! The gaming industry is a massive videogame Jungle of overwhelming-ness. Dsi Ware, 3DSWare, Nes 3DS VC, Portable VC, 3DS Retail games.....I mean seriously? And that's just one tiny example.

Anyways, Nintendo has copped out in style, take a look at their Wii U Pro controller. That kind of says it all right there... :p The Wii U just looks like an alteration of the Wii, not the creativity Nintendo is known for 'at all' "That's a BAD miyamoto, Bad bad!! :p

I don't think he deserved that kind of reply. All he was trying to say is that these forums don't really catch his attention anymore with the lack of meaningful discussions. All we see on this site are "Game vs. Game" like polls, "What's your favorite?" and the occasional "What do you prefer?".

The worst part about all this is that when we DO get a potentially good discussion going someone either derails it or it never lifts off. That or it's just a fale troll.

Well, some things I think have more purpose than others... But I feel that this is a little pointless... If it was about the colors available at launch, then sure, I guess it would have more purpose than it does now, but the actual design of the system isn't going to matter since you don't look at a PS360 and say, "Ooh, that's so bulky and underwhelming," you buy it and the only time you ever look at the thing is when you are putting the discs in or taking them out.

I like it. It looks really 'clean' IMO.

The Wii does look nicer and more appealing though.

Looking forward to: ZeldaU & Hyrule Warriors

so i'm guessing i should've used more question marks, exclamation points, and :O smileys in order to fully get across the fact that I was messing around. thanks for the feedback, i'll be sure to apply it next time i attempt to make light of what is clearly a dreadfully serious situation.

Here's the thing, nothing was crackin' on the Wii U forum so why not bring up something, anything to discuss no matter how pointless it may be? I'm here because its fun to mix it in while I'm working. If someone is not having fun on these forums discussing video games which have no real significant importance to our existance then I question why are you here. If you find a topic that you think is lame I don't see a point in asking what's the point? Either actively particpate in the discussion or ignore. Get's off my soapbox

I seem to remember the Wii U being Overly long, though the recent pictures seem to say otherwise.
