Next Gen Gaming Consoles: The Wii U

It's that time of year again, E3 is wrapping up and gamers around the globe are left thinking about all of the big announcements made during the week. Nintendo's keynote being one of the major highlights to reflect upon.

 Check it out:

It's all happening so fast, and I can't believe that new consoles are already being unveiled. I'm just not ready! I know it's been five years since the Wii launched, but I didn't get that much mileage out of it. Nintendo is definitely jumping on the tablet bandwagon with this one, but the new controller doesn't even have a multi touchscreen. It seems a bit rushed perhaps just so they can be first to enter the race. That is one reason to never buy a launch system, because the manufacturer always finds something that they can improve. Then a month later the new version comes out, leaving the people that bought their systems first with major problems (remember the red ring of death?) or an obsolete machine. That, and high price points at launch. Waiting can sometimes be a very good thing.
