Project Café Unveiled
Following nearly two months of rampant speculation, Nintendo took the wraps off their successor to the Wii console. Formerly known as Project Café, the new system is now officially called the Wii U. Why such a strange title? Nintendo isn't saying - yet - only that just as with Wii before it, it will conceptually make more sense sometime in the foreseeable future. While few details were given regarding technical specs, anticipated launch titles, or pricing, Nintendo did have a few small tidbits of information to share about the new console. Foremost of this information was the reveal of the new controller - which, at its core, is a 6.2" touch screen panel housed in a plastic casing. Much like its predecessor, the Wii U's controller sports an innovative design, which, Nintendo hopes developers will take advantage of to create new and compelling game experiences.
