Nintendo Draws First Blood
There seems to be a lot of potential here, including allowing one player to influence the play field on their screen while others struggle against his influence with regular Wii controllers, or even being able to move the game completely onto the controller while someone else watches the TV. It comes off as a mish-mash to me, however. Do we want motion control in our controllers, or do we want a big screen? Also, I'd be very worried handing over a controller with a screen to my 4 and 6 year old sons.
At any rate, here's hoping the Wii U boosts Nintendo's sagging bottom line, and doesn't become the company's Atari 7800. As always, for more information on the history of Nintendo, consult your local Dot Eaters entry.
