Nintendo revealed their new home console, the Wii-U, due for release in 2012.
The controller includes a 6.2 inch touch screen, four triggers - two larger and two smaller - microphone, gyroscope, inward facing camera, a Home button, and an accelerometer.
It can be used to play full Wii games when the television isn’t available. It can also be used as a standalone multiplayer games platform. The Wii U controller was also shown in use with Wii games, used to throw shurikens at targets on the television, as a standalone display with Wii Fit and the balance board. It can be used to make video calls with friends, will feature a web browser and the ability to share video content to the television. It can clip on to the existing Wii Zapper for use as a live targetting reticule in shooting games.
Wii U is backwards compatible.
So you won’t just be able to play games but also use the Balance Board and other peripherals.
