So what we're looking at should be what? $300-$350?

I dont understand why they didnt put bluray in there but whatever...if the proprietary disc that they use is better than an hd-dvd its not like its going to be a huge problem.

I just really dont see why nintendo refuses to adopt dvd playback.

looks like the wii is trying to get into the tablet business..... which to be honest if the ps3 had one of these controllers I'd be all over it

yea but I bet a second controller will cost around $75, unless they design the games to work with one new controller and multiple wii remotes?

Single touch resistive and probably low res touch screen with sub VGA res camera. :rofl: I'm probably going to pass on this shit.

Nintendo can have some good ideas but they continue to use ghetto tech to cut costs, and that kills it.

Not really the intent of the product at all, not sure why you're comparing it to the Vita.

why do i compare the wii u to the vita? You ask?

Because im willing to bet Sony can make the Vita act as a satellite controller for the ps3 and its software. Not sure if there is a legal patent Nintendo has in place but i see no reason other than that why it cant happen.
