Nintendo announce the Wii U - with a tablet controller
We’ve just dashed back from the E3 bash over in wherever the hell it is, armed with this piece of video that we shot ourselves while we were there, earlier this evening. Honest.
It’s the Nintendo announcement of the follow-up to the Wii, and they’ll be calling it the Wii U. Nice stuff. The major difference that we can see is that the controller is more like a tablet, with a built-in screen that will allow you to play your games on the tablet itself if you aren’t near a TV, making it a hand-held console in itself. Again, nice stuff.
The screen on the controller will also be incorporated into gameplay and you’ll also be able to use it for web browsing and video chat. Super nice. Check it out puppies...
