Wii U

It’s a bird! It’s a carp! The weirdest thing about Nintendo’s press conference

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wi5ga3mYp0c[/youtube] Remember that time when Nintendo showed an awkward trailer for Wii U that showed a bird flying around and carp jumping from the water? That was weird. That and the new crossbow controller looked pretty silly. Any other things about the conference that made you say WTF?

Gut reaction: What do you think of Wii U?

The console’s graphics look no better than PS3. It features a primary controller that streams video from the console. It’s backwards compatible with Wii games, Wiimotes, and other Wii peripherals. It supports interoperable mutliplayer with 3DS. It appears to have an abnormally high interest from HD developers. Your thoughts?
