Ok, there is a little bit of confusion about Nintendo's next gen console now officialy known as Wii U. So I want to make some things straight of what we do know about the console
Official Name (with logo):
Yes... it is in fact a console, not a controller:
Look at it... It's a more "rounded" original Wii. That's all we know...
I will call this controller the Wii U Tablet because it kind of acts like one. Now, I wasn't far off when I said that "stream" was the keyword for the next Nintendo console as you can read here: http://forums.n4g.com/m938139-print.aspx
Basically I said this: "Since the new Nintendo controller will likely have a screen, well, the possibility of playing different games is more plausible. Not only for games though, you could surf the web, listen to music, watch movies, download stuff etc... "
The Wii U Tablet will likely do that and more of course... obviously Nintendo didn't release more details...
Nintendo didn't release any specs at all and the third party games that were shown didn't specify that they were running on Wii U. But, they did show a couple of tech demos:
Now, this is supposed to be real time graphics. Many will say they aren't but if they were real... holy crap they are beautiful
Like the Gamecube before it, Wii U also showed a Zelda Demo:
This is not a real game... It appears to be Twilight Princess running on Wii U... awesome.
That's basically what we know about Wii U, many unanswered questions... but let's take some time to think the possibilities of this new console
What do you think?
