Hands on with the Wii U

Postby frazzerr » 07 Jun 2011, 18:17

Nintendo just won E3 right there baby, i'm not a fan of motion control gaming, i prefer holding a controller instead of jumping about like a loony but f*ck me the Wii U looks damn impressive :shock: !

Hands on with the Wii U

After watching the Conference I really want the new Wii now. It seems to be a lot of good third party support.

Have they said anything in regards to how powerful it is compared to the PS3 and Xbox?

I'm a bit worried about that too. They threw everything in there, but will I be able to hold it?

And will it vibrate? Some sort of rumble feedback is just as important for immersion as other features I feel.

Yes. Reggie said it would. Him or Iwata - one of the two.

If it's big enough for japanese hands, it's big enough for ours.
Nintendo are too thorough not to have thought this through.

What? Granted the N64 controller had that stupid extra prong, but it was very comfortable to hold. Same with the GC one.

The N64 pad was arguably the best controller ever and the GC weren't bad either.

Looks interesting. Can't wait to try it out.
Couple of questions though. Just how much are those controllers going to cost? Its going to be pretty pricy if its got that screen, a built in battery and its own processor, GPU etc... :|
