    If it has to be near the tv when you play then surely 3DS or PSV are still the better choice for gaming without a big tv

    I thought we were getting a new console.

    That is not a new console.

    Product may work but the presentation was poor.

    Not sure they even know what they are releasing. If they do know they certainly didn't bother telling us!

    Looks ace, we still don't know enough though.

    I have a question which I think many will share. How do the games get on to the controller/console? Downloadable only? Through the Wii somehow? Wii-U has somewhere to put in a disk? Perhaps it's just 'magic.' Confused.

    @Superet

    It is. It's not just a new controller for Wii, it's a brand new, HD capable console.

    Indeed, if you only watched the first 5 minutes you'd have thought it was another Wii :D

    The controller is not the console, there is a new console there.

    I'm sure Wii U was in Dynasty Warriors, wasn't he? ;)

    While I don't share the cynicism of others here, they could release Ball-in-a-cup HD and ecosse would get excited.

    They kept that pretty quiet. :-/ Did they even show it? I saw a console beneath the tv on one of the videos but it looked like a Wii so I assumed it was that.

    Yeah, this one. Ridiculous.

    If that's what hardcore gamers want, then I guess I'm not a hardcore gamer.

    Haha. That serves me right for turning off the stream in disgust.

    Thanks!

    So why didn't they show that at the gig?

    Not legit I think.

    Did people not watch the presentation properly? Of course it's a new console, why would Iwata mentioned backwards compatibility? And how the fuck would it be HD, and be able to run all those 3rd-party games that were shown?

    Im guessing you insert the disc into the Wii and then with the additional processing power in the WiiU (What a frickin ridiculous name) so when you stream it over it appears in HD. HD shouldnt be too hard to accommodate on such a small screen. The resolution will be much lower than needed on a TV
