Nintendo's Wii U console keeps 'you' in mind
-So today, welcome to the world of Wii U.
-The Wii U is the latest console to join the Nintendo family, and at first glance, the combined motion control and touchscreen capabilities impressed the crowd at this year's E3 in Los Angeles.
-Stating that Wii U will change the way you play games is a pretty bold assertion.
-Nintendo says the Wii U will provide live interaction with other players, video calling, and even web browsing access.
-It sorta looks like an iPad, but it's meant to work with the home console as well and you can use it like a little second TV screen.
-But there are a lot of details we still don't know.
For example, battery life, how much it will cost, and the exact release date in 2012.
In addition to the hardware news, Nintendo celebrated the 25th anniversary of the game Legends of Zelda with a live choir and orchestra.
New releases of that popular title, along with a gold Wii remote,
will be released across all platforms starting June 19th.
-Nintendo once again is looking at filling out its classic gaming platform.
They're looking at all of those Mario games, the Zelda games.
At some point, it starts to feel a little bit tired.
-But Nintendo knows its these titles that help keep their fans loyal.
