Even if it's HD, it's still MEH. Kinect is the future.

Other than the fact that they both have screens capable of displaying images, how is it like a small iPad?

thats exactly what I did to the wii, then softmodded with 500g HDD and got rid of it to my "older brother figure's" kids..

this is quite high tech, believe me..when they release games like COD, madden, multi platform games..the wii U version will be the most technically advance version..


until the nextbox 720 and ps4 hits ofcourse..but we'll see..


I wonder how much each of these controllers are gonna go for...120$?

Sorry Nintendo fans, but I think this is a stupid concept.

I'd want to know what kind of durability testing they do on those controllers before releasing the product. Anyone who's played games knows damn well that the controllers get dropped, thrown, squeezed, a lot. Seems like some nerds came up with the idea, but never had the idea tested out by 13 year old boys and Mortal Kombat before presenting the new wii to the world.

The idea is dumber than the Virtual Memory modules or whatever they were called on the DreamCast with the lil' dot matrix looking screen.

I think the controller is a cool concept, but how much are those things going to be to replace/get more of?!

I bought the original Wii when they said the new Zelda was coming out, Skyward Sword. It still hasn't come out! That controller looks really comfortable for long hours of play ....... ....... will never buy another nintendo product .. they are years behind the other systems in terms of quality.
