Nintendo Wii U images and specifications

Nintendo Wii UHere she is... isn't she beautiful? :) It's the new Nintendo Wii U console. Today @ the E3 Expo Nintendo unveiled their next generation console called the Wii U and it looks awesome! The Wii U is expected to launch in 2012. The Nintendo Wii U is approximately 1.8" tall x 6.8" wide x 10.5" long. The Wii U looks very similar to the Wii with nicer rounded corners. Nintendo also decided it was time to super size the controller. The Wii U controller has a built in 6.2", 16:9 touch screen. The Wii U controller includes (2) two analog Circle Pads. The Wii U controller screen gives you a second window into the video game world. The Wii U controller is rechargeable and has the following buttons: Power button, Home button, Control Pad, A/B/X/Y buttons, L/R buttons and ZL/ZR buttons. Is that it you say? Heck no! The Wii U controller includes a built-in accelerometer & gyroscope, camera, microphone, speakers, rumble, sensor strip and a stylus.

Nintendo probably spent millions on securing their nextgen console from being jailbroken/softmodded by the homebrew community. *Hopefully* they'll embrace the homebrew community and allow Wii U owners to do as they please with their hardware. Judging by their new 3DS terms of service, it's doubtful they'll go that route.
