What I still haven't figured out is how this is supposed to bring more people to gaming - doesn't it seem like a two-screen gaming system would be confusing for a new gamer? Which screen should I look at? OK, now I can play games with the TV off, but how do I do that? Don't get me wrong, I'm pretty excited to see the Wii U, but I don't really see this bringing more people into the gaming fold that weren't there already.
So if you can afford Nintendos stock now or shortly will be the time to buy it. I have no doubt that Nintendo will be successful with this console especially with the doubts people had about the original Wii.

Pretty simple actually.
Screen 1 = Game.
Screen 2 = Screen that holds the stuff you're holding, map you're playing, etc.
Simple enough right?

Dont get me wrong, Nintendo could have something here...but i dont see it. Course some people said the same thing about the Wii. But it seems odd to focus so much on motion control and then go a totally different direction. I can only imagine how much these controllers will cost. In anycase more competition is a good thing, so i wish you the best nintendo, prove us and your investors wrong.
Simple enough right?
I guess you haven't played video games with my wife.
Seriously, though, I think it could get really confusing. The Wii U is compatible with all of my existing Wii controllers (remotes, nunchucks, classic controllers, balance board, gamecube pads?), plus the new tablet screen controller... does each game have a different control scheme? And can I use multiple tablet controllers?
What I'm saying is that there's still a lot of questions to be answered, even about the controllers.
Sounds like a buying opportunity to me.
I'm anxious to see the Wii U when it comes out. I'm not sure what to make of it yet, but I'll certainly be paying close attention when it's here and I can actually see it!
"A few of the things that influence the stock to slide was the fact that Nintendo made an announcement of a new console, which ultimately leads to the current Wii sales to slump. People were thinking of buying a Wii , will now likely hold on till the new version comes out in 2012, and current owners will be hitting Ebay towards selling theirs. Also, this will affect game sales as well in the domino effect. Nintendo can also be credited for the slide directly because of little details giving about the hardware and the no revelation about the media or disc type that will be used for games. It is reported, that the Nintendo Wi U will use 25GB optical disc, though , not Blu Ray, and it will not play Blu- Ray movies, saving cost in licensing.'
"It depends instead on whether or not Nintendo wines and dines software developers who currently build their titles around the Sony/Microsoft duopoly." well said Joel. Good point. I would definitely consider getting the Wii U if they offer titles that attract hardcore gamers to the Xbox and Playstation. If Nintendo could somehow do that... and keep releasing family oriented games, then I want me some Nintendo stock. :)
Never stop learning... until you're dead.
