MS is already talking to publishers about these available 10% power and how to utilize them, they've noticed.
Good to know. I'm curious to see where it will lead for them.

Now we just need Nintendo to follow suit and release a $199 Wii U without the tablet controller.
Nintendo can't do that because it would break every single game that has tablet-specific features.

Besides, that wouldn't help move a lot more Wii Us.
Yeah, not to mention that doing so would bring them right back to square one. They'd likely have to abandon the hardcore gamers and focus on the casual users which were a big part of the success of the original Wii. The problem being, those users don't see a reason to upgrade from a Wii to a Wii U, and would need a compelling reason for doing so and Nintendo would have to do a far better job at marketing it than it did the first time around. It's a bit late in the game to be doing that though and would likely cost too much to try to rebuild momentum.
