If it's crap ... We'll tell you

Um, guys? The fact that it has a separate charger is BRILLIANT. You don't have to be near the device to charge it now! Just plug it into to whatever plug is closest in your bedroom or bathroom and yer good to go!
I agree with Jeff. I think it's neat and pretty cool to have if you have one, but I can patiently wait until I hear what the system has to offer in the upcoming months. Plus I think I can speak for a lot us when I say we are all curious about the new Ps4/720 (whatever they call it) can bring onto the plate to compete against this. And if the Nintendo Wii U can bring me (Dead Space 3, Bioshock Infinite, The new Tomb Raider, etc) then I might purchase this sooner than later but I doubt that those games will be on Wii U, at least not for now anyway.
My roommate bought one and its in the living room. Not having bought it, its freaking awesome! Nintendoland is so damn fun.
Lol, do you really think they did the controller charger thing on purpose? One extra power outlet isn't the worst thing for true hd finally being available.
i wanna play Aliens:Colonial marines on this system.
@ lexloco this is true, the first thing they teach in computer science hardware is that the costs of keeping a chip small enough to fit in a computer or console and to perform better is an exponential function in terms of price increase in relation to time & progress (rough summary).

Serious gaming means something completely different than what you're getting at. You're just talking about the average Joe playing games. not anything legit about it since you're not making any money out of it. Honestly Pikmin is in the same level as Assasin's creed.
I do think PS4/NeXtbox will be more powerful AND have a lot of the same multimedia features as WiiU and will probably package them more maturely, so I'm not rushing out to get a WiiU right now. I'm just saying that I don't think we can tell how powerful WiiU is based on their launch lineup, and since it will probably be the cheapest, it doesn't have to be as pretty as competitors so long as it can hold its own and play basically the same games. I dont' think it'll have trouble doing that because I don't think there's a lot of places for games left to go in terms of photorealism.
I am completely unconvinced the gap between WiiU and PS4 / Xboxwhatever is going to be as great as people seem to think it is. It's definitely not going to be anything like the gap between Xbox360/PS3 and Wii. I say this because of the escalating cost associated with better and better graphics. If development costs get too high, prices are going to have to rise past $60. If prices rise beyond $60, fewer games will sell. There are a lot of games priced at $60 right now that aren't worth it. So basically, there's going to come a time when we reach a threshold level where its just not worth it to make a game look any better, and I think this is the first generation where we're really going to start feeling that play out.
In any case, cartoony art styles don't show off a system's graphical prowess, and 3rd party developers who have no experience with coding for this new machine, and nearly a decade of experience coding for PS3/Xbox360, are not going to make games that really take advantage of the hardware that's there. I dont' think we'll really know what the WiiU is capable of until we get a mature-oriented 1st party Nintendo game (like a Metroid, Zelda, or FZero game). Nintendo really screwed the pooch not having anything like this at launch, but I think it'll take seeing what Nintendo can do with their own hardware to really get a metric for how powerful this thing is.
