It's been so long since the last home consoles came out that I can't say if this is unusual, but it strikes me that we really don't know that much about the Wii U considering it's supposed to come out in about 3 months. The stuff they showed at E3 felt limited, and there's still big features like the online functionality that they've been pretty mum about.
I guess it would be in their interest to hold out for a big press event in September or so to reignite people's interest and show off launch titles, so maybe that's it. I know Nintendo knows what they're doing, and the expected launch titles (Pikmin 3, NSMB, P-100, Nintendo Land, Wii Fit, Rayman Legends, etc.) seem pretty solid, but this thing just doesn't feel like it's a few months away. Maybe the issue is that I'm not interested in buying one at launch (I've got way too many games to play as it is), so I'm not seeking out information.
Anyone else find the silence kind of odd?
