I looked up the console and the specs for the CPU and GPU haven't been released yet.

The article stated the wii u will be slightly better than the ps3 and x box but with the ps4 and next Gen x-box coming out and tack onto that the prices of all three consoles I think Nintendo is in trouble.

Nobody knows to what extent it's stronger than current gen, rumors are around that at launch it'll be on the same level or higher, and after a year or two of use they will be able to push the limits of the system more and produce up to 50% or so more.

As for "being in trouble", graphics don't sell consoles. The Wii U will be cheaper, run at full 1080p HD, and have not only their normal giant sellers (Zelda/Mario/Metroid/Donkey Kong/Pikmen, etc), but full third party support and huge games like Bayonetta 2/ZombiU, the Call of Duty series (Black Ops 2 already announced and shown off for it, full 1080p 60 frames per second) and probably many more in the works, while still having tons of family games with an interesting new controller to capture the casual players, I don't think they will be in trouble at all.

Personally I'll be getting all 3 major consoles at some point as I like having each console to keep all my options open to play all the great games available.

The second GamePad will be expensive, but the American version isn't even having the option to buy a second one until later down the road sometime. You will rely on the warranty to replace it if it breaks or something. The reason for this is because there are no American games that take advantage of two GamePads now or in the near future, thus they are going to focus on other business aspects for now.

Eventually one might want to buy a second GamePad if one so chooses whenever it is they come out, but that has nothing to do with how expensive the actual console/kit is, and you are not required to buy a second GamePad at all.

-----------------

On a side note, Black Mesa comes out tomorrow guys, if you own Half-Life 1 then make sure you download this mod and play it - it's a complete reconstruction of the game from the ground up.

I will be buying a WiiU purely for the inevitable Zelda release. That Zombie game M.C posted looks pretty awesome too.

I don't reckon there's any point comparing graphics of Nintendo's consoles to other next gen consoles. People buy Nintendo consoles either for their kids or to enjoy great Nintendo exclusives that they grew up with (Zelda, Donkey Kong, Mario, etc)

I hated the original Wii and I'd be very surprised if I ever take a look at the Wii U.

My only thought at the minute is when the next Gen Playstation/Xbox comes out, do I stick with Xbox, or do I go over to Playstation?
