    exactly. you really gotta NITPICK to find the differences between consoles.

    Ooo this game on the PS3 has runs at smoother FPS, XBox 360 version of a game has less screen tearing, etc.

    Give me a break.

    Bitta Wii U news for ya:

    Pikmin And Mario For Wii U To Be Shown At E3 2012

    In an interview with El Mundo, a Spanish Newspaper, Miyamoto has confirmed that a new Super Mario Bros. title will be shown for the Wii U at this year's E3. The game is expected to be based off the New Super Mario Bros. Mii demo that was shown at last year's E3. Further into the interview, Miyamoto has said that he is also focusing work on the next Pikmin title, which will also be shown at E3.


    Nintendo has confirmed the info with the following statements below:


    "In a recent interview, Mr. Miyamoto confirmed that a new Super Mario Bros. game for the Wii U system will be shown at this year's E3 Expo. This is based on the Mario experience that was demonstrated at last year's E3 Expo. We'll have more to announce about our plans for the E3 Expo at a later date."

    "In a recent interview, Mr. Miyamoto confirmed that a new Pikmin game will be shown at the E3 Expo in June. He believes that anyone who has played Pikmin games in the past will enjoy playing."

    So fans can look forward to some long awaited info on the next Pikmin title, as well as the next Mario title that will debut on Wii U. No further info shared on whether these titles can be expected to be available at Wii U's launch.

    You people... Grrr.... :)

    Well we got Super Mario Galaxy 2 so Mario 128, as in a direct sequel to Mario 64, not the tech demo, really isn't missing. Anything that game would have done SMG2 does a million times better.

    Yeah, dudes make up their own games based on misunderstanding rumor and speculation then get all pished when the game the internets invented doesn't come out.

    If they bring Wii U to market with Pikmin 3 and New Super Mario Bros 2 I'll be in line to buy one at launch. Not that New Zealand is a big gaming country, nobody lines up for anything here.

    Bunch of games that are tech demos for the tablet... Not so much.

    I don't think Nintendo are the type to over promise and under deliver really. Although I'm still waiting on that pulse monitor they showed a couple of E3s back. :) What was it, the Vitality Sensor. :)

    Seeing them use the Mario 128 labeling made everyone think a true sequel to Mario 64 was coming to the GC. instead we got a niche mario game (sunshine) and then finally on a completely new system the true follow up (Galaxy).

    To me, it was a bait and switch. I think the GC was a great system and the fact people are still playing GC games over Xbox 1 games shows how great the system was. But it really needed a traditional mario game.

    so, you agree that nintendo releases a lot of tech demos then heh heh.

    Just saying that i am jaded (and openly admitting that) towards the big n but what they do put out is always incredible.
    I just as an adult have time for only so many games, and consoles, so I would like to see an all around nintendo system that can do what the others do, PLUS the amazing first party games.

    with a real mario game that fit into the canon, who knows how many more systems that would have moved.
    or a true sequel to yoshis island, etc etc.

    what if, right?

    I never understood what the hell people thought Mario 128 was going to be. Did folks really want to play a game about picking up boxes and revealing more Marios?

    I just saw how the Wii U is supposed to look today - it reminds me of a Laserdisc / VHS combo unit with a PSP for controller.

    These types of things DO matter. But are largely unoticable by a lot of people

    Many Dual platform games these days do have a ton of issues and differences. It just doesn't seem as dramatic as old days. And there COULD be bigger differences that more would notice but publishers/devs and the console makers want "parity" between platforms instead of upgrading and building each version to the best of each console's abilities.

    I don't think anyone thought the demo represented actual gameplay just technology that would be present in a Mario 128 game. I think using the 128 title especially after Mario 64 was pretty misleading.

    Laserdisc/VHS combo unit? I don't think such a thing ever existed. Anyway, it looks pretty similar to the Wii, to me.

    What? I don't know what pictures you've been looking at, but the ones I've seen look nothing like that.

    This is what it looks like:



    Pretty much like a Wii but with more rounded edges.

    I also think it's a bit of a mistake to make it look very similar to the Wii, because that will give people the impression that it's just a slightly different version of the Wii, when it's actually a completely new system. I think a lot of people think that about the 3DS - that it's just a new revision of the DS, rather than a completely new system (which it is).

    The design probably comes from the marketing people. If they sold so many units when it looked one way, why take the chance on a brand new design? At least thats what the suits are saying, I agree it looks boring...

    Whatever you think of sony, they've taken chances design wise. The PS 1 was a slick looking system but when they released ps 2, it looked like something that would sit next to a VCR. I guess they were thinking of the japanese market needing a dvd player so making it look like a standard dvd player worked but still a risky design.

    I don't really have any interest in the WiiU. I've got too much love for a traditional controller. The fact that I have to use the Wiimote to select the channel to play GameCube games upsets me.
