I heard $350...what about internal storage? Transferring of data from the Wii? If it comes out holiday 2012 what's going to make it sell well? I would think if there was a solid 1st party Nintendo game as a pack in

I'll probably bite on day one at $299 assuming VC stuff carries over and we get a slew of new titles. I'd also like to play slightly prettier versions of some of my 360/PS3 favorites. GOTY versions of Skyrim, Batman AC, maybe some sort of Fallout 3/NV bundle, etc. would all be welcome.

We'll see. E3 shall be interesting this year.


I doubt they would. Unless something has changed in the past year, I couldn't even transfer from wii to wii when I bought a new red one.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

They allowed it from DSi to 3DS but not from DSi to DSi. I have to believe that they'll allow the transfer. Perhaps they'll push out a firmware update to the Wii to force everyone to create an account and actually tie your purchased content to a user account instead of a console?

The DSi -----> 3DS thing is what gives me hope for a Wii ----> Wii U transfer. If I can't, I won't bother with the Wii U for a long time. I'm not done with my VC games and I don't really want to hook another system up to my TV without taking one away.

Agreed. If they don't allow the transfer, the only way I'll buy a Wii U is if the rumors are true that the PS4 and Xbox 3 don't allow used game sales. If that's the case the the Wii U will be my ONLY next gen console for many years until all games in stores are very cheap.

I've been telling people for weeks this IS going to happen. Yet no one believes me.

I believe you man! The idea that they would force everyone to create a user account and tie content to that like on PSN/XBL was a bit of a pipe dream on my part though.

If the Wii U comes out at $350, then I'm definitely not buying it. $299 seems like a much easier to swallow price point.

You think it'll happen right of the bat though (like day one)? Or something that will come along later, like the online shop for the 3DS?

The U Shop is going to be there on Day 1. That is what I was told. Same goes for the transfer channel (I'm going to guess it's a Channel), but I imagine that'll come out a little bit before-hand. I was told that Virtual Console games, Wii Ware games, Channels and Locked Saves (Brawl, MKW, MH3, etc.) would transfer as well.

Channels will transfer meaning Wii U will have channels too? I hope so

KingBroly in the other thread was suggesting that the Wii stuff could be running as a virtual machine on the WiiU, so it could be the only channels are on the Wii side of things.

Pretty much. I don't know how or what the Wii U OS will specifically entail (besides the obvious 'loading screen to get into the store' will be there). It could be a modified version of what the Wii has (I.E. like the 3DS OS) or something entirely different. However, given Nintendo's OS's are always 100% functionality I doubt it.

EDIT: Forgot one thing

Adding friends and such will be server side like Xbox 360/PS3 and not client side like 3DS/Wii.

We're debating about the price but if this is region locked, no thanks. Don't insult me by trying to force me to buy games you think I want.

If it helps, don't think of it as region locking. Think of it as immigrant proofing. Those out-of-region titles steal sales from hard working North American titles.
