For my part, it wouldn't make a difference since I only play games with controllers and mouse + keyboard, I'm not a fan of touch screen controls, not even for interface use and browsing files, web etc. For me, it doesn't matter.
OK, but the reason I asked is because a screen without touch capabilities means that it is definitely not an advanced Wii U OR tablet in concept, and that it is built with traditional gaming in mind. You indicated that's why you're not sold on the idea, albeit you may have meant in terms of its success on the market instead of for yourself.
I'm talking more about the market, yes. Personally, I will consider it, depending on the price, we know there are some amazing games coming for it. I'll only be using it as a home console though. It's been so long since I owned a Nintendo console, it's way overdue.
