    The internet browser has two pretty nifty features imo. The curtain on the TV that hides and then reveals what is shown on the tablet and the ability to watch videos on the TV and continue browsing on the tablet. The latter fits in with what Miyamoto said at one of the early Wii U showings where he likened it to a Karaoke machine and how the next person can choose their song whilst the other sings. Could be great for parties with the almost complete availability of music videos and the like on youtube people can take it in turns to choose the next tune.
    My worry is that when Nintendo venture outside of games they never fully deliver what people would usually expect and I can't help thinking it is likely to be missing some standard features or have something about it that just makes it more annoying to use then it should be.

    I thought his impression of the Bayonetta exclusivity haters was pretty spot on.

    Is everyone who writes for the Escapist, English?

    Anyway, one weirdness I just realised - the Zombie U bundle ships with the Pro controller. Does Zombie U even support the pro controller? I thought the big point of Zombie U was the tablet interface. Perhaps it's for 2p content?

    There are videos of it in action on youtube which show a capture the flag game but it looks to me more like battlefield style flag control

    It doesn't look great there with two people who have probably never played it before but it might be fun if you can make the person you are playing against jump or if you can use smart tactics to defeat them. For example placing 3 zombies blocking a path as a distraction and then put a sneaky one in behind to grab them. I am just speculating though I am not entirely sure how it works.

    Shouldn't this thread be moved to the Wii area?

    Or perhaps create a whole new section for the Wii U ? :)

    Either nonsense or another team is on it, still Reggie did say that there was unannounced "launch window" software. :-)

    If it were a port of the 3DS version, it would better suit the Wiimote and nunchuck set, compared to dual analogs. The game is just to fast for the latter.

    This is probably a fake. Since when do staff just reply to emails like this? And the E6760 is way more powerful than dev's have been hinting at. Don't get your hopes up.

    Iím under no illusion it is Nintendo; Iím expecting a shitty Radeon HD 7970 with a mere 3.5 Teraflop performance.

    Hah :). Whatever GPU the WiiU has, it will be very capable and a lot of games will look amazing. I hope Crysis is rolled out for it. My only disappointment is with the CPU. Anyway I'm hoping to have a play tomorrow at the EG Expo so will report back.

    This may very well be my first Downloaded title for the Wii U, looks immense!

    (It's a game called Cloudberry Kingdom).

    Trine 2
    Cloudberry Kingdom
    Little Inferno
    Nano Assault Neo
    Runner2
    Toki Tori 2
    Chasing Aurora

    All look good; if the quality of titles from independent studios thrives on the Wii U, then who needs third party blockbusters?
