Don't like the name really, its definetly not gonna tempt the hardcore COD players and the like away from their PS3/360's IMO. Looks like their keeping the branding,logo's etc the same but thats understandable given Wii's success but I think it will still be tarnished with the 'kiddy reputation' at least for the first couple of years.
Regardless of that I think the console itself has a huge amout of potential. When I first saw the controller I was skeptical as it looked so huge but after reading a couple of hands on reports it sounds like its comfortable to hold which is a relief. And now I can keep playing Zelda while on the toilet having a Wii pU, it don't get better than that!

What's this bit for again?

I can just see it...

"Have you got any WiiU's in stock?"

Fffuuu I'm ordering this thing online.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

Well I'm not going to act all childish about it. Seriously, I really and truly hoped it'd be called nothing more than 'Nintendo'. Still, now that they've got 'Wii U' I wish they'd simply have named it 'Nintendo U'. Anyway, the new console and it's controller have me excited and that's all that matters. People commonly called the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) 'Nintendo' and I'm going to call the Wii U 'Nintendo U'.

They may change the name before it is released. They were calling the Wii the Revolution up until a few months before it came out.

I got used to it already, telling like 50 people about it. Udrawtable... WiiU? Anyways... You can only use one controller at a time so that's good you don't need to worry about buying more. The rest can use Wiimote and for whoever was talking about FPS you can still use that and the nunchuk.

Kachou on!

Actually I disagree with you man. I am like a staple for what Nintendo wants back in their home console gaming. I literally adore Nintendo's handhelds and was an hour early for the 3DS release out of pure excitement - not because they couldn't fill their preorders, as I still would have gotten mine even if I showed up late. Gamecube disappointed me to no end because it did the same thing that the PS2/Xbox were doing, but with less 3rd party support and a few good Nintendo titles. Wii was captivating, it was a new experience that was unlike any other, and while the casual push did drive me away after a few years (I still own a Wii, but rarely play it) the Wii is pure Nintendo throughout.

This Wii U (horrible, horrible name) looks to be a Gamecube 2. When Nintendo was approached about if the system could run Battlefield 3, it was dismissed quickly. No Modern Warfare 3 announcement, No Mass Effect 3 announcement (which would greatly benefit from the additional screen), etc. Maybe they are coming, but this conference and Wii U announcement felt rushed and did nothing for the gamers that they wanted to return to Nintendo as a home console. Look around the internet and you will find that Nintendo fans aren't overly happy and this system is being laughed at by most others.

I'm not happy typing any of this. I wanted to see a Wii 2, better motion control, way more power to stop the dumbed down third-party titles, etc. Instead most are still baffled as to what this think actually is, and lots of people thought that the controller was an add-on to the Wii! It felt like a poor, rushed presentation that left more question than answers, and not in the intriguing way. I really hope that time changes all of this, but I'm really disappointed in what I've seen.

The name is horrible, but I have confidence that the system will be fantastic. The stuff revealed this year was more exciting, especially 3DS.

I dislike the name. I dislike the logo. I dislike the console design.

That said, I did love the tablet controller though. It showed a lot of different ways to deliver new gaming experiences.

Yes, it is probably the worst name for a console ever (o_o'). The Wii is a bad name to begin with, but adding a U at the end makes it even worse... Oh well, looks pretty cool

I agree with you 100% Slapshot. I was really looking forward to Nintendo's E3 press conference, much more than either Sony or Microsoft but sadly I came away feeling extremely disappointed. I am definitely not sold on the Wii U and that is a first for me because I own every single Nintendo console since the NES. It is still a long time before the Wii U comes out so hopefully Nintendo can turn things around and prove that their new console will be worth getting.
