Nintendo's Wii U Press Event 9/13/2012

So FINALLY we got some details on  Wii U today. Release date, price, and new added features. Bout bloody Time.

Price: There are two versions. Basic will be $300, comes in white, with 8GB internal storage, and comes with all your essentials. Premium will be $350, and comes in black, with 32GB, Nintendo Land, charging stand, and two year subscription to Nintendo Network Premium.

U.S. Release Date: November 18th, just in time for Black Friday. Ironically, that's before the Japanese release date, which will be Dec 3rd.

Nintendo TVii: Basically an app that turns your system into a cable box, much like what Microsoft's been doing with the 360. "Yawn..."

New Super Mario Bros U: Just some added modes, like Rush mode, which is pretty much a co-op speed-run mode, where everything speeds up, depending on how many coins you collect.

Platiunum Games: We already new about "Project P-100"from Platinum Games, which doesn't look like much at first glance, but once you see the gameplay, it's pure epicness. Now it's got a new name, "The Wonderful 100" and new trailer, but there was also another surprise. "Bayonetta 2"! It's an exclusive! Win!!!!

Some Activision Games...: Yeah, I really don't care. Skylanders Giants, 007 Legends, Transformers Prime, Wipeout, and Blops 2. Yay....

So there you have it. Can't say I'm too fond of the pricing, but considering all it can do, I'm surprised it doesn't cost more. Who can even complain anyways, when everybody's already lining up to get their new $500 dollar Apple products right now. The Basic edition seems pointless, since with the Premium, you're not only paying for more memory, but a full $50 game, and added accessories. I'd definitely be willing to get it at launch, if I actually have some cash at the time. How bout you guys? Worth it? Overglamorized? Or should Nintendo just quit? (Hint: Never!)
