What we need in redesign:
1. Quietter consoles.
2. Bigger harddrive.
3. WiiU without gamepad just a WiiU Controller Pro.
4. WiiU without the power brick.
5. Blu-ray video support. Not sure if this is possible and still run the WiiU optical disc.
6. Increase Ram and processor, Not for games performance but faster loading menu and load times.
7. Cost need to be under $250.00.
8. Color, I loved my Platinum colored Gamecube.
Platinum color WiiU for $250 featuring wisper quiet console with faster loadings time, 250 GB HD and WiiU controller Pro (gamepad sold separately).
The Wii U is already the quietest console. It's crazy quiet.
I'm not sure why so many are pushing the hard drive thing so much. It's far cheaper to buy your own external USB HD and get a lot more in return. If anything they should maybe just offer a bundle with an external USB HD. That would be the cheapest solution because there would be less manufacturing costs.
The Gamepad in an integral part of the Wii U, it's not going anywhere. The system it'self and many games cannot function without it.
Every system has a power brick, some are inside some are outside...
Blu-ray? Why? A blu-ray costs about $50, it's unnecessary. Let it do what it is good at, playing games.
I'm guessing you haven't used a Wii U recently. Just with the system updates, the OS has become quite sleek, quick and responsive. Loading times aren't much of an issue as they used to be. It likely won't change much with games because the ones with long load times are unoptimized. The newer games that are optimized have very little load times for the most part. When the processors and eDRAM are being utilized the system is quite sufficient. The whole power game between the consoles is starting to fade as the X1 is catching up and games are starting to sell systems more than "power" and hype.
The cost is under $250 right now, you can get the system for around $300 with two games depending on the bundle.
I wouldn't be surprised if we see a few extra colours of Wii U's but it probably won't be till most of the ones out are sold now.
I'm sorry, but much of what you think would make it better really won't. The only thing that MIGHT is the CPU and RAM, but thirds still probably won't support it... just because.
