That's a quote from myself. I'm about to tell you the very reason why myself and you guys should not be excited about the Wii U and why I think it is a let down.
No DVD Player
Nintendo announced there will be no DVD Player. This is a huge letdown. Even the PS2 can play DVDS. So can the Xbox. Nintendo is 3 generations behind. To me that is a huge letdown and another reason just to not buy it at all. Sorry Nintendo.
Can not play GameCube
If Nintendo's reasoning for this is "it's 2 generations behind" then I'm not going to be very happy. Even PS3 can play PS1 Games. And besides, if you are like me who goes from GameCube, to Wii, then to Wii U I still have GameCube games that need played. Of course the Wii U will play Wii games. But so does the Wii itself. So the Wii U is not proving itself any better.
No normal controller
Assuming everybody has seen the new controller, it is obviously not traditional like the PS or Xbox controllers are. Playing games on that thing is going to be impossible. And with no GameCube compatibility for the controller it is going to be really hard playing games with either the tablet, or the Wii remote.
It's not original
The name Wii U? Seriously? Just add a "U" at the end, fancy controller, and HD and you are almost at the same level as Xbox 360. And it looks a lot similar to the Wii also. Kind of like DS to 3DS. Nintendo is running out of ideas.
I'm not sure if I changed your opinion or not, but that is just my 3 cents. Please discuss whether you think Wii U will be a success or not.
