The console doesn't even have the Wii U logo on it for crying out loud, it's 'that' bland. It needs a tiny splash of color, just something to make it stand out. Anyways, I agree with everything LordoTendoboy said. Hopefully the final design will look much better, because that's Nintendo being uncreative and playing it safe to the tee which is rare to begin with.

You already mentioned how different Nintendo's previous consoles are from one another. Wii was different from the GameCube. The SNES looks like an NES. We've seen this before. Beyond that is the question: Who cares? Worrying about what a console looks like is almost as bad as worrying about it's name.

As for the tablet controller, no we have not seen this before. It has so many features you can't compare the two. And Nintendo has already demonstrated some new and innovative ways to play games. See Wii sports Golf. Placing the Wii U on the ground and swinging the Wiimote over it. Classic.

Just for you.

I'll admit, it could definitely benefit with some wood veneer.

And the Wii U we see today isn't the final product. So who knows.

It's probably about the same size as the current PS3/360 models, only that it's all strecthed out in the back instead of making the system taller when stood up vertically.

Except they changed the color of the Analog stick to white/grey which looks miles better hehe.

Hey man, it's still a change that you forgot to point out regardless of how minor it may be, and it looks better. Since it breaks up the color instead of just being a 'one color blob' like it was before the final design. But yup, extremely uuber minor it is. They need to stick a sharks fin on that Wii U damnit.

A sharks fin? LOL I actually think Nintendo could take a few design cues from Microsoft. The Xbox 360 Slim is a pretty snazzy looking console. Or maybe they could keep "copying" Apple make the Wii U look like a Mac Mini

This type of controller was done in the 1980's. Remember the Game Boy? Same concept, a controller with a screen that could play games. That's all the Wii U controller is, just a big handheld.

And I was talking about Nintendo's system designs. The actual Wii U console looks too similar to the original Wii. It's not as unique looking as the PS3 and Xbox are to their predecessors.

Hey dude, two screens dude...the tv and the controller's...the game boy it was just a sole screen, so ps vita is copying that

And the ps3 is the most uglyies thing that have seen.

Which PS3 are you talking about? The PS3 Slim isn't too ugly.

To me the Wii U is basically a longer and curvier Wii. The GameCube was unique, the N64 was unique, the DS Lite was unique, the Wii was unique for it's time (even though it looked like a DVD player).

The 3DS and Wii U don't look too different from their predecessors, and this makes me think that Nintendo is playing it too safe. To be fair, the Game Boy Color had the same basic design as the original Game Boy, but at least Nintendo took things in a new direction with the GBA and GBA SP.

Come on Nintendo, be creative with your system designs again! Don't rest on your laurels. The 3DS and Wii U are what the DS and Wii should have been all along.

Yeah. Now the way Nintendo's going with the design for Wii U / 3DS is something similar to what Sony's doing: DualShock controller; barely changed.

The PS4 controller should be a bit bigger and more curved, but still retain the basic layout. I want it to resemble the Xbox 360 controller, but not a direct copy obviously.

I think the Xbox 360 controller is the most comfortable controller I've ever used. And I really hope Microsoft doesn't change it too much for the next Xbox.
