Nintendo E3 Update: The name is revealed… and the controller
Nintendo’s press conference has started and we finally know what the Wii 2 will be called. And that is… the Wii U! Not the Stream or the feel or the cafe but the Nintendo Wii U.
Reggie’s justification for the name was the fact that it is a system tailored made for one person in particular. You.
The Wii U’s new controller has also been shown and it does indeed have a 6.2 inch screen. The Wii U’s controller will allow you to carry on playing games on it when the TV is being used for something else.
The device will have twin 3D pads, D-pad, two shoulder buttons, twin triggers, microphones, accelerometer, camera, speaker and gyroscope. The controller can also be used to web browse, to find images to share on the big screen, or Web chat.
