    THis was the real nintendo e3 2012. I didnt expected the news to be so damn good. Im suoerhyped now, i see great things in wii U future. Original new ips, third party support, big multiplatform franchises, big exclusives, bundles and functionality. There is just one thing that this console launch is lacking in order to be perfect and is a true first party big budget triple A game. But im pretty confident that ninte do will deliver.

    Good show guys. Got mine pre-ordered! This has to be one of the best if not the greatest console launch in terms of launch title/window games. So hyped!

    Just a PSA to my fellow Heartcasters:

    I just heard Gamestop is going to stop taking pre-orders for the Deluxe Bundle starting today, so if anyone still hasn’t pre-ordered get on it ASAP

    This launch is awesome, so may options, so many bundles, i think that nintendo has a winner here. The deluxe edition is already sold out on gamestop.

    How can one transfer system info like the DS systems if a household doesn’t have two TVs? Very glad I have pre ordered the deluxe version on the day of announcement of it. It would be tied between ZombiU and Assassin Creed 3.

    Actually, I DO have Netflix and Hulu Plus, and I think the crossover is a lot more common than you think. The two services do a good job of filling in the gaps in the other’s programming.

    Anyway, The Wii U…. I want one. NOW! Unfortunately, preorders (for the deluxe package) are already gone. However, there are plenty of preorders for the White Basic model leftover.
    This made me think … since each package is differentiated by color, do you guys think that the more popular model (which looks to be the black) may win out and become the more dominate color for the console? Obviously, the white model will sell some units, and until now, I’ve had the impression that Nintendo is pushing white as the definitive color for the Wii U. However, could the popularity of the black bundle mean that the black one will become the color used more often in marketing materials, box art, and so on and so forth? After all, a black Gamepad (not a white one) can be seen on NintendoLand’s box art.

    From the Intercontinental Champion:

    Will we hear more Wii U support from Japanese game developers and publishers at Tokyo game Show? Where was Konami, Atlus, and, SquareEnix? I’m hoping that they’ll show Dragon Quest X Wii U in action soon.

    Also….there’s no Riiiiiidge Racer!

    Feel free to leave my code from last week up on the page!

    I’m excited for Wii U launch. I asked for the premium bundle for Xmas. That plus wonderful 101 & Pikmin 3 by march next year are enough for me!
