I like this. Nintendo needs some good third parties like Valve to make the Wii U more appealing to more people.

I think Gabe has become emotionally attached to it as the controller weighs more than him.

Yeah because the original Wii has been such a total flop without Valve.

It wasn't exactly amazing in terms of software sales. If Nintendo had been making a loss on the console sale it would have been disastrous for them since most Wii owners only played Wii Sports which was bundled with the system.

There really is no guarantee that lightening will strike twice either. I really have my doubts about the Wii U.

Not saying it was. There is just a large audience that the Wii never fully appealed to. If Nintendo can get them on board it will just be the North Koreans left to sell them to.

Girls like the wii, and girls like Portal and l4d. So for Valves future games it could certainly be a success.

It does seem that nintendo want to aim back at the more "hardcore" gamers market, rather than the casual/family market of the Wii, so I would imagine that getting valve on board would be a big boon for them

Uh, when did they EVER aim at "hardcore" gamers? No amount of Valve can shake off Nintendo's casual rep at this point, not after something like the Wii.

Though Portal on console definitely makes sense.

I'm glad to see there is potential for Nintendo to broaden its appeal. I look forward to the day when I can fully replace my pc with a console as my main entertainment centre. PS3 was moving in that direction with otherOS and then they f'ed it up.

Nintendo's first-party software doesn't do it's reputation any favours. The third-party stuff is a different story. Which console can you get Madworld and Manhunt 2 on? Getting more third-party games without the family-friendly direction can only be a good thing, as long as we don't just get the cookie-cutter Gears/CoD style FPS ports that seem to be the only qualfier the Xbox and PS3 have as "consoles for grown-ups".

Thank you for contributing to the decline of PC gaming.

Lazarus Dark has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
My concern is that, while having higher specs allows third parties to seriously consider porting more games to the Wii U, I'm afraid very, very few third party games will take advantage of the second screen. Sure, all the first party games will use it extensively, but if they are going to port, say Gears of War 3 or something to Wii U, they are not likely to use the second screen in any meaningful way. Which is why I still think they need a traditional controller, there are just too many games that only play right with a traditional controller. The Umote is cool and I'm interested to see what more creative developers can do with it (though to be honest, if you can't use two Umotes, I think that is a failure), but like the Wiimote, some games just don't need that type of control scheme shoehorned in. Take Zelda: Twilight Princess (one of the two main first party titles!): I really would have preferred to just use a regular controller for that; swinging the wiimote was clunky and imprecise and added nothing to the game after the first ooh-ahh moment.

It's funny, because I really, really like the "classic controller pro" for the wiimote, its one of the most comfortable controllers I've ever used, but its always freaking tethered to the wiimote! If it just worked on its own and worked with all Wii games instead of just Virtual Console, I would be a happy camper.
