    Higgins is a spark next to a supernova.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Oh, and also: Higgins does it because he's a deluded fanboy. ecosse does it because he's a sadomasochist fantasist getting off on being victimised.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Higgins saw sense the end, though. He weighed up the pros and cons and decided not to get a Wii U yet.

    Might be a good sign that Nintendo realise their platforms need to link up... Or...next next gen console?
    (I may have cursed the wii u by buying one sorry - I love it though)

    Considering nickthegun is one of the. Most relentless trolls of this thread, that post is astounding.
    It's like the rapist claiming that its the fault of his victim for wearing a short skirt.

    Couldn't resist, could you?

    Mind you, you are the go-to guy when someone wants to know about 'relentless trolling'.

    Hah. I forgot about the nintendo rape alarm. I suppose that does make ecosse jodie foster and me a sweaty, drunken redneck.

    Way to derail the thread again.

    So this new 'combined' department is looking at hardware rather than just software? Already?

    What does that say for the Wii U? Or the 3DS, for that matter. I thought that was doing okay now.

    Maybe, like captain planet, their powers will combine into somebody that knows what they are doing.

    I guess it's to start development of their replacements which will take at least 3-4 years, they're apparently doing a lot of restructuring and IIRC recruitment.

    I'm pretty excited by this actually. Looking at the Wii-U they could produce a handheld portable that can be used as a controller on their home console. Couple that with cross-platform game sharing, screen throwing and a linked up online community they'd do gangbusters.

    Sony have tried the same and are slightly ahead of Nintendo. If Sony could allow linking PS Phone with PS4 with PSPortable then boom, print all the money you want.

    I suppose it would be the start of Playstation/Nintendo as a service but if they offer good crossover, flexiblity and choices they'll flourish.

    MS might offer the same as an extension of Smartglass with Windows Phone, Xbox and Windows 8.

    It is, but you don't drop that fast after launch... well, unless you're the vita or the 360.

    Worth keeping in mind that they basically have nothing for the next three months in Japan. It'll be selling sub 10k if they don't do something.

    They really need to start announcing titles, i agree. There's a couple of great games available but nothing for months as you said. I know Nintendo have backed off a bit in order to give 3rd parties more space but i feel they've sat back a little too much this time.

    We need Zelda, Mario Galaxy, Smash Brothers announcements. We know they are coming but they need to build up interest amongst gamers again for this cycle.

    Nintendo games sell Nintendo systems. Anything else available is a bonus.

    My aim is to enjoy my wii U until the next MS or Sony console is released then most likely trade it in for one of the two (as the wii U is the only console I own).

    I suspect this won't be an issue due to my gaming time available, back catalogue of wii games I have never played (Galaxy, Skyward Sword) and the Ninty exclusives that will come.

    IF when the next consoles come I still want to keep my wii U then that is most definitely a brucy bonus and it can sit proudly next to what will most likely be the next MS console.

    Side question;

    Has anyone played a Wii game on the U. Whats the quality like graphics wise? borders on screen? specifically speaking either of the Galaxy games or skyward sword.

    Goat is hungry.....

    (Completely shit) Wii U advert banned in the UK: http://www.wii-consoles.co.uk/articles/asa-bans-wii-u-tv-advert.asp

    @PF: Wii game quality is fine. Basically it's like using slightly better component cables on the original. No clever upscaling or upressing though (it's not any better than the average TV manages).

    Getting into the game is a bit backwards though (for security reasons I guess).

    Guess this must be Rakuten preparing to pull out of retail and slashing prices. Be worth keeping an eye on them over the next few weeks for more bargains.

    Not bothered posting on the Bargains thread as it'd only get lost amongst a shitestorm of "WiiUlol" comments from the usual cakesuckers.

    Not bad, but at this moment in time, £199 would be better!

    It's a bit empty...Could be they're keeping some big announcements for E3 and to coincide with launches of rival hardware...
