    1. Using the Wii brand. Couldn't they have called it the Nintendo Revolution or ANYTHING other than Wii U? Stupid people do not know that there is another Nintendo console out there.
    That's not an inherently stupid move. The 360 sold despite still being called an Xbox. PS2 and 3 still sold despite being under the Playstation brand. New iPad still sold despite dropping any distinction at all and Apple have completely dropped the whole concept stating it is no longer even important.

    A number or the word 'new' is a lot clearer than sticking the letter U at the end of something.

    There aren't 50 pages of that, there's about 3 posts.
    Wanting/expecting a good experience doesn't automatically lead to denial if those hopes and expectations aren't met.

    You're rapidly turning into Khanivor - taking a contrary position purely to be contrary (ironically he's actually become more moderate recently)

    Just because you're not interested in it doesn't mean anyone who is is in denial.

    You'll find it's because you're back to providing us with an unending stream of bollocks.

    Exactly, U is just meaningless.
    And yet apple have stopped making distinctions in their branding at all, and it hasn't hurt.

    There's a not-without-merit argument that consistent branding is more important in the long run than continually drawing distinctions between devices.

    Why did they go with 'Wii' then?

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    This is interesting:

    Wasn't that secured some time ago? I seem to recall EG reporting it.

    Could be good for supporting an active indie scene through ease of development. Could lead to nothing. Proof will be in the pudding.

    I hear there wasn't a great turn out at the HMV launch party; but it was great for those who bared the cold and bought the ZombiU bundle and received Black Ops II and NSMBU free.

    Yeah it's not ideal. Hopefully it is down to the software itself and not the hardware so it can be improved through firmware patching.

    @Raiko101 Heya, can't keep up with the thread at the moment. The scrolling thing is weird, not sure if its a pad issue or if nobody else uses analogs for the menus. If i tap right or left it jumps up and down maybe once every 5 or so blocks. Even when I so it slowly. Yet in browser it seems perfectly aligned. Don't have any games for it yet so it's hard to test..

    Could you let me know how you get on when you try it? Thanks

    Switching from one app to another should be almost instantaneous when they sort things out. Nintendo consoles have been great over the years for quick loading games; I couldn’t believe the length of time it took going back to the menu from the Mii creator.

    My gf sent me a text to say she has kindly unpacked and set up my console for me, T_T
    Am I missing out on much? Was there a snazzy new console orientation video that I missed out on )o:
