I believe Shipwreck is dead wrong about the wii U being on the television circuit. The only reason the Wii got any press is because it was something completely different, and as wombat mentioned, visually engaging as you got to watch the hosts doing slightly absurd things to play the game. Now not only is the inclusion of a tablet less visually engaging, but the newness and the novelty of it will have worn off quite a bit. I will be quite surprised if the Wii U gets even a fraction of the mainstream press that the Wii did.
In regards to kinect calling out ammo selection in ME3, I just find it quite amusing because it reminds me of one of features of Judge Dredd's handgun.
