Not paying $400 for that

I'm a chill and wait for the price to drop (as many years as it takes)

Last I checked, they didn't put out a price point yet...

Exactly and it's Nintendo, I'm sure people will be surprised at the price of the console, it's probably cheaper than you think.

I wasn't aware Nintendo was in a coffin. Struggling in some areas, sure, but I don't think anyone is writing up a eulogy.

If I recall correctly, they have enough money to continue making consoles that flop until I'm an old man...

Nintendo makes a decision that isn't universally agreed upon = Nintendo's dead.

if the Wii U doesnt sell 200 million units in 1 week it'll be deemed a complete failure, right?

Backwards compatibly with Wii games (not GameCube), PS3/Xbox360 level graphics...
I can use my Wii Balance board, and wii remoted w/ new system (plus all my Wii games)...

I'm going to probably buy at launch or shortly after as long as it's not too expensive.

Same situation about the originally Wii - No HD graphics, no DVD playback as example (yet in terms of sales, they won this console cycle)?
I'm not going to say there going to win the next console war, but nor will I say there dead in the water, only time and market will tell.

I've got a Wii, an Xbox 360 and a PS3 here. True, the Wii is the one I use less, but they all have good games. For me, Xbox and PS3 = hardcore games and Wii = casual gaming, but to be honest I'm pretty sure there's more casual gamer than harcore in this world :)

Also, Nintendo is the only company that made money from day one with their console, I'm not worried about their bank account!

They said that it will cost at least $250, possibly more as they don't intend on making a loss on each console sold like Microsoft/Sony did.

Wouldn't be surprised if it was $299 and the gamepad $100-125.
