Say hello to the Wii U. Yea… So maybe I was a bit premature in labeling the PS Vita as the worst product name ever. But that is neither here nor there. The fact of the matter is, that the over-the-top controller we had heard rumors of the past couple weeks has been confirmed.
The Wii U is full of some interesting features including switching the video from your television to the controller. The controller will also act as a secondary display so as to provide a new, unique experience. Whether or not it is a better experience will be seen when it is released in 2012. For more information on Nintendo’s new console, hit the break.
The console itself, in case you care…
- 1080p resolution
- 6.2 inch touchscreen on Wii U controller, running in non-HD resolution
- Internal flash-based media storage, upgradeable via USB and SD carts
- Games ship on proprietary iDensity discs of unspecified, but “large capacity”
- Console compatible with Wii games and devices but will not play in high-definition
