Niche market? You realize that in terms of units sold, the Wii "won" this generation, right?

The "launch window" games will be be pretty decent. Based on what I've played at the past two E3s and some private events since then, obviously Mario will be a fun title to have at the holiday parties, but I'm really looking forward to Pikmin 3. That said, Pikmin 3 uses the GamePad pretty unimpressively compared to some of the other titles out there, such as ZombieU and NintendoLand.

Almost here! Doing the midnight launch. I have to get Ninja Gaiden 3; nostalgic reasons. I had the original on NES as a kid. Hayabusa is back where he belongs. Ah that new system smell

No, I have the ad in hand (literally in my hand as I type this). It says, "ALL Xbox 360, Wii U & PS3 video games priced 59.99 or more!" It also has a picture of ScribbleNauts UNLIMITED(which is starting to look extremely tempting btw) and AC3(Wii U version). So $45 per game But again, this is a "All Day Friday & Saturday!"

Just got a call from Gamestop where I preordered my deluxe wii u. they only received 5 total Wii U consoles. I am the ONLY one of them that get's a Deluxe. Happens that I was the first one to preorder at that store and they only got 1 deluxe.

when they called i was starting to freak out. i heard a lot of people didn't get theirs b/c they didn't receive enough.

Decent? Anything above 7 is pretty damn good if you ask me.

Least we forget there are some solid eShop titles as well. Factoring those in I'd say this is a really good launch lineup with a lot of variety.

A couple reviews are coming in for Wii U at IGN. Arkham City gets a 9.5 and Darksiders gets a 7.5, which are the same scores for the 360/PS3 versions, as well.

And for that 9.5 for Batman AC. I still haven't played it despite the fact that Batman AA was/has been one of my favorite games of this generation. Needless to say, I will be purchasing this in a couple hours.

I've been wanting one of these more and more. Are they going to be scarce?

I do wish they had just done the fancy tablet controller as a Vita type super-DS or something instead of a core component but then again I was hoping the Vita would be more integrated into the PS3 than it is, too.
