    I guess they don't want to hold a ipad when playing on wii u. And I was hoping the name would be better than this.

    I'm a bit surprised to be honest.

    EDIT:
    Unless the name is reason enough to sell your stocks :)

    Maybe they should've showed games for it.

    And everything will jump back up when it goes on sale. Or as more info is fed to people..

    This happened with the Wii announcement as well if i remember.

    Also look for a rise in their shares when 3ds starts to take off.. I was watching the e3 vids in 3d on my 3ds.. Most of those games look to be good. many with some good online features as well.

    Share price seems to be trading where it was at on Friday. Looks to be a non-story unless you were a day trader yesterday.

    lets stop trying to make people get up and move around..

    its their choice if they want to move... lets get back to dpads and better hardware, and better games... moving around and **** will make me turn off the game faster cause ill get tired after couple hrs of moving....

    Not sure if we're talking about the same console? :)
    The Wii U doesn't seem to be about moving around if you ask me. In the trailer, the only time someone is standing up is using the Wii controller.

    The same thing happened with the first Wii.
    So, isn't a big problem, because will start increasing a lot in the next months.
    Now is a great time to be a Nintendo's investor, lol.

    That controller reminds me of the Jaguar. No one wants to hold a huge peripheral when playing a game. 3DS is strike one and this is looking like strike 2 from early estimates.

    Jaguar/wii u controllers, virtually identical, good point.

    Do you think the Wii U controller is heavier or more uncomfortable than holding a PSP or DS? Remind me, did they sell many of those?

    i expect this is stupid investors on par with commentors on gamespot's E3 coverage, who thought it wasn't a new console, and just another wii peripheral
    because a controller peripheral can supercharge a console can't it? :rolleyes:

    I love my 3ds, but I will not be buying this unless significant upgrade graphics to ps3/360 which looks like it's not. My iPad 2 can do this $hit.

    when Nintendo release Mario and Zelda on the ipad, I'll consider purchasing one, but if you are happy with ipad2 gaming, im pretty sure the wii u will be wasted on you.
