    Post What we know so far

    The console looks like this..

    The controller looks like this



    Via Kotaku
    We've seen it in person, played with its unique control scheme. It is a combination of a more traditional interface—as previously reported, the New Controller has two analog sticks, one d-pad, four face buttons, two shoulder buttons and two triggers—and the tilting, turning and shaking motion controls that made the Wii a smash success.

    The new controller also incorporates a large touchscreen interface, a front-facing camera, gyroscope, and microphone.

    Nintendo offered the following loose technical specifications to Kotaku in a pre-briefing on Nintendo's New Console.
    • High definition display, up to 1080p resolution via HDMI output
    • 6.2" touchscreen on New Controller, running in non-HD resolution
    • Internal flash-based media storage, upgradeable via USB and SD carts
    • Games ship on proprietary iDensity discs of unspecified, but "large capacity"
    • Games will also be available as downloadable content
    • Console compatible with Wii games and devices
    • Release date between April 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012; or after the end of Nintendo's fiscal year
    Discs are up to 25gig

    my two cents:

    that is the ugliest most uncomfortable looking controller I have ever seen, including the first original xbox controller. WOW shrink the screen 20% and put handles on it first before putting a price tag on it.

    on the other hand LOTS of potential for video games but the old wii still does not have a single game that fully takes advantage of what it can do. This wii U better be something more than an educational toy for kids.

    I LOVED Okami so naturally that and Epic Mickey and zelda style games is the logical type of games to play on it.

    This early it all looks fake and I can't imagine why game developers would try to make an adult game with a whole lot of bells and whistles with a controller that would send an able-bodied person to the hospital.

    and yes I am cranky today but why build wii U when the wii is still a failure *shakes head*

    People that have had a chance to try it at E3 are reporting that it's surprisingly comfortable to hold. Keep in mind it's not just flat on the bottom, it has contours for your hands.

    Plus I don`t think Nintendo would make that mistake, they are always improving the ergonomics of their products again and again.

    I just loved what I saw.

    There's a better shot floating around that shows the complete underside of the controller, but here's a shot from the Nintendo website showing a bit of the underside visible from the side.

    thanks for that Skippy but I still don't like the shape and the size of it and I have perfect piano key hands. If I can't hold that thing and press the buttons without building my own set of handles I am at a loss to call that thing fun.

    i.e. I can't play a ds for an hour without cracking my knuckles and nintendo spent to much time in the poppy fields ....... urgh I mean at least show me two controller models to pick from. I still love the wii controllers and that thing would definately suck for a good guitar player that has trouble making all the chords.

    So, will the Wii U be able to play all my current Wii games in 1080p?

    I don't think they've said anything yet, but the 3DS was just updated to allow porting over stuff like that from the DSi, so I'm assuming that it's likely they'll figure out something, but we'll have to wait and see.
