Call me old school, but the new Mario on Wii U looks sweet. Reminds me of Christmas morning when I got a Super Nintendo and popped Super Mario World in for the first time. I was blown away.

I love Newegg for new games. I haven't paid $60 for a new game in a couple years now. Of course, I have to really want a game to even pay $48 for it. The rest I just wait for the under $30 deals or the buy 2 get one deals.

I thought about waiting in line for one, but I just couldn't pull the trigger. There just isn't anything to get all that excited about. To me, this is going to go the exact same way the Wii went. You get it, you think wow I can see tons of uses for this controller as you play the tech demo(nintendo land instead of wii sports), and then it never becomes anything more than a gimmick. There is one AAA title launching and not only is it basically the same Mario you have played 1000 times, the wii u pad is used to...draw some blocks? Awesome. All that time to find something creative to use the pad for and we get drawing blocks and other small interactions. Yawn. Sure, it would be nice to have one for the occasional great title like Zelda, but for the most part people are still going to buy cross platform releases on the other more powerful systems.

Sounds like Nothing has changed.

Wii U = Kids and casual gamers

360 and PS3 = Teens, Adults and hardcore gamers

What's disappointing about the Wii is that we never got to see it's potential until the console was already irrelevant. The release of Wii-Motion Plus technology shed light on the true capabilities, the use of Wii-Motion Plus in Skyward Sword completely immersed the user in the game's combat system. The wii-mote was the sword, the nunchuk worked as the bow, and each item was utilized by the motion system in the innovative way. The system went over so well that Eurogamer compared its importance to the groundbreaking use of the analoge stick in Mario 64. Hailed as the Game of the Year by many publications, for those who haven't played it, I'd recommend the game to everybody. (It falls just after Ocarina of Time for my favorite Zelda game.)

A review that still stands out to me was one that pointed out that had a title like this accompanied the Wii's launch, the system could have avoided the majority of it's shovelware and inspired third party titles to truly pursue the console's limits, and many reviewers lamented that this title had to arise months after the Wii was declared a dead console (Thereby limiting its sales and userbase.)

Applying this analysis to the Wii U, the question becomes whether the Wii U has launched with games that go the extra mile to explore its potential. If it does, third parties could jump on and we could see truly innovative and enjoyable content with the system, but, if not, we could see a rehash of the shovelware laden gimmicks that plagued the Wii.

I've got a Wii, but no PS3 or Xbox360. I'm thinking of acquiring one of the latter at some point but don't have any interest in the WiiU.

Perhaps if it ended up having the juice to push stuff like Madden or GTA I would, but after amassing a stack of worthless Wii games I'm done with that.

/too old for this shit.

Oh...and $350 for a new 360 with Halo 4 or $300 for a PS3 with Assassin's Creed still seems overpriced to me for consoles that have been out for this long.

If either was $150 I'd have one of either by now.

buy the cheap xbox the 199 priced 4gb model and put in an old laptop hard drive for extra space. thats what i did. I now have a 320 gig hard drive in my xbox and the cost of the drive was an old dead laptop. Its pretty ****ing easy to flash the hard drive using a computer. Took me 10 min to figure it out.

All you need is a usb flash drive a computer and an old laptop hard drive.
