This is never surprising from Nintendo. While the other two companies try to push the limit some on their consoles, Nintendo always takes a conservative approach. Unlike the other systems at launch Nintendo makes their systems so that they gain money for every system sold. They don't follow the policy of you sell your console at a loss to gain in the game sales. Nintendo tries to squeeze money out of both the console and game sales.

Plus this is Nintendo they know their target audience isn't the FPS gamers or the intense RPG players. They focus on what is an eternal money maker, and that boys and girls is children and preteens. As long as children are born Nintendo will have their money.

I know they're no slouch, but you have to admit Nintendo's history with consoles has never been to be the top in hardware specs.

Plus I'm not sold on the whole tablet in your controller idea yet. They've tried a similar idea before with Wind Waker, where you could plug you GBA into the system as a secondary screen to help.

The Wii was the first time that Nintendo wasn't pushing the edge in terms of specs, as every other gen they were competitive with those at the top. Still don't understand why they haven't released the specs for this console if it's supposed to be launching in the next couple months (I'm assuming we'll now get price and specs at TGS).

      Capcom confirms upcoming horror-action game not targeted at Nintendo's new console.

      Capcom has no immediate plans to bring Resident Evil 6 to Nintendo's Wii U, the publisher confirmed to IGN recently.
      "Unfortunately, [Resident Evil 6] will not be available at this time on the Wii U," producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi said. "Right now we're concentrating on the PlayStation 3 version, 360 version, and the PC version of the game."
      Resident Evil 6 will deploy on October 2, more than a month ahead of its original November 20 release date. The Wii U does not yet have a release date, but Nintendo previously confirmed the new system will be out worldwide this holiday season.

      Forget The Box is reporting publisher's upcoming console carries manufacturing costs of around $180;



      Wii U's retail price "will be no less" than $300 at launch.

      A new report claims Nintendo's upcoming Wii U console could retail for around $300 at launch.
      Citing "sources closely involved with manufacturing and distributing Nintendo products", Forget The Box reports the total cost of materials required to manufacture the Wii U console, including the Wii U controller, is estimated to be around $180, with materials and components costing Nintendo an additional $50.
      Based on these estimates, the report claims Nintendo is likely to finalize the cost of the Wii U to be no less than $300 at retail when it launches before the end of the year.
      "Cutting production costs to maximize profits is Nintendo?s main concern with the Wii U," the source told Forget The Box."
      "They are cutting costs in the Wii U's hardware to build back confidence in investors. Nintendo wants investors to view Wii U as a less risky proposition."
      At the time of the Wii U's unveiling at last year's Electronic Entertainment Expo, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata indicated the new console will probably cost more than ?20,000 ($250.47).
      By comparison, the Wii began its life cycle selling for $250.
      Earlier this month, it was reported the Wii U could be set for a November 18 global release date.
