Well... I'm glad that it's comfortable and light on the hands. That was my first concern when I saw the thing. Definitely wont be throwing this controller in fits of gaming rage.

It would of been nice if it was say... PSP size or something, but meh. Cheers for the impression guys.

Think the big trick for Nintendo here is backwards compatibility. This will help developers and gamers play Wii games but as always Nintendo's biggest problem historically is getting the right amount of games on the Wii U to make the inertia of the purchase happen.

It is Nintendo after all so they confounded everybody last time by capturing a market they knew existed that wasn't catered for. Maybe the serious gamer will give Wii U the HD console of choice (assuming multiplayer environment is up to speed).

I want HD in my BC.
If Nintendo can deliver that, I will buy it regardless of how crap the console is.

^ Reggie confirmed it doesn't upscale Wii games. It's possible you could play some of them on the small screen somehow, which would probably make them easier on the eyes. Not sure if it really matters to you, though.
