Not many people have at the moment so give a month or two before lots more ID's are entered here.

I got Bobby B's ID but I am going to wait before listing mine publicly because I want to wait until my RL friends get their Wii U systems.

So, any of you who bought it who actually thinks the lower shoulder buttons were well created?

They are well placed and feel natural, there is no problem reaching them and it's comfortable for me, so yeah it's a good design.

Does the WiiU upscale Wii games to 1080p? Also are there any, or are they planning on releasing any HD GameCUbe ports?

I don't have a Wii U but apparently it does upscale Wii games to HD, but without anti-aliasing, so it's hard to notice.

Also are there any, or are they planning on releasing any HD GameCUbe ports?

If you mean like HD collections of Zelda or Mario games, then no. However, they did say that they plan on putting GameCube games on the Virtual Console.

Oh well this might deter me from purchasing one more exclusive games come out seeing as that I have dolphin emulator (I own the GC and Wii games). I just hate playing on my 23" monitor when I have a 55" tv in my living room.

No, wii games are in 480 or whatever p they play in. for the gamecube, i think so, there's a rumor of a hd wind waker

I suggest downloading the Rayman legends demo, it's a real blast!

Not many groundbreaking games so far but the system has a lot of store in the new future. If you're a fan of platformers New Super Mario Bros. U is a fantastic game along with the game that came with the Wii U, Nintendo Land I think it's called.

I got it for Christmas also, my ID is scparry if anyone wants to add me.

Zombi u is pretty good if you like being scared and action, Rayman legends was meant to be a release game but got delayed, when i comes out i recommend trying it out.

I'd recommend Nintendo Land if you have any number of people higher than 1. New Super Mario bros U is a traditional classic, and I heard good things from ZombiU.

Also, download the Rayman Legends demo. You won't regret it.

Nintendo really should have brought out an exclusive wii u game with online, not like zombi u but actual online play, i never find a match on assassins creed 3 and it looks like i have to wait until rayman legends and monster hunter 3 ultimate.

Anyone been having trouble playing assassins creed 3 multiplayer the last few days?

A few nights ago I had trouble playing it with one of my friends online. Every time we sent invites to eachother we got game session is no longer available messages when we accepted it and we couldn't find anyone in quick matches. The day after it was working fine again all was well. Last night it was having the same problem again.

Anyone else having that problem? Is ubisoft doing something crazy with their servers that keeps causing things to not work? Issue with the Wii U version only maybe? The fact that 2 of the last 3 nights it hasn't worked seems a little bad if you ask me.

I don't play it, not enough players so it takes too long to find a match.

I was playing on my friends Wii U and I must say that New Super Mario Bros. U is quiet the fucking shit; I want to pick one up just for all this nostalgia stuff. The Xbox and PS3 are great, but they just don't have many games like this.

That sounds like it has to do with Uplay more than Nintendo itself.
I guess since it does become perfectly fine at some points give it time to settle?

Nintendo has stated that virtual console games will be playable on the T.V, as well as the Gamepad only.
Sounds cool, sort of like a handheld but on a huge screen.

Hope they make them pro controller compatible. I lost access to my virtual console games with the data transfer because I don't own a classic controller and always used the gamecube controller.

They should make a usb gamecube controller for the wii u or wireless.
