Nintendo just announced the successor to the Wii at the annual U.S. video game confab, E3 on Tuesday.
Here’s what we know so far:
The new console is the first Nintendo device to support HD graphics. Its controller features a 6.2-inch touch-screen that works as a second display showing the same images being played on TV. The screen can also provide gamers with additional information to give them an edge over competitors. It can run old Nintendo games, has motion-sensor capabilities and can be used in conjunction with Wii controllers, the company said. Additional hands not included!
plays 10 adp full HD graphics, can connect to HDMI
will play proprietary high density discs and downloaded content
hits stores between April 1 2012 and December 2012
no HD video on touchscreen, but the new console will deliver HD video on TV screens
More to come…
Here’s some guy making a fool of himself playing the Wii U, next to another guy shaking for no discernible reason.
