Nintendo Announces Successor To Wii, The Wii U

At E3 today, Nintendo unveiled its follow up to the Wii, the Wii U. On top of offering souped-up HD graphics that are expected to be on par with or surpass the Playstation 3, the new home console system offers a radical reinvention of the standard video game controller. The Wii U boasts a tablet with a 6.2 inch touch screen that can act as a second screen in addition to your television. This promo video show off the controller's many features, including video chat and web browsing. Also in the mix is a peek at the brand new, unnamed Zelda game for Wii U.
