FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Nintendo Messages Wii Owners Clarifying That The Wii U Is "An Entirely New System"

Posted on Wednesday, May 1 @ 17:34:16 PST by Alex_Osborn


The average consumer either has no clue what the Wii U is or they simply could care less about Nintendo's latest console. In an effort to enlighten the masses who purchased a Wii and still power it on from time to time, Nintendo has sent out a message via WiiConnect24 clearing up the Wii U confusion.

The message is as follows:

Did you know that you can play nearly all of your existing Wii games on Wii U? Your Wii controllers and many Wii accessories can also be used with a new Wii U console -- along with any downloaded games, save data, and other info stored in your existing Wii console.

Wii U is the all-new home console from Nintendo. It’s not just an upgrade -- it’s an entirely new system that will change the way you and your family experience games and entertainment. The second screen on the included Wii U GamePad controller enables never-before-seen ways to play games and enjoy TV. And for the first time ever, you can see Mario and your favorite Nintendo franchises in glorious HD.

Do you think this move by Nintendo will make much of an impact, or is this merely slapping a band-aid on one enormous gaping wound? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments below.
