    Yeah, I was pretty pissed. lol I mean, I have a game that I can't take back, nor can I play it. Now, the ID I created might not even be usable on another console. wtf. If it doesn't work on a new console, I'll take it back, sell the game, and be done with Nintendo in that regard.

    Surely I hope so. It was said that they are console specific.

    LOL, the Vita, yeah probably not badly at all
    Im pretty sure if you put a power per square inch measurement on it the Vita would smash it.

    Would be interesting to see, but I suspect the GPU is still a bit gruntier.

    I dunno man. I know tons of people buy Nintendo consoles for Nintendo games. But from Nintendo's point of view they want as many 3rd parties on it as possible and this kind of outcry is quite worrying. They will hit the sweet price point for the masses quickly, sure, and shift tons of units with the WiiU. But securing 3rd party would have been one of their top priorities during development of the console

    The biggest 3rd party games of next year are all unconfirmed for WiiU. But then again, anything can happen. I'll definitely get one, as you know, for the Nintendo games . After a price drop though.

    Wow, man. Looks like nintendo will be $#@!ed once devs stop making ps3/360 titles. I just can't see them scaling their game back just to put it on the wiiu. Especially if the ps4/720 is way more powerful.

    I've been prediciting this for a while, I just cant see it having any sort of 3rd party legs beyond 24 months.
    of course, the machines dont seem to be able to last 24 hours. So may not be an issue.

    3 hour battery life? Time to go to XDA and hack the bloody thing! Squeeze some juice out of it.

    Any dev that ports a ps4/720 title to the WiiU and not put it on the ps3/360(140million consoles) would be a fool. They're putting themselves back in the position that the Wii was in as far as 3rd party support. It's going to be interesting to see if they have a title that breaks out like Wii Fit did.

    I didn't know it was having hardware failure issues that bad. It's like they are running into another wall after how the 3ds launched.

    Last E3 I was so excited to see Wii U, but after I saw Ninty's presser, I could already foresee how it was going to go down. Nintendo has dropped the ball on so many fronts with their new console, it's not even funny. Weak online suite, lack of cross the board trophies, locked IDs, poor 3rd party port performance and a lack of exciting 1st party content...No wonder Sony and MS aren't worried .

    F34R, did you turn yours off during the update? People are finding their Wii U bricks when they turn off during the lengthy update...

    I dunno...I think gen 7 has some legs still. If I was a publisher, I would keep a keen eye on 140 million gen 7 install base. Perhaps Nintendo had better pray to the gaming gods that PS360 stick around for awhile...

    Too much to ask for a decent HD Nintendo console it seems. Hardware specs aside, a few very simple changes could have made it all a lot better.
    I'm holding off my pre order now for 6 months.
    I know it's all doom and gloom like with the 3DS but that was always going to do well. Just got a lot of stick from people who thought Vita would destroy it. We all know that's never going to happen, ever.

    As above. Weren't Ps2 Games being made for a few year after 3 launched.

    Really going to come down to install base on the wii, and ease or porting (which 4a is showing they cant be bothered). There may well be legs in gen 7 (that why Im giving it another 2 years after this one) but its not going to mean they will automatically be ported to the wii u.

    Currently estimates on B3D (due to die size and known specifications + other IBM CPU's) places the WiiU processor at less than half to even a third as powerful as the 360 Xenon CPU.

    Does WiiU have cross-game chat, the way 360 and Vita do it ?

    The original wii is horrible graphically. I dont know the specs but it looks less then my old ps2.

    It was all about the controller for lots of people. A new way to play games.

    Looks like they r trying the same approach this gen.

    Yeah I think so. The video chat thing they showed with the gamepad, but I dunno if that requires you to quit the game (probably does) and I don't know about the voice game options
