    So. Here is what we learned from that Japan Nintendo Direct:

    Details and Specs

    Wii U Supports Full HD
    Uses a "GPGPU"
    1GB System Memory + 1GB Main Memory = 2GB
    Games will only use the main memory. The other 1GB is reserved for the OS
    Game discs are 25GB and read at 22.5MBps
    Wii U consumes upto 75 watts of energy. Typical usage is 45 watts
    You can import your virtual console games and Wii Ware to Wii U from your Wii
    The Wii U GamePad has really low latency, no lag
    You can do multiplayer using a GamePad and several Wii remotes. Dual-screen play possible
    Miiverse is the system-level social network interface. You aren't the only one playing
    NSMBU and NintendoLand to go on sale on launch day, for 6000 and 5000 yen
    Pro Controller: 5000
    13,440 for an additional GamePad

    Nintendo Network Premium

    Entitles users to 10% off downloads and content as well as other benefits. I think this can't be bought separately. See SKU's below.

    Two console SKU's.

    Basic:

    White Wii U, 8GB storage, GamePad, all AC adapters and HDMI cable - 26,250

    Premium:

    Black Wii U, 32GB storage, GamePad, HDMI Cable and all AC Adapters, stands for the system and GamePad & Nintendo Network Premium - 31,500

    Launch - Japan December 8

    *note - need to confirm some details with the SKU's*

    The first two announced launch titles:
    http://kotaku.com/5942875/here-are-t...-launch-titles

    New Super Mario Bros. U, the Wii U version of New Super Mario Bros., is priced at 5,985, while Nintendo Land is 4,935. Both will also get download versions. Those who buy digital versions will get a redemption code for 500 Nintendo Points.
    The blue boxes are pretty nice. Just like Vitas :O Hopefully things don't get confusing. And it kind of sucks for Sony if they wanted to go blue for PS4 lol

    31K? I'll wait.

    Also those boxes could be only for Japan kinda how Gamecube had different covers.

    EDIT:

    GamePad = 13.4K, so basically the Wii U is less than 13K which isn't bad but I'd go for the Premium.

    Can we get some American details and pricing and release dates? Not that I am really that interested honestly. But depending on the price, I could change my mind. I am NOT happy with the 32gb flash storage. To me that means you cannot upgrade it to say 500gb or what have you. Unless it supports a USB connected external HDD or USB keys?

    The new Super Mario is the best title to launch with.

    I'm assuming that the west will get the console for $299.99 at launch. Not bad for a more powerful console but it needs the games first. If Japan will get it in December 8 then we'll probably get it around March of 2013.

    Scratch what I said. They just made the announcements >___>

    US release

    As with the sets in other regions, the Basic set comes with 8GB memory, a GamePad, AC adapters, and an HDMI cable. The Premium includes all of that and also a console stand, GamePad charging dock, GamePad stand, sensor bar, and the Nintendo Network Premium subscription, and Nintendo Land as well.

    So this is basically a single player only console, and anyone else playing a multiplayer game will have to use A gamepad AND Wii remotes?


    The use of the singular "a gamepad" plus the additional "AND Wii remotes" suggests that BOTH would be required to play as an additional player. It also suggests that only two people will be able to play with all of the Wii U features, as no more than 1 Wii U tablet and 1 Gamepad, or two Wii U tablets at once is supported. I cannot see much of a market for this machine if that is the case.

    Just in case. Here's the current live stream

    http://www.joystiq.com/2012/09/13/wa...-streams-live/

    Japanese people use the "r" a lot when speaking English.

    Zombi U will be released at launch as well as Mass Effect 3.

    It's cheaper than I thought it would be which is nice... I'm actually considering getting one now.

    I think I'll wait for more exclusives to come out or be announced. A LOT of 3rd party stuff ATM, which isn't bad but doesn't quite sell the system since I can play those games on consoles i own.

    Still, I'm pleased with the price and hope the AU price is a reasonable conversion

    You can't compare Nintendo's hardware with Microsoft's (and to a lesser extent Sony) Nintendo is always top notch.
