E3 2011: Nintendo Announces Wii Successor "Wii U"
Posted by James Newton
Nintendo's new console is called Wii U.
The console comes with a touch screen sensitive controller and will allow streaming of games from the console to the portable controller.
Users can play games on the controller without the need to have the TV on, or completely independently, but the two can be combined: Nintendo showed the user pointing the controller at the TV to show aiming in baseball, for example.
Wii U will be released next year.
