I always thought of it more as dark gray than black. However, at the time it was a different color than the PS1 and the Dreamcast.

And yes Zenith most do have the black one. It was the original color.
yeah I said that specifically to spook him a bit. Cause those of us that do have it know better.
the only way it would be gray is if it had been collecting dust. or light version of it. ok in a certain lighting it can look a bit gray, but it was made black. it's all in the light of the environment.

Black, dark grey, black, dark grey....whatever, same difference. I think the important point is that its not white which is where he was originally going with it

lol It's like choosing a Colour for your house wall 's or something to that effect, you want blue . But then you find out there's 500 versions of blue. Sky blue , Aqua blue Royal blue gun metal blue&black and a whole bunch you ain't ever heard of , or thought about name wise. It's still the same deal it's in the area of that said colour, Blue. Same deal here.

I just hate it when select models are specific colors. If you want a Deluxe WU, and you want a white WU...better buy both models and switch the cases.../sarcasm

I do too, mainly because they're more prone to get more dirty, dust is also more noticeable on it too.

Reverse racism?

Wouldn't that mean you love every race? Opposite of racism?

Please foreget what he just said. He meant it to be funny but it failed on you. Just leave it alone.

My comedy stylings are too high brow for this crowd.


On topic, I did go to Gamestop today and had a chance to play the Rayman demo. The tablet is insanely comfortable and doesn't feel clunky or awkward at all. It will definitely be the one to beat come Christmas.

I can't wait to go to Best Buy or GameStop (still will never buy a game from them) to play a demo.

On another note, there's a rumor circulating that Wii U will not have universal voice chat, and it will be up to the developers to implement this feature. This rumor came from a Nintendo rep at a show I believe, so take it with a grain of salt.

Either way, isn't this how voice chat works on PS3?

More or less...No one seems to get voice chat like Mircrosoft, lol. Which, if the VC is only as good as the PS3's I'll use XBL Party Chat anyway...

To be fair, with M$ it's a service that you're paying for, so I can see Sony (although I don't think PS+ subscribers can do cross chat, which is ridiculous if you ask me) and Nintendo's approach.

I have heard a rumor that Nintendo's focus will be more on Video Chat, to utilize the GamePad's mic and camera, so that interaction is on a more personal level while playing a game.

The next Nintendo Direct is a week away, so hopefully, Nintendo can respond to this and actually clear up the air.

Right, it is the service... Which is why I don't mind paying. I'd probably pay Nintendo if they did the same.

I'll be interested in game pad video/voice chat.

I'm quite the opposite.

Same.

Nintendo has less than a month to cover a lot of things before launch.

In other news, the first UK Wii U ad:
VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


I think it does it's job for people that don't know much about the console, and shows off it's capabilities well. Although for someone like me, who knows a lot about the console, I want something better.

EA privacy policy mentions 'Nintendo Network ID,' Origin on Wii U

(1 hour ago)
16

The latest version of Origin's privacy policy may have just given the world its first fleeting glimpse into the online architecture of Nintendo's rapidly approaching Wii U, or at least the naming conventions used by said architecture.

"By signing up to play EA's titles," the policy reads, "you agree that limited user account information can be transferred to EA. Information transferred to EA includes your Mii information, email address, Nintendo Network ID, friend list, country, language and date of birth."

Not only does this confirm that Origin will be an integral part of playing EA games on Wii U, presumably in a similar fashion to its integration on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but also that Nintendo's friend codes of yore are being supplemented/replaced by something called a Nintendo Network ID. We've reached out to Nintendo for comment and will update as soon as we know more.

I was already expecting this with they way they do it on PS3 and XB360. It's dumb.

Yeah...EA makes me hate them more and more as time goes by. EA is also very bitter at Nintendo right now.

There was a rumor floating around that the Nintendo Network was going to be run by EA through Origin, and once Nintendo put their foot down that it wouldn't be happening, EA threw a tantrum.
