    Nintendo has chosen E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) as the place to announce new games and their new platform -- the Wii U. Go over to http://e3.nintendo.com/ where you can find out all the information about what promises to be a revolutionary system. Just click on the E3 Presentation button and you'll get the full 70 minutes. The Wii U doesn't come along until the latter part of the presentation, so you'll have to endure a lot before you learn all the neat stuff. :grin:

    I'm not sure how far back I need to be going, but there was a reason that controllers have had the tendency to bring ergonomics into their designs as various consoles evolved.

    The Wii U controller, while it's innovative and I'm sure incredibly unique, reminds of the old Atari Jaguar controllers from back in the day. Just this big monstrous thing that was awkward to hold and even more awkward to use. I think the idea of intigrating a touchscreen on your controller is neat, but the practical use of such a device for the hours (or more) that one is expected to play on their console, might be a limiting factor.

    The technology looks amazing but the ergonomics I could see being a problem.

    If the touch screen was capacitive touch and not resistive it would be better. But, for some reason Nintendo insists on that darn stylus and only a single input device....

    I wonder if the upcoming Zelda will be a dual platform game like the last one?
