Once again, I agree that there should be colour options: for both the Wii U and its controller. But personally, I want white and white. White to provide that nice minimalist two tone white-and-black contrast between TV (with its black bezel) and console, and white tablet so it looks good side-by-site with my iPad.

But I agree a Nes controller look would do great for a lot of people.

Well I disagree with your ideas on colour and I disagree with your claim that white won't draw attention next to black TVs and DVD players.... but this is artsy BS so everyone disagrees. That's kinda the point isn't it? I think we should probably agree to agree but continue to pretend we're disagreeing.

Still, options. Options are great. If there were all the flat colour options in the world for the Wii U I'd go with matte black.

Except that the Wii was not originally and this Wii U design is not either because most AV gear is in various shades of black. A black or even NES themed system and controller would stand out less than glossy white box. NES themed also wins for being totally awesome.

Yes, please on the NES theme!

Man, the future is disappointing. In my humble opinion, everything is so bland, basic, cookie cutter, copycat leach-like life sucking boring. I wish the Wii U would get schnazzy and add some funkin' personality in the mix.

This!
Everything imo went downhill gradually after 95' Hell, If you were to take a look at a mid to late 80's/early early 90's videogame commercial( just one example, or even cereal, candy bars, or 'whatever' for the most part)which were completely out of this world, full of zany imagination, vibrant colors, they were in your face, just magical, the works... and you then compare it to the drab, lifeless, dismal, extremely minimal, colorless, uncreative, 'too serious' and boring commercials of today it's pretty damn depressing.

YouTube however is a god send, i can find all of those amazing retro commercials, and relive the awesomeness.
As fr the Wii U. You could always customize is to make it look however you want instead of the 'playing it safe' generic bland design it's already sporting. ;)
The Wii U(Prototype that is) is Nintendo's first uncreative attempt at a next gen console. Where's that special something that makes it look like a completely different and 'new' console. Far too simular to the Wii...But as we know, Nintendo will not stray away from the wii brand nor the asthetics. Wouldn't want to confuse the casual soccer mom masses. :p Maybe Nintendo's araid to get creative design wise since the Purple Gamecube Lunch box was deemed to kiddy by far too many. Still, all of the Nintendo consoles look great, but the Wii U just lacks originality. Hopefully we'll see a change in it's design, if not whatever. :p

The guy from TT games that posted that picture with the new controllers design was fired. :( So, we can all assume that this will be the new model .

Hallelujah.

Well he did dig his own grave by posting that non anonymously after signing the NDA.. He only has himself to blame and he deserves it. He should just be happy he got away that easy, NDA violation can lead to court.

But I'm glad that this might be the final version. It's looking good.

It's not just nostalgia, I adore 80's in general when it comes to fashion, music and many other things. And that goes for the late 70's as well.
Anyways, i'm definitly all for an 'NES' inspired design or color layout. Either way, you'll most deifnitly beable to buy 'NES' skins for the controller and console online the same way you can with the Wii. I'm personally just going to leave it as is, maybe thrown in a splash of color with whatever, but that's it really.

Actually, Nintendo should thank him, since there are far more people interested and hyped for E3 after seeing the new model.

Hallelujah.

They should thank him for screwing their agreement over? He was asked to keep quiet but didn't. Hype or no hype that will look bad for both the employee and the whole company. Who knows if Nintendo will do future contracts with them when they know secrets slip out.

You could argue that it would create hype, but it could also ruin hype. If you go back to E3 2004 and the Zelda Twilight Princess reveal trailer was shown and the crowd wen bonkers it was an amazing moment. That would never have happened if the trailer or an image had leaked before E3. They'll never get reactions of the crowd if everything leaks before the actual conference. There'll be loads of people watching both online and on TV so crowd reactions can be important.

Might be good for hype, but violating the NDA has a lot more bad points rather than good. I'll admit I'm personally happy he did it though.

He was a QA tester. Even if he did that, there aren't many people that could be blamed for it. :P

It's pretty much the same as shovelware just applied across all "art media".

For all our disagreements, you're a freaking genius.

Edit: to preempt: no sarcasm there.
