    Check the game I linked to in my previous post- it uses the touchscreen for a tactical screen,inventory and ranged attacks.

    I keep thinking this seems like a step back. The Wii got people off the couch and stopped them holding onto a 'normal' controller with two hands, this just sticks a small screen between those two hands. Maybe it is just evolution rather than revolution; Wii-HD using the Wii plus remotes. All down the the game designers now!

    But at what cost? It costs an arm and a leg already, you could get about half a years gym fees with that or even more

    I mean all in around £270 not including the games. Remember the WII fit cost over £50 quids. and then you need to buy extra controllers ifyou want your mates to join in. Of course it's long term investment. But WII could break down, your gym won't

    But it is a kind of exercise that makes it fun for the whole family and gets you doing some exercise rather than finger bashing lol

    This will be picked up by the causal gamers who want the latest tech out but for those gaming on the PS3/X360 there is no incentive to buy this machine.

    I admit that I bought a Wii it was fun at first but I can't forgive Nintendo for the dire game list that followed. I think most gamers would have learnt their lesson from the Wii.

    I agree with the games list to extent. They had some great titles in Mario, Metroid and Mari Kart, but I'm still waiting for Mario Kart 2.. if it ever comes out, they don't produce many good quality games. They focus on quantity not quality.

    This game is not Mario BTW.

    Perhaps some of you should have a look. All I can here is moaning at Nintendo about NOT including different games,and I link to an example of a different game and people don't bother looking,and still keep moaning.

    I'm pretty sure they are full analogue control sticks not Circle Pads as seen on the 3DS

    It seems the Wii U might have a GPU similar to that found in an HD6670:
