Apple Computer was not the only technology company making announcements this week. At the E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) being held in Los Angeles, California Nintendo announced their next home console.
This new hand-held controller is called the Wii u and is a companion to the popular Nintendo Wii gaming system.
Nintendo's marketing reads "With a revolutionary new touch screen controller, precision motion controls, and full HD graphics, a whole new world of play styles and gaming possibilities is on the horizon"
Here is a video of Nintendo employees actually using the new Wii U controller Nintendo Wii U Demo Video
If you're a person who enjoys seeing the corporate demo of the new and forthcoming products, you may prefer the following video, this is the actually presentation made at the E3 Conference Tuesday. I don't own a Wii, but have played on one. The coolest new capabilities in my mind are the ability to continue play on your Wii with the controller when someone else wants to watch TV and the ability to zoom in and use the controller to enhance your gaming experience (augmenting the other Wii controls).
This product remains in development with a projected release in 2012. For additional information on the Wii U - see the website here: Nintento Wii u
