I didn't miss anything. Gotcha.

So lemme get this straight, Nintendo gets [parasitic bomb] on for not doing anything big at E3 when Sony & Microsoft pretty much told us everything except the price and HURRAY? Joy.
Yeah I don't get it either, at least the Wii U has games and shown games before the Wii U started to sell.

Whee, AI, Whee, Fancy Graphics.

This is just... magical, thank you Microsoft for making the PS4 Announcement look good compared to this.

Hey guys, you forgot to show the 13-year olds that play CoD.

I thought the PS4 conference was pretty good. It actually showed a decent amount of games, including that awesome looking Deep Down.

Yeah... this is just terrible.

You look at the people in front, nobody's clapping or anything.

Just the people in the back.

They're apparently Microsoft Employees.

Second-Screen Integration? So Wii U?

We just SAW the CoD Ghosts Premiere. Stop coming back to it.

Yeah, that's true, but it wasn't without its goofiness.

Oh, guess that was it.

[tornado fang] you Microsoft.

AND NO BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY TO BE HAD.

Can't wait till all the 360's in the world die out and nobody can ever play those games again.

Not to mention if you keep your Wii it'll essentially be your GameCube.

A PC makes a better Gamecube than a Gamecube or Wii (Most of the time at least).

As in emulation or modifying?

The old Wii at least; if I recall correctly, the slim model ditched GameCube support. :(

There's a slim model, I thought the Wii only had one model.

They look the same though, the Mini and the 2011 hardware revision are the ones that have no Gamecube support.

The Mini is Canada/Europe only I think.

The other one is basically the same but is missing the Gamecube ports.

Well I'm glad I got a Wii in 2006, although the default storage space is a pain in the ass. :\

I didn't realize they actually had different models. :\
I saw an article about it somewhere, which kinda surprised me they'd go anorexic with the Wii, but I forgot where it was.

The more recent Wii models actually retain the slots in the casing for the Gamecube controller/memory card ports, but there's nothing going TO those holes. So yeah, GCN support removed.

and the Wii Mini lacks those AND any internet capabilities whatsoever.

No backwards compatibility, and just to keep you from getting your hopes up, no used games either.

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/407912/microsoft-confirms-pre-owned-fee-for-xbox-one/

Basically, each game disc will be tied to an individual XBL account, and if someone buys it off you used, they have to pay a fee to get it to work.

Someone play me a dirge for Microsoft, will you?

Commander Shepard: *stares blankly at a video of scantily clad asari dancers* ...What kind of hotel is this?
Liara T'Soni: It is a luxury resort with an... exotic edge.  Azure is slang for a part of the asari body in some places on Illium.
Shepard: Where?
Liara: The lower reaches, near the bottom.
Shepard: I meant, "where on the asari body?"
Liara: So did I.

So they did it after all.

Congrats Microsoft, your dedication to screwing consumers over is going to kill your system.

Hell, this also kills Rentals AND Borrowing games from friends.
