    This is unlike Nintendo though, normally they make barely any systems for launch. The original Wii they only made like 5 million for the WHOLE of Europe!! WTF? And the demand for that thing was crazy stupid. The adverts were everywhere! Remember the two Japanese guys knocking on the door of a family and showing them how the Wii worked... it was great advertising. Heck even the Gamecube had adverts at launch the giant glass cube in the shopping mall if I remember correctly.

    They need to seriously start pushing this thing otherwise its going to be a complete fail, they do not need another 3DS launch and have to cut the price four months down the line. I reckon with a push in advertising they could shift a lot more units and get people knowing about the Wii U then when PS4/720 are released drop the price by £50 and start taking a loss on the system making it more appealing to the struggling masses. They just gotta get the games out within the next two years before the other systems get launched.

    What are de advantages and disadvantages for transferring my Wii data to my WiiU. Obviously it would be the lack of Gamecube controller support.
    I'm having a fair share of VC titles on my Wii (NES/SNES/N64) and i'm still not sure whether to transfer or not. Then again, my Wii is showing its age.

    Yah it will take developers a year or two to realy get use to the new hardware platform. First gen games always look like crap. Granted the WiiU while it has a great GPU, the CPU isn't much of an upgrade. So multiplatform titles probably won't make very good use of the system's hardware.

    Hope the WiiU works better than the Wii.... My son got a Wii for Christmas and it's already getting ready to go back to the store because it doesn't work. Worked for all of 30minutes...now all I get is the BS "channel" screen and can't do anything from there....

    Finally, now other peeps can post in this thread as well. ;)
    But i'm shocked. Are you telling us you are selling your Wii U?

    The system has just been released. It needs a couple of months to shine, just like the Wii in the beginning. Became tired of Wii Sports real quick. :)

    I dont get how he was soo excited over the graphics in the first place.. if his PC really has Quad SLI, that would completely blow anything a console can do out of the water.

    But the problem is the eletric bill im paying 300+ dollars a month i wanted something small energy saver that can offer good graphics and the wii u has some good graphics but its not in the level of PC that im used to hopefully 720 or ps4 will come close.

    wow you run those 4 on that single psu. I have that motherboard and only 1 single 7970 with a 1200w coolermaster silentprogold and am now considering getting 3x3gb 580s :) Not very expensive and probably still better than 2 way crossfire 7970. I don't game for more than 2-3 hours a day in the week so my power bills wouldn't be too bad with most being desktop work.

    Mario Zelda metroid, where's the new ips I'm sick of Nintendo making so much milk money, with all there profits give us some original games not gimmicks and rebranded brain killing nonchalant. Worse than cod and ea put together why because thay sell more of the same shirt than them.
