^didnt ps3 come with a hdmi cable at one point?
some of the xbox models came with an hdmiFun Fact: Wii U is the first console to come with HDMI cables.
Your only chance to get a Wii U at this point in time is to go to a store who's doing a first come, first serve situation.
I hope I can snag one at Nintendo World. Since Amazon and Nintendo had a falling out, there's going to be a few extra units in the wild.
Nah fam. This is an actual console with a tablet controller.Wait so is this a handheld/controller unit?...as in it can be taken with you to work?...my wife LOVES the old school super Mario, so she would love super Mario WiiU....I just don't need another home system, as we have a Wii already, but if she can take this with her, I might be picking it up for her bday...
Let's cut the "kid" crap out. One opinion isn't the representation of the whole world. The fact that the thing is back ordered for the next few months and ebay prices fetching in the $700 range proves you are wrong. This console appeals to young kids and old school Nintendo heads. I wouldn't expect it to be big on NT but the reception elsewhere is mostly positive.lol that sounds about right...i mean at least for me at the moment.
I'm not moved by this console yet.
will pass by the nintendo store in manhattan tomorrow to see the crowds

I'm heading over there in a little bit to try to pick up a console at midnight.
not really ps3 didnt just fly off the shelves matter fact out of the last big 3 systems for awhile ps3 was dead last... hell xbox 360 just start outselling the original wii. Ppl said the same thing about the last set of systems and the wii clearly outsold the others. The nntendo will always sell/do well simply off of its vast variety of game genres, novelty, and fun factor. The other two are basically sports, 1st person shooters/rpgs, and grand theft/sleeping dog etc type of games etc... for the most part. ppl for some reason think the vast majority of game players just want to play those type of games only. But history and sales prove otherwiseselling out / backordered / ebay prices are horrible arguments for this.
all those 3 can be accounted for a couple of things.
You dont know how many units Nintendo Produced.
They could've purposely made less to create hype.
This has always happened with console releases the last couple of years (selling out, hype, ebay)
Plus Xmas is around the corner, so parents of the demographic this console excites are going ape **** for it.
Bruh, you could play games online back in the 90's on a PC, but it was still revolutionary when consoles added it as a main feature in 7th gen consoles. The very fact that the Wii U is the first console with this feature IS revolutionary for console gaming. At the end of the day comparing PC gaming to console gaming is an apples and oranges debate.Welcome to 06 with Steam on PC
