I think that Nintendo was trying to answer the question, "So how can we have a competitive multiplayer game, but have everyone - friends, family - together in the same room to entertain themselves?" The "tag" game and the shooter game are tech demos, a baseline foundation for expanding on this concept. For example, I can easily imagine a "Dungeon Keeper" type game, where several players are working together to defeat all the monsters, while another player uses the WiiU to summon monsters, set traps, and hide their treasure.

The issue of "privileged information" seems to be solved by including the screen with the controller. It's only a matter of time before they implement 3D games that augment the television as well as the WiiU controller (if they haven't already).

I'm personally not interested in buying any consoles (I don't even have a television), although I'm excited to see so many innovations. I wonder if they'll catch on.

The controller isn't a stand-alone device. The images on that little screen are streamed from the WiiU.

I love the idea. Even its most basic function - being able to keep playing when someone wants to watch TV - is worth it to me. Anyone who shares a TV at home will appreciate this! I liked Nintendo's depiction of this situation, where someone obnoxiously walks into the room, remote in hand, and announces "it's time to watch baseball" and switches the channel.

I shouldn't need to explain.

Minecraft is horrible, and it isn't even a game.

I sense a topic-derailment....

Back on track: i've not looked at the E3 coverage properly yet, though i'm curious to see more on Skyrim, Forza 4, UFC Personal Trainer and a few others. That WiiU sounds different, so that'll be interesting to find out more about

I haven't seen much of the E3 material, but this looks quite neat.



I can't believe the things Nintendo are trying to push as "features"

- Continue playing without using the TV. Ok, this may be useful for a 12 year old. But utterly pointless to people who has their own TV and is man enough to say "no, go watch baseball on the bedroom tv"? Besides, who wants to play their next gen console on a 6 inch screen anyway?
- Drawing on the controller. Been done on the DS already.
- Play only on the new controller. Ok, I can't see any advantage over using an actual reversi set, which is probably cheaper as well.
- Motion controls. Been done to the death already.
- Use new controller to weigh yourself on Wii Fit without using the TV. Once again, I can't see any advantage over using bathroom scale, which once again is cheaper.
- Telescope-sight. Nintendo saves you from pressing the L-button (or whatever button it is, I haven't played Call of Duty in ages) to bring up the sniper scope.
- Pad for launching shurikens. I'm pretty sure I've seen a Kinect game that does this without a pad.
- Video calls. When 3G phones this was hyped as a major feature. I don't know anyone who actually used their phone to make video calls.
- Magnifying glass. Ever heard of a zoom button?
- Use for launching media. Ok, putting meatspin on the TV while your relatives are dining would be hilarious.
- Use for an inventory screen and such. Been done already by the DS.

Disclaimer: This commentary is meant to be taken humorously and is not intended to make you butthurt, although if it does I'll laugh at you for taking a video game so seriously.

 
- Ok, you must admit that was the most creative cussing this site have ever seen -

Make some more box arts damnit!

I think that's actually one of the reasons they made it this way. You're going to see a lot of "now it's in HD!" rehashes of DS games on the Wii-U.

Um, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, anyone? Since the original had so many horrible flaws and weaknesses, and yet is STILL considered one of the best games ever, a game that fixes those problems and makes everything better would surely be a major contender for GOTY/GOTD(ecade).

All I'm interested in is Skyrim, the new Deus Ex, Mass Effect 3, and possibly Skyward Sword (though I don't have a wii here at the moment). Skyrim is at the top of the list, they've improved so much and I like a lot of the changes. Dragons look nothing short of amazing. With any luck it wont need any updates or mods to be decently playable!

To be honest, haven't took time to learn anything about this E3 coverage at all. But by reading the post you guys have said, I would say the nintendo 3DS interest me the most. Mainly because it features additions to some of my favorite series; Luigi's Mansion and Animal Crossing. Love both those series
But 3DS would have to be a really cheap game system in order for me to buy it simply for the sake of those 2 games Maybe they should make a version that only plays games and none of those other features I can just buy and ipod...
