So Nintendo just announced its new Wii console, the Wii U, which has all the bells and whistles we expected, like full HD video output and heftier specs for more technologically advanced games. It’s also compatible with previous games and controllers.
But the real twist is its new controller!
It looks like a simple console controller with a touchscreen, but it’s so much more…
You can actually play the games without a TV and it has motion sensors, augmented reality (apparently), video-chat, web browsing and all the goodies you came to expect from the likes of Nintendo DSi.
I love the way Nintendo always pushes the creativity envelope to come up with new approaches to old standards, and relevant products and features.
You just gotta hand it to them: they’re good!
I just question a couple of things: the hefty size of the controller (and weight), and how much money will it cost.
Check out the glamorous showcase of the Wii U’s main features. It will rock your socks off!
