Nintendo gives 2nd glimpse of Wii U game machine
LAS VEGAS (AP) - January 10, 2012 (WPVI) -- Nintendo's upcoming Wii U game console will come with a controller that has a big, touch-enabled screen. At first glance, that seems like an obstacle to the kind of casual multiplayer gaming that made the first Wii console such a breakout hit.
But in its demonstrations for U.S. news organizations, the company emphasizes that the Wii U will work with the cheaper, stick-like Wii controllers as well, making family multiplayer games feasible.
The Japanese company is giving some journalists hands-on time with the console on the sidelines of the International Consumer Electronics show, which started Tuesday in Las Vegas.
It's the second time the U.S. media is getting a glimpse of the device, which was first shown in June. Nintendo says it will launch after this June.
