I never got around to getting the Wii, even though I love Nintendo's first-party games. I'm excited to catch up with them with the Wii U.

I love games. I like Nintendo and the boutique stuff. (Though I agree, the 3DS right now is a bust.)

But this Wii U, I still don't get. I can see there's potential, but the reality will be tough. I gotta imagine those controllers are going to be pricey.

Because the outsourced manufacturing contract went to a partnership of Monster and Bose? smile

I look at this and wonder if it doesn't defeat the whole purpose of the Wii, which is to get people off their keysters and use video games as a form of pseudo-exercise. Far and away the best games are the sports titles where the controller replaces equipment (Wii bowling, Punch-out, Tiger Woods, etc.).

You'd think all that was needed was to upgrade the response of the controller, especially with Wii Motion+.

Not exactly. It looks like they actually thought of some cool ways to use the controller's screen.

Wii U Unveiling [HD] E3 2011

Enough of what's shown is clever enough to have me interested.

I see it as more of a home console version of the DS.
