Wii-U Nintendo innovating again

Wii-U, or how Nintendo is taking a new direction again. My feelings toward this new console are still unclear. I’m too shocked to give a verdict. It’s too soon and the presentation of Nintendo was only an introduction of the system’s capabilities  and its awesome new controller. Anyway, I’m going to wait until some real games be developed so we would have a better idea of the real power of this new system.

The Pros:

  • The controller: If the designers use it wisely, it can be a great addition to the game experience
  • Graphics: It seems that the graphics are going to be better than Xbox360/PS3
  • The games (ZELDA!!!), good third party games

The Questions:

  • Price: I don’t want to sell a kidney to buy one, how much is going to cost a controller alone?
  • Release date: 2012? It feels like an eternity
