While I can agree with Wombat's opinion on the Wii-U, don't forget you guys also said the Kinect would never sell. It's a valid claim to make that the Wii-U probably won't sell as well as the Wii, it doesn't mean it won't sell well period.
I was a big fan of Heavy Rain but I can understand the public's apprehension about paying $60 for what was essentially a point-and-click adventure game like Walking Dead. Maybe as an episodic download HR would have worked better?
Wombat, your "what are your reading?" question to Shipwreck made up for anything offensive you might have said.
