The DS line up had a different sound to the 3DS. I'm just saying they should come up with a new one to the Wii U as well, so when they hear any future advert they think "Wii U" instead "Wii".

Wonder if he'll feature it in a future episode of Bug?

Whilst it isn't the most exciting advert ever, it covers the important bases. Especially for people who may not have seen anything about the console before. I'm sure there was somebody who switched their console off so that the other half could watch Homeland, and thought the bit where it plays on the gamepad was great.

Was anyone else expecting him to say something funny? I was waiting for the sarcastic comment.

@MJTH - the sound is the Nintendo sound rather than just Wii, it's used on their DS/3DS ads as well.

They should of changed the ad start up sound at least. When I think of original wii ads that sound is what I think of.
