I was trying not to mention the earthquake that hit Japan, but I can't it cannot be avoided.Sadly we will probably have to wait a long time for hardware tessellation support to come to the consoles. I doubt even the WiiU will use such technology or Nentindo would have plastered the face of fans with it in their conference.
Japan has good gaming currently? I thought they were suffering daily blackouts due to damage sustained to the electrical grid from a natural disaster... Infact, that is likly the main reason the WiiU appears so rushed, because it probably is many months behind schedual. Addionally most Japenese game developers did announce delays to their current projects. The end result will be fewer games being relesed (as you can not start a new project until your current one is complete) for the forseeable future.
Although I do admit Japeneese game companies generally have the best out of box quality (MMORPGs aside where you always add content later) they still seem way behind in their patching (remakes of remakes of japeneese games still have some bugs/faults from the orignal) and they also seem to have very little ability to portray different cultures. Castlevania is a good example whereby a lot of Japenese culture is mixed into a game that is mostly meant to take place in Europe.

The amount of games that are not good in the Japanese market is similar to what the US market has. That's what research is for. In the case of games being delayed, I'd rather have a game that was delayed to be made better and costing me $50 than a game that was released flawed and paying $50. You're making people impatient in the first scenario, but in the second you're just flat-out flicking them off.
This video sums up the video game industry today pretty well. At least, this is how all markets are when the profit motive detracts form the purpose. The original purpose of video games was to entertain people and we get and got the games we love due to that, but now... Hah. Not so much.
Wait until you see the Wii U one. They promise it will be full HD, and to help with that they are keeping visuals similar to Brawl except with higher resolution textures and more detailed models.but i tested sometimes smash brawl in a wii and was the best ah such graphics...
