Nintendo Introduces Wii U At E3

Earlier today at E3, Nintendo unveiled the successor to the popular Wii console, Wii U. It is essentially a redesigned Wii controller featuring new ways to interact with games. Wii U features an embedded touchscreen and camera. Nintendo claims this new system is backwards compatible with the current Wii console and Wii games, but games will have to be “Wii U Compliant” to take advantage of the new features. It looks promising.

In addition to the Wii U, Sony unveiled the PlayStation Vita at E3. This new device is Sony’s replacement for the PSP. The handheld has an expected price tag of $249. This one also looks promising.
