Hard to belive on the UE4 and the price is to high, other than that I would love multi touch on the screen or some other surprise.

This would be too good to be true.
I'm calling it fake.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

This seems a bit fantastical. If it was true, however, I'd be one happy Wii U owner.

I love these rumor posts that sprinkle just enough bits that we know to be true (e.g., the Ubisoft slate of games) and bits that are very likely (e.g. a launch date of 23 November) to make them seem credible. :|

If that was the case that the Wii U will have DirectX they should just change the name to DirectXbox.

True or not I assume it would use (a costum) openGL 4, equivalent to DX11, just easier to give a reference as they are more or less the same thing, even if is just open GL 3.x (from 4850, like the first rumurs said) and DX10.

Vitality Sensor is becoming the biggest punchline for Nintendo since Virtual Boy.
