Nintendo unveiled the exciting new Wii U just a few moments ago at today's E3 press briefing. Want to get a closer look? Click through the gallery!
We got a look at the new touchscreen controller for Nintendo's new Wii U system, and I finally caught a glimpse of the actual console during the post-media-brief programming. It looks very sleek with the rounded edges and possibly smaller than the current Wii console. What do you guys think of the Wii U?
The next Wii console is officially called the Wii U and comes with the predicted 6.2-inch touchscreen controller that we reported earlier this week. Designed to get the entire family in on the gaming action, or just yourself, the Wii U can be used with your TV or by itself as a handheld controller. Not only that, the controller can also be used in conjunction with the games you're playing on your set, as a video chatting device, or as an extension of the web. You can even wirelessly move video from your controller to your TV set with a swipe of your finger. Coming in 2012, learn about some other features you can look forward to with the Wii U below, and see more photos here!
- The Wii U can automatically switch from the TV set to the controller without the need for switching inputs.
- It comes with two circle pads, control pads, gyroscope, two speakers, microphone, touchscreen, a camera, and trigger buttons.
