Well, I’m excited overall. While nothing insane was shown off, I feel like the price is right and offerings are excellent.

I am definitely excited for NintendoTVii, it takes all of the streaming services and compiles them into one program, with a few interesting features.

Even thought about 20 minutes was spent on games, I feel like they were lacking. NintendoLand is a great successor to WiiSports, but I don’t think we need to keep seeing it at shows. Activision has some cool announcements, but nothing that get me jumping out of my seat. And Bayonetta2 is great and all, but I don’t see anyone buying a WiiU just to play this game. . .

Still, I’m sold. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go preorder my WiiU Deluxe!

Wow great addition for sports fans. Watch the game on the TV while checking out player stats and statistics via the game controller.

Same thing with sports, bu the GamePad shows stats from other games on the left, and moments from the game being watched on the right.
