The Wii U got a proper unveiling at E3 last week. Now the dust has settled we've had a chance to put our thoughts together (and play with the system in London) to bring you a rounded report on what the Wii U has got going for it - and what it doesn't.
While Nintendo has focused almost entirely on the tablet controller that comes with the Wii U, there is a new console - unlike what some members of the mainstream media thought last year. The small box isn't too dissimilar to the design of the current Wii, but the internals are significantly improved.
The exact performance levels of the console haven't been revealed, but reports and leaked spec sheets suggest that the Wii U will be able to produce visuals on a par with the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 - and hopefully a bit better.
Core to the whole experience is the tablet controller, officially named the Wii U GamePad. This device features a touch screen display, two analogue sticks, microphone, camera, gyroscope and more. The neat thing about it is that you can either use it as a second screen for games being played on the TV or as the main gaming screen, bypassing the TV altogether.
