The Wii U was recently announced by Nintendo. This new game console combines the best of handheld gaming and the TV. It is said to support all Wii accessories. The Wii U will connect to the TV and output HD video and the handheld controller will have a single-touch touchscreen. The controller itself is really not a tablet, although it looks like one. The video is streamed from the Wii U itself.
Currently, Nintendo has not given any clues on how much this console is going to cost and the release date is also unknown.
