They made the name worse. Is it a console or just a controller or woot? Bit confused.

Nintendo are stupid. That's an accessory, not a console. The crowd will cheer at anything. Its not a console, and this whole thing has been a let down, its just another gimmick. No thanks. Completely let down at them "bringing it back" somehow.

Looks like something from The Early Learning Centre.

Now I'm baffled. Is this supposed to a brand new console or just an extra add-on for the Wii?

It looks badly laid out :?

How are you supposed to use the right analogue stick without accidentally touching the buttons all the time? :?

The button layout underneath the right stick rather than above seems quite unnatural when quickly switching between buttons and right thumb stick on fast paced 1st person shooters and the like? Why fix what wasn't broken? :?

And the name...WTF... :?

Good point guys, I didn't even notice that there wasn't a picture of a console. Now I'm confused.

*edit* Okay, I saw a picture of it. They didn't really focus on that part of really. But in no way is this an add on to the Wii...

According to the Guardian http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/20 ... es-console

"After the demo was over Nintendo, bless it, treated us to a final element of cloak-and-daggerishness. We were told more facts about Wii U, which had to be read out and transcribed only onto paper.

So here they are: the console itself will run in full HD, via HDMI, but the touchscreen isn't HD. The console has internal Flash memory which can be augmented with "SD Card or USB solutions". It will play optical disks and downloadable content, and will be backwards-compatible with Wii software. And it will launch some time between 1 April and 31 December 2012.

It will be the oddest console ever, and possibly the best, too. Or it may turn out to be a complete cul-de-sac. But one thing is for sure: it won't just be another generic games console."

If that IS the case and it "connects via HDMI" they must also have a console coming they didn't show because the Wii doesn't have a HDMI port and the controller obviously can't be connected constantly. May still be some hope after all.
