    The key word is 'selling' though. At events like E3, those guys are acting as salesmen, not business executives. Salesmen have to be likeable, or else you're not going to want to buy their products. Nintendo struck gold with Reggie, who's a larger than life personality and grabs people's attention. The same goes for Sony and Tretton, though his shtick is the slightly nervous, down to earth guy that people can relate to. Microsoft are yet to find a guy that can't pretend he's not a complete cock for a couple of hours once a year.

    Of course image has nothing to do with how good they are at their day to day job, but presenting events in front of a large audience isn't their day to day job. Nintendo and Sony have both found someone with the ability to do both, so it clearly doesn't need to be an either/or scenario.

    I liked Allard. He was mad, but it seems MS basically hid him from public view after one too many instances of getting wrecked and naked at a press party. Then they had Moore, who I was also fine with, he was likeable, he clearly knew his games and had strong feelings on the subject. You can see that still now when he's interviewed about his job in charge of EA Sports, it's just as important to him, if not moreso, that each FIFA reviews well and people enjoy it than it sells a bit more than the last one.

    Since him though, it's been rapidly downhill.

    These people shouldnt be selling consoles. Salesmen and spokesmodels should be selling consoles. That goes for everyone.

    Does anyone know if all the extra gubbins like the armour in Arkham City Wii U is optional? Not that it'd stop me if it wasn't, just wondering. The deal I've got my eye on has it.

    I'm curious to see how Monster Hunter 3 goes with the cross-console connection, but the save game sharing seems a little pointless given you'd have to buy it twice. I'm not even sure both are coming out here. I think I'd go for 3DS over Wii U, as I prefer portable MH, but I hope the HD one does well so we get a proper Wii,U sequel.

    I loved MH3 on Wii, as you may recall - I'm sure we played together.

    I've not payed much attention to the WiiU - does it have decent voice chat for online play yet? If so, a decent Monster Hunter game might make me splash out...

    WiiU doesn't have voice chat on the system. Individual games have to have their own solution.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Like LB says, it's game specific. But for MH it's a yes :)

    I think we only played once on Wii because I wasn't a huge fan. Don't get me wrong, it's a great game, I just prefer sitting playing as I watch (well, listen to) TV. Then again, with the Gamepad screen I could do that.

    It doesn't support off screen gameplay I'm afraid.

    Ah. Well I shall have to consider this further. HD vs portability. Both still look good though :)

    If the Wii U version supported off tv play or the 3DS version supported online then I would buy it. Unfortunatly they do not so I'm going to pass.

    Ahh, we must have discussed something else then - Fire Emblem or Darkside Chronicles maybe...

    I did talk a lot about MH3. I just tended to play offline. I'm sure we discussed Darkside Chronicles too :)

    I might go for the Wii U version for the online play, but I can see getting the 3DS one too for offline hunting to get better armour etc. I wonder if any retailers will do a reduced price double pack?
