Who else is there to get? You have the casual. And you ain't getting the hardcore audience unless you get a controller that you can play FPSs on comfortably :O
or play anything with comfort really

The Wii U controller is a tablet. People like tablets. Look at where the market is heading.

nintendo's hush hush approach irks me sometimes. why did you bother going to CES? wasn't it behind closed doors only? at least dispell the rumor of a surprise launch at E3. If they do that I'm going to kick baby. It was sweet with the release of link's awakening on the eshop. it won't be with a console.

This is great. This is what I want from Nintendo.

  • Nintendo doesn't care what gaming competitors are doing

Good. They're only failing at what Nintendo accomplished with flying colors.

I went back to that GoNintendo article, and the image was replaced by a video.

a good company doesn't look at what everyone else is doing like nintendo.
a great Company looks at what others are doing and innovates like apple.

But if they confirm it as true or false then there's no surprise factor. :O

See #11? Really. Apple innovates computers every day. But with gaming, Nintendo's the equivalent of Apple. And Shigeru Miyamoto is the Steve Jobs of Gaming. We'll never forget either of them. But Apple doesn't do games, they're icing on the cake. That's why I chose to buy a 3DS - it was made for gaming in mind. Both are made to do almost all the same functions, except 3DS is built for mainly gaming. iPhone is built for mainly calling. If Nintendo adds internet voice chat to the 3DS, which is possible, they both do just as much, but 3DS is better at gaming, not calling.

The only problem is that the Wii U controller would be the worst tablet ever if it was a tablet.

We know next to nothing about the Wii U, so you're basing your opinion on speculation.

Who cares if the Wii U controller looks like a tablet? It's not supposed to be an actual tablet, it's just a controller with a screen, basically a handheld that's tethered to a home console.

but nintendo has shown nothing of the console itself. which is the cause for confusion. with a dedicated "app" store planned for the wii u, will it need the console to function entirely? can it operate without it for a period of time? they seem to be catering to the tablet market, which is why its so strange they say they don't care what the competition does, or at least inspired from it. Also if the 3ds can potentially be used as a controller for the system, miyamoto mentioned this in an article, is the controller necessary?

ALL WILL BE REVEALED AT E3

You expect anything more from Nintendo, one of the most secretive companies in the world?!

When they showed off the Wii U at the last E3 it was probably a bit too soon anyway.
They felt pressured into revealing it because the info leaked early. Let's all just chill until E3 this year and let Nintendo do their thing. All will be revealed in do time. Until then we'll just spin our wheels about what the next gen has in store for us. Either way it's gonna be one heck of a new era for Nintendo.
Now just sit back and watch the sparks fly. :)
