360 Friday Night Fights: So How Bout That Wii U, Eh?

Look, I know this is the "360" Friday Night Fights blog but it seems like Nintendo won the day yesterday (or did they?) when they finally announced the launch date, price and line-up of games for their new Wii U system.

Based on the comments I read yesterday, there seems to be a very clear divide. One side seems to love what Nintendo is doing and can't wait to get their hands on their new system, the other side doesn't see what the big deal is and can't understand why people are so elated with yesterday's news.

What say you, faithful FNF readers? Are you excited to have a new system to play with before Sony and Microsoft show their new duds or are you going to wait to see what's around the corner?

I guess either way it's going to be a very interesting year for not only Nintendo but for all of us gamers as well.

New to Friday Night Fights? It's easy to get involved!

Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It's a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!

The planning for FNF starts in the forums, where community members volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up here in the cblogs followed by a recap post on the front page on the front page for last-minute planning.

To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! (Don't forget to say you're from Dtoid!) If you'd rather host something yourself, just post your details below in the following format:

Game: Game Name
Host: Dtoid Username
Gamertag: Xbox Live Gamertag
Time: Time (Eastern please!)

We hope to see you online!

Here's this week's schedule...

Battlefield 3

Host: TheOne3Man Gamertag: TheOne3Man
Time: 8 Pacific | 11 Eastern
(If you don't see TheOne3Man on you can also look for Chillybill, OMGhotdogs or CommunistFlisk, one of us will be playing for sure)


Host: Epic KxLive Gamertag: Epic KxLive
Time: 9 Pacific | 12:00 AM Eastern

Halo Reach

Host: Gatsby Gamertag: Glorious Gatz
