The Inside Story on the Making of Nintendo’s Wii U
Judging by the lines at Nintendo’s E3 booth, Nintendo’s Wii U is a hit, but the system could have been a lot different if Nintendo had listened to its inner demons.  Global President Satoru Iwata says the idea of a two-screen, video game system was something the company went back and forth on—and didn’t finalize until nearly a year and a half into the development process.
Work on the Wii U began in 2008—one year after the Wii hit retail shelves and began to take over the videogame industry. But there was much internal debate before the schematics were finalized.

Hardcore gamers tend not to like gimmicky approaches like the original Wii or the Wii U, especially when the entire console is built around it, but think Nintendo has a hit on their hands here?

So what will you be doing on Election Day? We genuinely hope that Master Chief’s continued battle against the Covenant — and possible Forerunner AI — don’t trump your civic duty to vote, but we understand if you wait until after 10am to head to the polls. Of course, the better question is: Who’s picking up their copy at midnight AND voting the next morning? source

Nintendo - promising more than they can deliver?

  • excited Yesterday Nintendo announced a new console, and it seemed pretty awesome. From the touch screen controller to the HD graphics, the Wii U was proving itself to be a console that could compete. It was exciting seeing Nintendo stepping up to be a real competitor.
  • disappointed It seems that Nintendo used some footage from the competition during their press conference. Some of the games they showed weren’t from their new console, but from the current-gen Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Which is kind of embarrassing.  source

Nintendo’s new console steps up to compete, finally
The Wii U takes the controller a step further: The new Nintendo console will remind you a bit of their handheld DS. It has a touch screen in the controller, which will add a bit to gameplay. In addition, the Wii U will be the first Nintendo system to feature HD graphics. The controller can also be used to make voice calls and run old Nintendo games, which is pretty awesome. It’s going to come out next year, but there hasn’t been a price announced yet. Expect that controller to be pretty expensive, though. source
