Well logically accounting for inflation, it's not much more than $50 was worth in 2006 (and actually less than when the gamecube launched; $50 in 2001 is worth $64.68 now), but who uses logic when it comes to complaints about video game announcements? Yeah I'm not too happy with it regardless, but I'll just deal with it.

I'm slightly disappointed with game prices, but there's only one launch game I'll be buying anyway. I'll be going after the Deluxe version as well, so that sounds like fun. I wonder how much I'll be using the Game Pad VS the Wii Remote.

Simply because it's new, I imagine I'll be trying out the GP for a while after my initial purchase.
I'm a horrible person.

That means they'll cost $70 here. Ouch.

Thanks for the source because of the censor. It was suprising to see that the Wii U actually costs less than an Atari 2600 adjusted for inflation.

I'm 25 and my parents still buy me Christmas presents, so I know what I'm asking for!

Wii U's browser looks much more versatile than I thought: 

Quote from: D-e-f-;42268300
How can you know that now? If it runs really well and loads fast (which the extra RAM may finally enable them to do?!) then why not call up the browser on the tab to post a stupid screenshot of Link destroying all the furniture in Zelda's bedroom on GAF, for example?

Btw I went ahead and screencapped Iwata's browser presentation:


Ret's have a rook ...


two-screen browsing


browser-tabs in action!


browse only on the gamepad


video on both screens


video on the TV and browse on the pad


browser has curtains!


for such awesome secrets like...


BANANAIWATA


Motionscrolling! Wooo (?)


Take screenshots from your Wii U games with this fancy button.


That's the end result.


Nintendo TVii also looks useful:

Missed the boat on GameStop pre-orders. I'm set up so they call me when they get extras, but if anyone has alternatives (for guaranteed purchases), I'm listening.

Super excited, but not quite so much for the mad-dash release date that coincides with the holidays. Still, congrats to Nintendo; looks like they've got plenty of sales in the bag.

Calling someone on Wii U Chat is a seriously surreal experience. You sit there staring into your own face while listening to insane carnival music and praying the party you're calling notices the subtle flashing of their GamePad's home button light. They probably won't. They're probably not even using a GamePad.

The music plays on.

I don't have any family or friends that have a Wii U.  People I've slept with have it though. 

Regardless, I've never seen my Home button light up nor even known that it would have meant I had a Wii U Chat call.  Sorry Lizard Dude.  Are you going to be in the D.C. area in the future.  Maybe we could catch the new Star Wars movie when it comes out.

A casualty of the recent update that improves loadtimes is the Nintendo Land loading music. I never get to hear my favorite part anymore!

Nintendo Land? I don't get my funky 70s Lego City music for as long anymore!
