There is so much hate going around for the Wii U, I thought I would just ask what everyone else was hoping for from Nintendo regarding their new console?
I need a new sig...

All I wanted was a Nintendo console with no gimmicks.

I remember there was a lot of hate for the Wii as well, not to mention the DS.

I was expecting some kind of new tech, innovative (read: different) control schemes than we've seen before, and the typical casual Nintendo aesthetics. Really, the Wii U is exactly what I expected to happen. In fact, if they came out with a PS360-style controller, I would have been surprised.

Nintendo will do as Nintendo always does: Be successful and make money.

A proper controller. I haven't felt good about a NIntendo controller since the SNES controller.

A good controller is really my only beef with the console.
I've decided to not have a sig because nobody reads it anyway. Not even you.

There wasn't hate for the DS. At least not any more than other consoles. The DS actually managed to put out at least 10 good games a year, if not more. (Maybe an exaggeration, but the point still stands)

Anyways, I was just expecting an HD console with some sort of gimmick. Then, I was expecting a great console to play FSA on after the first trailer. Then Nintendo came back to their usual disappointing selves.

I agree but add third party support as well which they seem to be doing with this console hopefully. Traditional controls is what gamers actually want. Oh and I guess proper online support which they seem to be working on. And also since this is a whole new console I am paying for I want a lot better graphics than the 360/ps3 and not just slightly better unless the price is properly adjusted.

a game that'll take me through emotions and feel actual sympathy, not just an understanding

I dont really see this controller as a "gimmick" tho. It's not like the Wii where motion control was supposed to be the "norm" of the control scheme. Here we have a controller with a touch screen in the middle of it. There are a ton of possibilties with this.
