pretty good lineup; I know Reggie said they have even more unannounced titles that are in the works.

Honestly, is Nintendo themselves even going to take advantage of the HD graphics? I don't think Ninja Gaiden even counts, seeing as those games were launched onto the PS3 and did have the HD graphics.

Wow, that is a lot of games that are or will already be out on PS3 and 360... and not even among the better ones of the last year at that.

All I'm seeing of this console so far is a lot of cost for technology and games that are already available at significantly lower prices.

Very unappealling device.

I am not at all impressed to be honest. With the Wii U and the games that are at the launch line up. With Nintendo region blocking the Wii U, I can honestly say I am even less interested in this gaming system as well.

Yes, the console looks like it will be left in the dust by the other consoles like the Wii was this gen (would it be called last gen now?). Yes, the launch lineup is decent, but a majority of the games that look good are available on PS360.

Is it worth buying at launch? Probably not.

Is it worth buying at some point? Of course it is (maybe a while after launch). I mean the next Zelda, Bayonetta, Mario, and Smash Bros will be on it exclusively. Like it or not I will be buying it to play them.

Wow, a launch full of ports. Way to go Nintendo. It is interesting to see Ninja Gaiden 3 is being published by Nintendo. This will be only the 3rd M-rated game Nintendo has published in its history.

Bayonetta 2 isn't a launch title. It will be out sometime next year.

I have an eye on a few, but it really depends on content of the ports or how they differ from the other version. There really need to be more substantial games than ports, though. Doesn't look healthy, but we'll see in the future.

...It looks like an Xbox360. I hope it isn't frail like one.

And nothing worth that's coming out to actually make me get a Wii U... I recently just got a Wii for 100 dollars for christmas last year...will probably do the same for the Wii U too, wait a few years for it to drop in price.

I know the great console wars of old are long over, but it still amuses that one of the day 1 launch titles for the Wii U is a Sonic game.
