I saw the potential when the showed the silent scope type game.

I also like what I heard about someone talking about how you could move it 360 degrees like it was a window into a different world

That controller needs to be completely redesigned, and Nintendo needed to show 1st party software for it.  Without intriguing first party software (outside a Smash Bros. name drop), there's nothing about this console that excites me.  All the 3rd party games they showed off I can already play on consoles I already own up to a year earlier.


And Nintendo's set a new bar for terrible console names with "Wii U".  I didn't think that was possible.

Third Party games appealed to the graphic whore in me, even though i probably wont buy them. The controller brought even more to the table, and was like Futuristic Back to the Future 2 ****.

The buttons could stand to be larger. I can see why they would position the slide pads above the buttons since it makes it easier to access the touch screen. Doesn't look terribly comfortable though. I'd have to get my hands on it.

I am so hyped and with the Perm. That controller looks like the future! The graphics look as amazing as the other systems and can probably do much more. But really, when it looks like Pixar what more do you want?

The Nintendo titles are there and will probably be shown behind closed doors like the brawl reveal years ago. I saw no Dixie kongs in any way shape or form but good god I am so excited.

Can we at least get an update on the classic controllers? I think people would be tired of keeping the WiiMote+ in their laps by now.

Are circle pads regular analog sticks or 3ds esque slide pads?

From Engadget's hands on:

Quote
In the hand the controller feels light, and it feels comfortable. It's most similar to the old GameCube controller, really, but much wider and with more buttons

The fact sheet makes it seem like only one screen controller can be connected, and multiplayer games will use Wiimotes. I guess we'll have to wait until later to find out if that's true.

Which game in Motion looked like that?  Graphic cards have had tech reels like that since Gamecube and never look like that in actual games.

Wii has a brand appeal, whether you like it or not. This is an extension of the philosophy they used for Wii. There is nothing more wrong with the name then the original Wii name.

Nintendo did not disappoint this E3 but, I found the show was over way to soon and NOTHING was announced for Wii, was it?
