weak, all the hype was for nothing this does not deliver nothing more than the ps3 and xbox 360,this is slightly better Wii with little improved graphics to get close to the 360 and ps3.

waste of money i bet the controller is much more expensive then the console it self lol.

My thoughts exactly. But with a much larger screen. Also kinda like that cable thing that you could use to connect a GameBoy Advance to a GameCube and get special features in some games like Zelda.
