Okay Nintendo, pandering to the hardcore fans much? Zelda and an orchestra. Geez.

This is pretty lame so far. Sigh...

And here's the big announcement: the Wii U. That controller looks pretty spiffy, definitely something that casual gamers can grasp. Now they just need to back it up with good games to get the hardcore/serious gamers on board.

I use Wii as my main gaming devise. I have mostly played COD using the Wii Zapper, but at one point I tried using the Wii Classic Controller. That lasted for about 2 rounds. The design is not ergonomic and there are not enough trigger buttons.
The Wii U is a spiffy controller, but it doesn't not seem to answer any of the issues the Wii Classic Controller has. You can't expect to get hardcore/serious gamers with another gimmick controller.

How much do you guys think it will cost and how much power will be in it? The controller itself can't be cheap.
