Wii U

Pretty standard rote coming from Nintendo. Especially when rumors like this start going around. True, this is just rumor. Then again, what objective is there for someone to fabricate something like this. Secondly, can Nintendo continue to push current stagnant Wii sales with almost no big titles coming through in the coming Months for the home console? It's a given that a new console will come. And judging by current feelings coming from investors and analysts, this seems to be the right conditions for Nintendo to show what they have next.

Discussion commence.

That's weird.  I could've sworn the Wii2 was confirmed a while ago.

I remember seeing an article about a rumored "Wii 2.0" a long time ago. Maybe 2009, early 2010?

That wasn't from a very good source though.

I've seen them too, but they were all speculation and predictions. But this one claims that it's now totally legit and sure to be announced this E3.

Sure this is just another rumor. But it also makes sense. The Wii craze is officially dead and stagnant. Time to let it live out the rest of it's cycle and start talking about next gen.

This is basically DS functionality in home console form. Nintendo probably wont be using 3D on those controllers. Or that could hurt the 3DS itself.

Also, this makes local Mario Kart parties much more convenient not having to use split screen like that.

This looks like the handhelds-as-controllers stuff they've been trying to make work since the GBA and Gamecube, and it never caught on.  I'm not sure how I feel about it.
Probably not a Goat, either.

It never worked because of the peripherals you had to buy for it. (console, handheled, cable) The Cafe solution is ready out-of-the-box and potentially open to any game developed for it. The only thing it needs is rechargable batteries built-in as well. That's one of the things that sucked about Wiimotes, forcing you to buy more batteries or paying for a recharge package.

I like the idea a lot, worried about battery life and cost of the thing. They could do a lot of neat things with that.
