Strange that Nintendo hasn't announced the huge blowout conference date yet. We already have boxarts and now this so something is obviously close. Nintendo had already announced their 3DS conference by this time so it should come any day now

Probably they'll announce it at the upcoming Nintendo Direct. Or a bit after that. IIRC, the Fall Conference has always been right before the TGS.

I can't wait for the Wii U. Might be the first console I buy at launch. It will be nice to see Microsoft and Sony trying to catch up with the Wii U's technical prowess for a change.

As for the colour... White all the way!

That's funny. I laughed.

I'm still undecided whether I want a Wii U or a 3DS LL this Christmas ... the Wii U really needs to be priced accordingly and have something better than Pikmin and a sidescrolling Mario (even though they both look great, not a system seller for me)

Happy to see what I saw in a GAME store in Paris two weeks ago (posted in another topic) seems to be confirmed by another gaffer.
Black is one thing, other thing is, for PALland, the pre-orders at GAME expires at november 15th if I remember correctly my coupon, pointing out to a friday 16th release in Europe.

I don't want to disenchant, but it will take them a year to "catch up" and "take over"...
I don't think so. I expect the Wii U graphics to be easily on par with the next Xbox/PS4.

One technical area where Nintendo excel is loading times (something no-one mentions). The Wii loads games considerably faster than the current Xbox/PS3, and likewise with the DS compared to the PSP.

It's too far away. Oh well, hopefully there'll be some good Nintendo Directs to keep the hype alive until then.
