Dude, face it. The GameCube's a dead console.
There still are game cube controller slots on the Wii.
The newest model of the Wii removed them, actually.

Seriously guys, Nintendo isn't going to support the GameCube anymore. It's an old console. Why do you all think the system needs GameCube controller ports? Did you guys react that way when the N64 wasn't compatible with Super Nintendo or NES games?

The thing that I am going to have trouble adjusting to is probably going to be the next smash bros game. Without a gamecube controller to play it with im going to feel lost playing it. I tried playing brawl with the other methods minus the classic controller and I just felt lost and unable to adjust to the different control style. Besides that though I really don't have a problem losing the gamecube controllers as outside of brawl I only used them for the GC games anyway.

Relevant information to Deluxe buyers:

The eshop rewards program functiond when you make any purchases for the Wii U (and possibly 3DS). A 59.99 game like new Super Mario bros U will get you 599 points, and 500 points equals 5$ for either the Wii U and 3DS eshops.

This lasts until the end of 2014.

Sounds good, I could fill up some room with (hopefully) Gamecube games from the VC.

What you forgot to mention specifically that I heard is that it is only for downloadable versions of the game.

It's a nice offer. Myself however I get better deals than that on the boxed versions of games(Which I prefer) from newegg.com so this is only going to be relevant to me for download only games(Plus im getting about $15 or more off the normal price on Wii U titles at launch.) That is fine with me though as I don't have an external HD to use anyway so all those downloads would have probably ate at my 32 GB pretty fast thus forcing me to buy an external HD.

I'm excited for it. I'm also wondering why the heck Sony and Microsoft aren't scrambling to make new consoles ASAP. I mean, the top selling system is about to get a sequel.

I hear it's good but until they make something more powerful I'm not interested.

There's no bother. People buy Nintendo consoles for Nintendo games. The next gen consoles will surely supersede it, and the fact that you have to buy an "pro" controller to get a familiar experience will make a lot of people pass.

At last, after so many arguments, it's finally come forth.
And as I said so many times and so many of you nasty pessimists tried to pull out everything in the books to shut it down.

Price is $300 (only 50 more bucks than the wii at launch) to 350$ with Nintendo land and 32 gigs. Everyone said the price would be absurd, I thought if they made it $400 or more it would have been reasonable, I mean xbox 360 and PS3 were wallet slayers when they came out, but no, Nintendo let us keep our money so we can get a game or 2, some food, maybe even some ganja to go home and play.

It seems to have a strong anticipated line up already with great 3rd party support (ie Ninja gaiden 3, Assassins creed 3, Darksiders 2, Black ops 2..) and the exclusives Nintendo land and Mario bros wii U seem awesome. Many people already confirming Nintendo land is actually a good game, especially in comparison to Wii sports as a starting game.

Controller, as reported a billion times yet you all still seemed to disagree, is comfortable and practical to play, and of course now it offers much more dynamics to the game with a touch screen interface, so we're not only getting a more powerful system but it actually adds to your gaming experience without taking so much away.

And support for outside hardrives with USB 2.0 means memory is less expensive (fucking buying a whole new special hard drive for the system) and much more accessible. Storage is not a problem here.

Fuck you guys, this is awesome, be happy you ungrateful cunts.

It's good that they're making something new(ish) and I can see the potential, but I'm still not going to buy it. Badass console or not, most Nintendo games don't appeal to me.


This is my signature. It is a nice signature.

It isn't the most powerful, no, but it has a strong library at least(compared to the Wii), and is on par with the PS3 and XBox 360. Innovative, too.

Out in the US tomorrow. Who else got one?

I hope the system will still be in stock by Christmas and I won't have to jump through hoops to get it. I'm hyped as hell for this thing.

I am one of the few to preorder it, but more than double the number of Wiis were preordered. Hopefully mine is in stock, as well as New Super Mario Bros. U, which is also oversold. I just want my games. Don't care about much else.

Does the Wii U only use Wifi like the Wii did or can you use an ethernet cable? Mine won't behere until later this week so I can't find out until then.

I made a thread for listing everyone's Nintendo IDs.

Basically all you have to do is enter someone's ID, and they will accept you. Feel free to submit your Nintendo ID for Miiverse.

Awesome! The Nintendo Network sounds actually very impressive to me, I'm behind on my Wii U features reading so I don't know half the shit that's been announced about the console, but I'm hoping to get one by Christmas.

Well, Mario will obviously be a big hit, Nintendo Land will divide the fan base once more, and ZombiU... well, I know next to nothing about it.

I'm just gonna wait until I hear about a game that will make innovative use of the GamePad screen (read: more than just an extra screen) before I get one (but I need money to do that :( )... that, or just get Lego City Undercover, Arkham City, or the next Smash Bros when they come out


Nothing short of seven flavors of awesome sauce... with some extra-violence glaze on the side!

The game pad is huge. It really shocked me when I saw it.

Still, no one answered my question.

Use Bill Me Later on Ebay if you can, or use it on WalMart(also accepts it). If you think you can have it saved by then you should be able to pay it off by then instead and get it sooner.
