The WiiU controller includes a 6.2 inch touch screen, four triggers, a microphone, a gyroscope, inward facing camera, a home button, and an accelerometer. At first glance, the WiiU's controller gives off the impression of something that looks uncomfortable to hold. Like many, I was confused at first, but it does deserve more than a hint of optimism; Nintendo could be on to something with the endless possibilities of their new console. Yet, one thing needs to be addressed: online. HD is finally being embraced by Nintendo, but will they finally have an online interface akin to Live or PSN?
It will be interesting to see what this offers, but until then, we'll have to wait until mid or late 2012 to get our hands on WiiU.
