How is a system that intergrates your tv, cable and game console a gimmick? I can do practically everything i need for my living room from one simple touch screen interface. sure it doesnt have the horsepower the microsoft or sony will have but the functionality is much better. lol apple tv wishes it did as much as effiecently as the wii u. now if we can get some exclusive game everything will be good

Because the net result of that system is several unique, but ultimately non-compelling, features that the vast majority of us won't use.

Which is cool conceptually, but how many of us actually expect that to enhance our gaming experience? When (if) I eventually buy the Wii U, I'm never going to bother playing a game from my bathroom or my kitchen. I'm just going to plop down in front of my TV so I can get the big-screen experience.

I don't know about that. Kinect delivers a bunch of novel, though ultimately trivial, features too, like voice command and the ability to scroll through menus without a controller.
I really don't know how any of that improves my gaming experience though. It seems like tech experimentation for novelty's sake imo.
*Sighs* Another day, another garbage topic full of garbage responses. Good God, when will this crap end?
And yet, after reading the very blatant title of the topic, you CHOSE to not only read it, but post in it. I wonder when thi gs like that will end... If a topic seems like "the same old, same old" just remember - you're the one who can always ignore it. Or you can make your own "Nintendo is FANTABULOUS!!!!!!" topic sans "garbage."
Not fail, but I think struggling a bit could actually turn out for the best, at least that's what I hope. I love Nintendo which is why I'm often so critical of them - as far as their consoles and software titles for them go, I think they can do better and expect more from them, so if they get a little push which encourages them to do so, it could be good in the long run.
I actually hope everyone else fails, to point that new console games would only be made for WiiU, that way you all would be stuck with it muhahahaha
Iwata: "You want game??? You come see ME!!!!"
Haha, I think that could work Ok, too. Nintendo would have so much more competition on their own platform, they'd make some of their best games ever.: )
