    okay so it has some hardcore games...
    The controller method doesnt look very suited to hardcore gaming however.
    It'l be a bit more powerful (speculation..) then current gen consoles... and Sony + MS will have their new offerings probably announced at next E3, and knowing them will blow the Nintendo system in terms of power.

    So what are you left with? a console with an awkward control method, inferior graphics and tons of play once and disgard typical Nintendo titles.

    Thats my prediction anyway :D

    Must be resistive if you can use a DS stylus.

    I reckon capacitive as it has a stylus (which are mostly on resistive screens/phones/tablets etc). Capacitive would cost more, and you would need a "special" stylus, again increasing the cost. Probably gonna be missing multi-touch as well, again mostly associated with capacitive screens. 3DS is resistive as well, I think.

    You are welcome, look at the picture in the first post and the picture of the guy holding it. Look how far you would have to stretch your fingers to reach those top bumpers :eek:

    Based purely on speculation, MS and Sony's new console will do 1080p as a standard, what is stopping developers just making it 720p for the Wii U?

    Either that or The console could have the power to display 1080p.

    Who knows, but this thread is speculating on things which are currently unknown.

    Looks perfectly fine to me with the hand-ons video on Kotaku.

    I thought it looked really big at first but it seems to be fine.

    Surely you survived the N64 controller as a kid? unless you were older then.

    I remember looking at the Left shoulder button and the D Pad and having to change hand positions on some games to play :cool:, and that was the coolest console ever made.

    N64 was just 100% pure awesome. I'm hoping this new funky controller is going to make this new Wii U just as awesome :D
