June 7th, Nintendo held a press conference at E3 2011 where the Wii U was announced. It introduces a new controller with a large touch screen. Using the screen, you can play certain games without the use of a TV. Not many features have been explained, so we can use this topic to discuss what we would like to see, and want to see in the Wii U. This topic will be updated with gathered information and the latest in Wii U discussion.

Features

Controller's 6.2-inch touch screen introduces a new way to interact with games

HD Graphics

Internal Memory

Backwards compatible with Wii games

Wii U can download and play games

Currently being updated. Feel free to discuss the new hardware.

What do you guys think of the new controller?

I'm not sure how comfortable it will be, but it's still interesting.

The PS1 was decent in reliability. I think the toughest console of all had to be the N64. That thing is a absolute tank. It's a good possibility they tested it against rockets to ensure it could survive anything, including assaults from military forces. When the world ends, you may be dead, but the N64 will live on!
