As Ive said before, I'm not optimistic the Wii U will end up being any better for core gamers than the Wii was. Those of us who haven't been big on the Wii ths gen should probably just steer clear and leave it for those who still enjoy what Nintendo puts out.
If by "Core Gamers" you mean fans of online playing such as XBL with a single userID for all games, DLC, or actively wanting game patches...
I'm not to likely to think Nintendo will come through this time either, but the MK7 framework tends to indicate they have the pieces for such a system.
In terms of games portability Nintendo looks to be going out of their way to make porting friendly/easy so to big titles should start to be day one releases in parity with the other systems.
If, and it is a BIG IF, Nintendo gets the online playing portion right, they could be even more dangerous than this past generation as Sport Game fans have funds to spend and will spend freely, yearly, to get what they perceive as the best version of their particular game.
