Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Heading to Nintendo's Wii U Launch Event

I was able to snag a press pass to Nintendo's Wii U presentation through the website I write for which I'm natrually very excited about.  Naturally, I'll be covering the big news such as price point, release date, and all that, and I'll have a chance to go hands on with the machine.

I don't know what exactly Nintendo will show off, but is there anything you'd like me to be on the lookout for?  Any burning questions that you'd like me to ask Nintendo reps for you?  Post what you want to know here, and I'll do my best to find out for you.

What site do you work for?


Confirm games, see what else is coming, see how accurate it is compared to the wii mote.

If hide or hair of Retro's game emerges, cover everything



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

Gotgame.com it's an upstart site that will hopefully grow much bigger :). My name is Justin Weinblatt if you want to keep an eye on my articles. I may try and livetweet the event but I just got twitter and have no idea how it works xD.

I'll definitely report on any new games announced, but i was thinking more in terms of the less obvious things. Any hardware quirks or details about games that have been announced and the sort of thing. Basically I'm trying to be on the lookout for little things, so maybe I'll have something interesting to say that won't be covered on ign and such.



I'd be curious to learn details of the other memory options: cloud storage, external HDDs, and how Nintendo will make that work.

With twitter you just text message what you are seeing and it is there. You should put gotgame.com in your sig.

Great, I wonder why Vgchartz doesn't send people to these type of events?



Congrats on your press pass.

I'm sure they'll announce if a game will be included, what the other games in Nintendoland are, etc. But there are two main things I'd like to know:


1. How long are we going to have to wait for Bioshock Infinite and, most importantly, will it feature Wii remote pointer control?

2. How much will a standalone WiiU Gamepad cost?

I'll do that.  I didn't know if there were any sort of restrictions regarding that sort of thing.  I'll definitely ask about standalone gamepads date/price if Nintendo isn't forthcoming with that info!



thanks, hope all our answers will be revealed
