Just what I was thinking, I know most people have had a negative reaction to the name of the console, so how will this clear up the naming? It would be confusing and stupid to talk about the Wii U and then go to the proper E3 conference and say that it's being renamed.

We know the concept: white box, controller with screen, done. It's the details that are interesting.

GNamer, for Nintendo talk.

While I don't envisage buying a Wii U I am really looking forward to seeing just what it can do. Gearbox restated in an interview recently that the Wii U version will not only be the best looking version but the Wii U can do things graphically that are impossible on Xbox and Ps3. Sounds positive!

Wii U is the actual name, I'd be incredibly surprised if they change it now.

Because if it's a Nintendo DIrect then it's just Iwata sitting in a white studio talking at the camera so even though the man wears nice suits it isn't worth seeing in 3D.

yes, it does seem strange that named devs are praising the system but anonymous unnamed sources claim its rubbish.

No, it's not strange. It's in the developers interest to officially praise the system in order for them to eventually increase the market for which they are developing their games for. But well, I'm not saying anonymous are any more reliable either. We'll simply have to wait and see.
