    Not so much 'explained' as 'spun'.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    I can't see the next Xbox and 360 launching next year. If anything the Wii u will help prolong their life. With Microsoft releasing 2 of their biggest ip's (halo and gears) in the same 12 -14 month period on the 360 and not their next system makes it even more believable they'll hold off until 2014. If they do, then we're going to hear about it may latest to start that hype machine rolling.

    So the games will look pretty but gameplay will suffer?

    Well gameplay on Wii didnt suffer just graphics so as the Wii U is more powerful i dont see how it should be any different.

    Down to Nintendo to get Western devs onboard. Japanese devs will flock to it

    To be fair there were lots of genres that the Wii couldn't do. Theres no open world games for. Is that because it couldn't cope with the genre (eg Morrowind even, let alone Skyrim) or because no one could be bothered to try?

    Im pretty sure i already know the answer to this, but, seeing as i've ordered my Wii U off Asda, that means i'll be getting it November 30th 2013 right?

    Or they'll send you an alternative product. So in Asda's case, probably a Gameboy and 10 kilos of over chips

    You didn't get to the Beckett quote? :lol: I thought it made some good points and was more interesting to read then your usual "5 things the Wii U does" articles even if it does waffle on.

    Me too :/ buyer's guilt kicking in bigtime. Even more worried now i've ordered from Sainsbury's and only just read previous customer's comments. Oh well fingers crossed it'll turn up on release day!

    I ordered with ASDA and its still awaiting stock. There is a message on the Nintendo Land bundle page that if you ordered before the 16th Nov you will receive it on the 30th.
    I would have gone with Shopto but they didn't seem too certain they could deliver it on day one at that time.

    From what i could gather, Higgins kept throwing himself on the Nintendo grenade, pledging allegiance to the Wii U and defending it to the death.

    Then, in a random comment, he said something like "Yeah, i've realised its shit and i've cancelled my pre-order".

    .....and he was never seen again.

    /limp gradually turns into confident smooth stroll

    And just like that...He's gone...

    In case anyone missed higgins78's comment on the Reggie article yesterday:

    Even as a long, long time Nintendo supporter and "customer" I would find it hard to disagree with any comments made in this here article. I have a Wii U pre-ordered but have decided as of today to cancel, thus making it the first major Nintendo console Ive not purchased at launch. I will no doubt be buying one in the not to distant future once the AAA games - which they always do - follow, but as today stands I don't see a rosy horizon.

    Agree totally with the comments concerning "the end of an era" in videogames.
    IT'S SO SHIT THAT HIGGINS78 HAS GIVEN UP.

    I wonder what would happen if we locked vizzini and higgins78 in a thread together? They'd probably depress each other into a suicide pact.

    There are some points in there but they're buried in pretentious fanboy wank. Also I hate this American point of view that gaming was dead in the 80s until Nintendo came along. Such bollocks.
