    Nintendo announced its brand new home console at their E3 press conference earlier this week. It is slated for release in 2012.

    The IBM microprocessor is based on the one used in the Watson supercomputer.

    The Wii U will kick our asses in Jeopardy.

    Except they had to tell Watson when to buzz in... that was the only downfall to him.

    i think nintendo should not release the wii u just yet because see how all the other consoles are taking there time in making their product what this release is going to do is once again putting nintendo in last place or maybe pump up to second this time because yes all those things their putting in on the wii u sounds great but isn't it obvious they are putting the same things that the other consoles already have not putting effort in putting in something ahead like built in 3d capabilities and/or putting in a ram that runs higher than 4 ghz making an internal memory or external over 1 terabyte.

    imsorrywhat?

    You might of forgotten the Wii is currently in "first place"... That, and releasing their console so early is putting clear pressure on Sony and Microsoft. With the Wii U going to have probably a year, maybe even more on the other companies' console, it's going to steal a portion of the market that would otherwise be spread across the consoles in sales. An early release can be extremely beneficial to sales, so long as the product is released early due to well-spent production time, and not because of rushing the product's release. Point being, I think Nintendo already has a foothold in the next gen market, simply from an early release.

    What? Posting on topic?
    Uh...
    Sounds awesome, the WiiU specs.
