    Your thoughts on the Wii-U?

    From first glance, it looked amazingly powerful. However, part of me wishes that Nintendo cameup with an entirely new idea rather than just make an advanced version of the Wii. I also expected there to be more of an emphasis on virtual reality (similar to Kinect).

    The Wii became revolutionary with it's motion controls, but the motion controls were only used in a handful of games. When the newer games rolled in, most of them didn't use of the motion control at all. I'm hoping perhaps the Wii-U can put an end to that.

    Also, I haven't seen much pictures of it, but the ones I have seen have big screens in the controller. Could someone explain what was going on there? Sad

    The Wii-U's gimmick is the touchscreen controller. Some games utilize both screens at once. For example, in Zelda, instead of bringing up the inventory, you can just touch an item on the controller. Some games allow you to switch screens. For example, if your dad wants to watch a TV program, you don't have to stop playing. You can just switch over to your controller.

    That's what I like the most about the console. There have been many times where I have been in the middle of an important mission, and then somebody walks in and says that they need to watch something on TV. I'm surprised no gaming company thought of this earlier.
