How does it have zero battery life? My controller lasts up to four hours

You just answered your question. I can easily play Super Smash Bros Brawl for 12 hours at a time. Yeah that sounds a little extreme but when you work all the time then you play games on your days off and if you only have 1 day your going to play most of the day.

The PS4 and PSVita are at least compatible with each other and make the gaming experience sweet. The Vita will be much more epic with a ps4.

I would think that because of the controller's design 4 hours would be expected. I don't know anyone who could play 12 hours straight, so I guess that sounds a little extreme to me. I understand though.

Did you mean most compatible?

I guess you just don't know hard core gamers then. And maybe 12 hours is a little much but im usually either leaving my console on while I get something to eat or do something and just come back to it later in a half an hour or so.

Meant at least more my bad

I can see where you'd have a problem then.

Yeah so I do take breaks but I just leave the console on and with the Xbox you can turn off the controller. I guess if the Wii U has some sort of charging cable then it wouldn't be a problem

The stupid control scheme is not even close to revolutionary (oh geez, a touchscreen, never seen that) and flawed at its very core - why the hell would I look away from my god**** game. There's literally no utility a pause menu couldn't have given me. The only thing it's going to be any good for is making it even more hellish for Nintendo to find third party support, because we've learned from the Wii that developers largely won't give enough of a crap to implement the gimmick to its "fullest potential" or, worse yet, won't port games at all.
The controller itself is a cumbersome, poorly designed piece of hardware with zero battery life.

The marketing was done poorly and half the consumers don't even know it's a standalone machine, and in two years it will be a barren ****ing wasteland, only sparsely revisited for a short while whenever Nintendo releases one of their big IPs' next installment, and then abandoned promptly right after.

Dude, first of all, I love the gamepad.  Is the PS4 or Xbox1 gonna have a revolutionary idea for controller?  No, and I use the pro-controller if I want a classic controller.  If anything, Nintendo has more variety in controlling.  If you wanna use the wii remote, you can even use that. It's light, convenient (I always use it when someone else wants to watch TV) and comfortable.  Just because you don't prefer Nintendo, don't hate on it cuz ur too cheap to buy it.  And it's not like the PS4 or Xbox1's libraries are bigger.  Xbox 360 and Ps3 have been around 7 years, so yeah they have some titles built up.  Give it some time.  Not many people have bought it yet, but i know that more and more are.  3 of my friends just bought it, and I have it.  Also, some people like the games it has.  I have COD Black Ops 2, and I play it, but i prefer playing the 1st party games, because those are what I was raised on.  As Salvidian said, it's loyalty.  I love Nintendo, and its first party games.  I mean, aside from spyro, what first party games did little PlayStation kids grow up on?

Aside from Spyro? There's the Jak and Daxter series, and before that Crash Bandicoot. The only home consoles of the Kingdom Hearts series are Playstations. There's always Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. Then there's also Ratchet and Clank that are PS exclusive. The PS2 was an exclusive powerhouse.

And it's not like the PS4 or Xbox1's libraries are bigger. 

Those consoles have not even been released yet and they already have 3rd party games dated for release which the Wii U won't.

360 for the win.
Lets face the facts, Nintendo is dying out. The Wii was really their last chance to have something successful. And for a while, it was. It was pretty cool, having motion technology and all. But then Sony came out with the Playstation Move, and Microsoft came out with the Kinect.
And yes, I do like Playstation, but I think Xbox really is making more of an impact, with its amazing graphics and game play. Not to say the PS3 doesn't have the same thing, not to mention free online play, but I just feel like it isn't really as pronounced
