And thus is demonstrated the need for clear, distinct branding.

Maybe only for VC transfer but it's like the wii to GCN u didn't NEED a GCN to play wii

I really hope we can transfer our downloaded VC games from Wii to Wii U, because I have a bunch and would hate to have them stuck on my Wii...

No, no sarcasm, you seriously don't need a Wii to use the Wii U.

I thought that argument was BS 'till this thread

oh well, hopefully post-E3 when there are game trailers for big Wii U games flooding the interspheres people realise that this is a different machine.

Honestly, I'd be right here with OP if I didn't check gaming websites on a regular basis. Nothing I've seen so far about the Wii U screams new console.

In seriousness, no. It's a new system, but you DO need wii remotes.

It could be but given some of the demos we saw last year I have no reason to believe it's pre-rendered. Plus, you wouldn't put a trailer that looked that good up for the Wii because nobody would believe it was a game for the Wii.

@skywake: Actually, that's undoubtedly just a pre-rendered CGI trailer. It really can't be anything more just looking at it.

And I really feel that this is a matter of clear obliviousness. Honestly, what more do you need to see that the Wii U is an entirely different console? Nintendo wants to maintain their home consoles under the Wii branding, and I can appreciate that, just as Sony keeps all their consoles under the PlayStation brand, and as Microsoft still has their Xbox going for them. Unfortunately to say it, @Bubbab5, it just seems as though you really haven't been paying enough attention.

On reflection this is obvious, I'll blame the sleep deprivation. That said there has already been stuff on show for the Wii U, and I'm obviously typing this before the megatons, so my point remains. Even a casual glance and people with any knowledge of what the Wii is and isn't capable of will know the Wii U is more than just a tablet.
