Not bad. =)

- game demos
Hopefully for all games, retail and download.

- check Miiverse comments related to the game
I wonder if Nintendo will promote select glowing testimonials or if it will be more random. I'm hoping for comments from friends/friends-of-friends

- downloadable content can be purchased in the store while software is running
Good news for Skylanders and such. Can't wait for Smash Bros!

I hope we have a lot of game demos, and not only one every few weeks.

Look at 3DS, 1 demo every month! LOL XD

At that rate Wii U better improve!

Same here, I'm hoping it's like the demos on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Anyway, it's good to hear you can get DLC while software is running, but I wonder if downloading and playing a game can work side by side. I ask this because my Xbox 360 doesn't let me do both at the same time. Downloading a demo and then suddenly decide to play some Bad Company 2 to pass the time? Nope, download instantly pauses the moment the game starts up. Rather annoying.

"- HD videos"

YES YES (I'm not surprised but I've been waiting for this for a long long time) Sayonara nasty Nintendo Channel videos. (Let's just hope the streams are reliable) :)

@StudMuffin

Considering not ALL games on PS3 or 360 have demos, I doubt it will be the case on Wii U either.

@MoldyClay This.

I can recall wanting to try X title on 360 and there not being a demo to try.

U eShop sounds glorious [as I'd hoped] - and we have a big ol' batch of Indie games from the offset too! :D

@zyxion1 That Panorama feature from E3 is, presumably, a system app. Could be part of a wider Photo Channel?

Don't know about a dedicated Music space, maybe they'll be an eStore app for it?

@MoldyClay I don't think so. The 3ds eshop has been pretty generous lately, I would expect the same kind of surprises on Wii U.

Things sound good to me. I just can't wait to use it.
