Really don't see the appeal personally.
Essentially it seems as though it's almost the exact same system with a graphics upgrade plus the controller with the screen.
My question is, do you really need to upgrade the system in terms of power and graphics in order to play games like Mario/Zelda?
Not to mention the controller itself, other than looking incredibly uncomfortable, doesn't seen to provide anything of value except in the case of seeing an inventory in a game that requires it.
Did you guys see the pitching/fielding int he baseball game in one of the posted videos?
Looks incredibly gimmicky and would likely lose it's appeal after 5 minutes of play if it would have any appeal to begin with.
I find it incredibly hard to believe that Sony and Microsoft won't easily trump this new system.
I also wouldn't be surprised if most people would prefer the 360 and the PS3 over the Wii U even.
I'm sure it will sell well though for no other reason than people will think the controllers to be all high-techy.
