Good: What can I say? It's Nintendo, when don't they deliver the goods?
Bad: The waiting.
Comment: It looks fantastic, the graphics, the innovation, the controller, the games. I'm way too excited to say I've got just under a year to have to wait for it. I love the inclusion of the touchscreen it's a bit like the Dreamcast in a way but like a billion times better! I just wonder how Nintendo and developers are going to use this to their advantage. I've heard it's more powerful than 360 and PS3 which will shut them up since power and graphic is ALL those consoles have.
BTW: Richard, it does have built-in accelerometer and gyroscope so yeah it's like PS3 and PSP but one that's been made in heaven.
Comment: It looks brilliant. Can't wait to see it in action and to find out how much it is going to cost.
Good: Awesome controller, Good games
Bad: Looks SUPER expensive
Comment: This console looks awesome! The only possible downside I can conceive of is the almost certain expensiveness of this console. Hopefully I can sell my Wii and put that cash towards this awesome console.
Good: looks like it'll be a very compelling SINGLE- PLAYER CONSOLE
Bad: takes everything that was great about the wii and throws it into the fireplace
Comment: what will all the families that relied on the wii to shut the kids up for a while playing tennis do now? and i don't suspect there'll bea wii fit u
Good: HDMI and innovation
Bad: All balls and no brain once again from nintendo
Comment: Not impressed, its nice to see more innovation within gaming but i think this is the wrong direction. Not including the motion sensors and other direct play the new controller will do very little to improve gaming - reminds me of remote play already offered with the PS3 and PSP.
Comment: suped-up gamegear anyone???
Comment: Not convinced by the controller, but 1080p Wii? Count me in!
Comment: It sounds like it is going to be expensive - at least the controller does anyway...
