now with actual analog sticks instead of the circle pads on the 3DS. good choice imho.
NEW WII U CONTROLLER
Wii U = $299.
Havok and Autodesk has been liscensed for Wii-u developers, at Nintendo's expense.
Ok so we have the E3 2011 thread talking about various things, including the Wii U, and a thread talking about what the wii U might be, before it was fully announced, but don't have a logical thread to talk about the now announced console, the games, potential, etc. Let this thread be your one stop Wii U shop.
Details are pretty light at this moment in time, So I'll just quote a review from ubergizmo:
Wii U Controller Preview
By Raymond Wong - 06/07/2011 22:06 PDT
Shocking nobody who’s paid any attention to all the rumors over the last couple of weeks, Nintendo unveiled the Wii U and its controller at its E3 press conference this morning. Boasting a 6.2-inch screen, dual analog circle pads, a mic, two pairs of rear triggers, a stylus and more, the controller wowed Nintendo fans near and far, gamers casual to hardcore and even many Sony and Microsoft diehards.
Just like the PS Vita, we immediately hopped over to Nintendo’s booth and awaited to go hands-on with the Wii U and its controller. Our full preview is just a click away.
Design and WeightSpoiler
Here's the info about only 1 tablet:
update: they are working on 2 controllers
Also note that the classic controller and classic controller pro both would be available for traditional gaming experiences.

no more friend codes, plus achievements and greater online experience, comparable to 360/ps3:
Dev kits that were handed out to developers pre-E3 were underclocked on purpose, noone knows how powerful the Wii U actually will be, but it's going to be well beyond PS3 and 360's hardware, as underclocked kits were 50% more powerful than the ps3:
I'll post more info as it becomes available (like price point and release date, as well as games.)
