This has me confused. Nintendo and Wii ushered in the new era of gesture based gaming and now they are going back to a handheld monster controller? Doesn't make any sense to me!!!! I am not a gamer, but this looks strange. How will you use both this tablet controller and the Wiimote? So have they given up on the wiimotes? They could have definitely added more features and functionality to that device than make an entirely new one!
Only one tablet will be compatible with the system, meaning I expect them to push the Wii Remote more. It's a brilliant idea, considering the large number of people that already have Wii Remotes. Add that, coupled with the fact that there are currently no new competing consoles and the new gimmick of taking the game with you, and you have the next big hit on your hands. And they were smart to keep "Wii" in the name.
I'll definitely get it because Nintendo makes the greatest games of all time, and the recent years have only reinforced said belief.
My top 10 favorite video games of all time list probably consists solely of Nintendo games, aside from the very best one there is: Demon's Souls. It was released in North America on October 6, 2009 by a niche Japanese developer known as "From Software," and I fell in love with it. And to think, it was almost not released in North America and Europe.
Its spiritual successor, Dark Souls, will be released on both the PS3 and 360. Sony has the rights to the Demon's Souls IP, so they could not make a direct sequel if they wanted to release it on the 360.
