Nintendo Explains Why Only Wii U’s Controller Was On Display Today

At Nintendo’s press conference earlier today, the company unveiled for the first time its new console dubbed Wii U, however only the revolutionary controller was shown, and NoA boss Reggie Fils-Aime explained why.

“We focused on the controller, because that really is going to drive the key point of difference,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, speaking in a video interview with G4. “Yes, the visuals are going to be beautiful – we showed just a smattering of what we can do – but what will make it new, unique, different is going to be the controller.”

He also confirmed that Wii U wouldn’t give Wii games a graphical boost, but they’ll run smoothly. Wii U comes out next year.
