Nintendo Wii U Features New Design and a New Controller

June 5, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

When it comes to gaming consoles, the Sony PlayStation, Microsoft Xbox and the Nintendo Wii are the three most popular and preferred consoles out there.

The Nintendo Wii was criticized a while back for diverging from the familiar gaming experience and hardware that people have grown used to. This was because of the stick-style remote they offered with the gaming console, which seemed to be rather less convenient and fun than the normal gaming pads.

A while ago, news on the upcoming Nintendo Wii U started doing the rounds. The Nintendo Wii U is the successor of the original Nintendo Wii.

It comes with its own advantages over the previous Wii. It looks like the company has replaced the stick-style remote with a gaming pad quite similar to other gaming consoles.

The new gaming pad will feature a 6.2 inch touch screen as it was previously rumored to sport. But unlike the previous expectations, there will be no circle pads and will be replaced with normal analog joysticks.

At the bottom of the device, there will be a near field’s communication (NFC) scanner, which will hopefully give users a better gaming experience. The device will feature an accelerometer and gyroscope sensors.

You can control A/V equipments like television sets with the infrared transmitter that the console includes with itself.

Now, if you are just not into the touch screen and can’t play that well with it, you can always play with the Nintendo Wii U Pro controller which resembles the Xbox 360 controller. It is lighter than the other controller and so it is much easier for the user to engage in high intensity gaming with this controller.
