I'm actually pretty excited by the Wii U and hope Nintendo hits a home run with this one. Zombie U looks good. Mario should be great. Rayman should be awesome. Smash Bros, Bayonetta, etc. all eventual releases. I'm more excited for this than I was for the Wii (but not as much as for the gamecube - was all about Smash Bros Melee). Good sign the preorders sold out.
Watching the coverage on them makes me wonder how crazy it will get compared to the original Wii. One thing I don't understand is how people are already listing it on eBay. I saw the kotaku and other articles, but ebay doesn't let people list stuff before 30 days until it comes out. The people do have actual listings for the Wii U and not bogus random things, so I don't know how they sneak under the radar.
I wonder how it will be in a week or so when it hits the under 30 day mark.
