    The Wii U is the newest Nintendo console, or rather version of their console, if you didn't already know.
    I am personally excited about this. It is bringing something new to the table. The controller looks very creative, and the graphics are much more impressive than the original Wii's.

    I have a few questions, though. Will Skype be supported on the controller? can real, maybe 3D games be run on the controller itself outside of a wii, making it a handheld as well?

    What will really make this system, though, are the games companies will make for it. I don't know about you, but I can imagine playing a Call of Duty game, and having my UAV on the controller's screen. Or playing a madden game, and having my playbook on the controller.

    Also, it pains me to imagine how much controllers will cost. The normal Wii controller cost $40 at start up, how much will this cost? $50? $60? $75?

    But if, unlike the current Wii, competitive and maybe, just maybe, fun games are made, this will be able to compete, I believe, with the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.
    What do you all think?

    First thing that comes to my mind:
    Cost of extra controllers.. Imagine how much just the controller is going to cost!

    And some people think Apple sucks but both companies are huge and have huge sales of their products. Just cause you don't like it doesn't mean they don't sale a single unit.

    Wii was a killer in the market.

    Personally I think this controller is gonna make some games very unique. But for me it will not be a day 1 purchase. Most likel will wait several months.

    Plus nintendo has great backwards compatibility support for their systems. I have gamecube games I still like to play and can do that with my Wii. Also the Wii Store brought back NES and SNES games. Nothing like playing the classics to bring back memories and frustration.
