Tomorrow, Nintendo is set to give us the final details (http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2012/09/nintendos-liveblog-the-wii-u-wait-is-over-on-thursday-september-13/) on what we can expect from the Wii U's launch later this year. Yesterday and today, Ars readers shared their thoughts (http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2012/09/will-the-wii-u-win-u-back-share-your-thoughts/) on what they want to hear from Nintendo, and what (if anything) could convince them to purchase the system, either at launch or after.
