In 2012, the revolutionary Nintendo Wii game system will be replaced by a new model, the Wii U. The most notable thing about the U is the controller, which has a 6.2 inch, 16:9 touch screen and traditional button controls. So basically, picture a mini iPad built within a stretched out Nintendo 64 controller. While the Wii focused on gameplay rather than graphics, the Wii U will retain the features of the Wii but also output a 1080p resolution. With additional features such as a second screen experience on the high tech controller, along with cameras and microphones – expect a lot of cool game features. It’s also backwards compatible with Wii controllers and software.
