New Nintendo Console is called...

...WiiU

This is what it looks like

Audio sucks but here is the demo reel of the new console.

Re: New Nintendo Console is called...

Can we just call it the Weebu?

I wonder if Apple is kicking themselves for not thinking of doing this with their tablet first. It looks cumbersome, but the touch screen menu option for your "gear" potentially eliminating pop up menus that appears to be what the Zelda game is displaying is a pretty cool idea.

I'm guessing though this will be like the Wii... I'll play it if someone else has one, but no urge to buy my own.

Re: New Nintendo Console is called...

I like the fact that we can still play without the need of the TV. Though I'm I sure to play an entire game on that thing will conjure up a serious case of carpal tunnel.

You obviously have not spent enough quality time with the NES my friend. Let me remind you:



That's carpel tunnel... plus the corners hurt when your older brother would hit you with them to win the game. Jerk.

Re: New Nintendo Console is called...

Holy shit. For a second there I thought it was just some hardcore retarded fucking controller add-on that you can use wii garbage with. First little video thing just had people playing fucking golf with the thing on the ground and shit. What the fuck. Then I watched the other shit and it looks like it's an actual real game console and that thing is just some massive fucking controller thing. It's the length of a goddamn japanese dude's fucking forearm wide or some shit.

I guess that isn't that bad though. I thought that asian guy was saying Ryu. Fucking wiiu. Didn't think it'd be possible to name something an even dumber name than wii. GG nintendo. At least you guys can get multi-platform games now, lolololol. I could see that screen being kinda useful for shit like a map and all your hud shit on it. So the massive fucking screen thing isn't all that dumb. The rest of it is your standard controller shit you'd find on a dual shock 3 (minus a camera or whatever. Fuck that shit.), which is cool and will hopefully keep the gimmicky shit to a minimum. Still, holy fuck massive.

But overall it's like a real console finally, can have good games plus maybe some decent to good nintendo games. Throw in some free, good online and don't make it expensive as fuck and I'd definitely consider it. Which isn't something I was willing to do with the last couple consoles nintendo made. Not too bad, I guess.

Re: New Nintendo Console is called...

I'm still not clear on how powerful it is. I know it's HD capable and 1080p, but Nintendo have sounded cagey about what it's capable of, the tech demo honestly wasn't impressive, and I've heard a guy from DICE said it's not actually as powerful as even the 360.

Re: New Nintendo Console is called...

I fucking like this too. Could careless about any motion control, or camera game syncing, or whatever. Those, for the moment, are ancillary features imo, but heck the controller is basically a tablet with a standard 8 button setup built in? Thats pretty sweet. You can have it set to display hub info, and even play games entirely on the control screen. I can dig it. With most modern phones being mobile hotspots, and its wifi connectivity..... gaming on the go?(Now if only it would play the big games on the go) Yeah, not to shabby.

Nintendo seems to have a decent line up of third party developers working on some big titles so all the better. I'm interested to see what kind of meaningful innovation comes out of this, and I think it will be an interesting platform to develop for. I never bought a wii, but I'll most likely end up owning this. At the very least it looks like the type of system that might finally turn my old lady into a gamer.

Nintendo's stock took a big hit after they unveiled the WiiUiu, but that may also be a blessing in disguise, may be a means for a quick financial turn around for an enterprising individual with the means to capitalize on it.

You are in a corner because you're grounded, and no one gave you permission to come out yet. So get back in there.=)

Re: New Nintendo Console is called...

My latest pondering on the Weebu tablet, that occurred to me while making bagels (that's right - I'm making fucking bagels!) is how does this work if more than one player wants to play? Do you literally have to go out and buy two consoles or is there some sort of discount on your second Nintendo Tablet? Would it even work or will your tv cry in pain? From all I see, it really appears to be a play by yourself, except for the games that involve the other wii like controllers.

Re: New Nintendo Console is called...

"Making" as in fork-split, and toasted, or actually making bagels from scratch? Homemade bagels sound pretty good.

But yeah, about the Uuuwii thats a good question. I cannot imagine you being forced to purchase an entirely separate console to get another controller. Of coarse you never really know what their plans for it are. A discounted offer giving during the initial buy would make sense.

And I haven't seen anything yet about how it functions with multiple contrablets(trade marked). But it wouldn't make sense for it to only function with one from any stand point, but again, you never know.
