How can you have room for a PS3 and not Wii U? It's almost the same size as the controller. But I will ALWAYS have room for you Mickeyboy. ♥

Holy He-man! this talking pink Dino tranny hits on everything that types! :D I love it, just like subcon and Fry Guy's extra spicy Shy Guy chili dogs. B-)

I actually like the look of the Wii U more then the Wii. The Wii always looked like some cheap looking DVD player to me.

I also like that they moved the sync button to the front of the console. Having to open the flap on the Wii to get to the sync button was always annoying.

I think the console does it's job. It isn't ugly or huge. I still wish I could have it stand like a tower though.

You compare any consumer electronics product to an Apple product and it's going to come off second best.

I think the Wii U looks reasonably slick for all that. The tablet controller is fugly though.

Why does everything in electronics have to be serious colors like white, black, and metallic? I remember when bright colors were rad.

I thought I was the only one who thought like you did!

Admittedly, I don't think the Wii U looks very attractive and I do think the Gamepad looks bulky, but it's about how they use the Gamepad and the kinds of games that come out for Wii U!

I'm just having fun. I honestly do like my Wii in the den to blend in with the other electronics in the entertainment center.

Then again, I'm also totally okay with brightly colored extra Wiimotes that are kept stowed discreetly in a drawer until play time.

I had this argument with Skywake in another thread :P:

There should be colour WiiUs because some people like colour. There should be white and black ones too, because some people (or, lots, I guess, it is the current fashion) like minimalism.

Indeed you did Choco. To defend myself I would definitely get the black one if there was an option of every colour even though I pointed out that colours could work with minimalism in the other thread. I think I also pointed out in that other thread that a NES themed one would be pretty cool.... and I stand by that.

but as I said before in response to the OP I think the console design itself is pretty good. Just give me a black one and I can pretend it's not there.

I would've liked a nice splash of color, the white is getting boring. Besides that though, its going to be hidden away in my TV setup so I don't really care. Like others have said, handhelds should be more concerned about looking nicer. Although, I do think there was more differences between the Wii U system and Wii, for those who are easily confused. :p

Did anyone expect the WiiU to be made out of diamonds?

White and Black are good enough choices. If you want to "rad" it out with a neat color, just get a skin for it. I did that with my Wii.

I wish it was just black, and they had never made a black Wii. Just to keep them different.
