Nintendo started talking seriously about the Wii U at E3 this week, and shared a big list of all the games confirmed so far for the new consoles. It's looking pretty impressive, considering there's still no word on when exactly the Wii U will launch. Come on, have a butcher's.
Nintendo's being very vague about how long the "launch window" is, whether it's weeks or months--so it seems games slated for the "holiday" window may well be arriving before those in the "launch" one. You can rely on the holiday season, barring an unforseen Santa Claus catastrophe.

They really should have shown game&wario, Project P-100 or Zombi U at the conference. The core needed some red meat and Nintendo gave them a wheat grass shot. This list looks a lot better.
Zombi U sounds great conceptually, I'm worried that as a launch game it's going to be super short. Hopefully there's some sort of online competition around who can surive the longest with a single survivor since they were playing that up.
Project P-100 is a little nebulous, I don't quite know what to think of it. But it's a Platinum games production so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.
I'm really worried that ME3 and Batman are going to be $60 dollars and EA and Warner will complain that they didn't sell at all and therefore will not be bringing core titles to the system. I'd actually like to see Batman come in at $40-50 and ME3 to be bundled in a Mass Effect Trilogy compilation but I know it's to going to happen.
No Black Ops 2 is disheartening, I'd really like to see a couple more titles announced when they reveal the price/date around September. Black ops 2 like I said and Epic Mickey 2 (Spector made some comments during the Spike TV live demo that there might be more platforms announced and Mark Lamia wouldn't answer one way or another if they were working on a BLOPS2 Wii U version back when they announced BLOPS2 a few weeks ago) would be huge wins for Nintendo to have at launch. But after this E3 showing, I'm not holding my breath on that stuff.
It's really odd that at every press conference that Nintendo had, they forgot to mention key games. Not mentioning P-100 on Tuesday was odd. Not mentioning Fire Emblem on Wednesday was even stranger. What's going on at NOA's marketing department?
They did show Zombi U? And so did Ubisoft?
I saw some ZombieU footage on the floor, but the bits at the conferences looked sorta prerendered
