Nintendo Announces New Wii U Console at E3

Good news for Nintendo fans - the company has revealed a new Wii U console that boasts of HD gaming to match the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. The new console will also have a touchscreen based controller, which looks rather like a large tablet with a 6.2-inch screen and the usual buttons that one finds on a game controller. What's more, it seems that you can play games on the controller itself, without the TV, with the game content streamed wirelessly to the controller.

Engadget - Coming in 2012, Nintendo's next home console will deliver "deeper game experiences" that aim to offer "something for everyone." And it'll be called the Wii U! A variety of new controls will be made available by that crazy new controller with a 6.2-inch touchscreen embedded in it. Most importantly, you'll no longer be tied to a TV to enjoy your home consoling action -- the Wii U controller can handle your gaming session when the television is needed for other purposes, while a built-in front-facing cam will let you video chat from anywhere too.
