In b4 Apple pulls lawsuits.

But yeah, as Kevin himself said, it's really more expanding their current App Store. Why they even kept it this way so long is a mystery. It's only justified "homebrew" apps to enable functions like DVD/video playing and better web browsing which in turn opened the piracy homebrew. Not being more versatile with apps will push business to Sony and their Android like experience.

i hope there is an options where you can buy the Wii U at a reduce price with standard controllers without having a big goofy looking tablet like controller as your only option.

The new Wii U games are developed to use the new tablet as the controller so I'm assuming it will be required for use.

This will be the trend until you can not go to your local brick and motor store to buy software for anything. Saves them lots of money and gives them more control, a win win for the company, a big consumer lose.
Then will come the dumb terminal computers and cloud storage (with FED/Spook approval) so they will control even more.

obviously it must be an apple like store knock off because the idea of a convenient place to buy a product a company wants to sell is exclusively an idea of Apple top brass

let's see according to wiki "The App Store opened on July 10, 2008."
Wii came out in 2001 and it has the Wii Shop Channel. "The channel launched with Wii on November 19, 2006."

Damn, it's so obvious that Nintendo copied the idea of an App Store from Apple...I mean look at the dates! Wii also has square icons with rounded corners another blatant copy! /sarcasm
