EuroGamer - 2005, Nintendo unveiled the Wii at the Electronic Entertainment Expo - but it showed the console without its controller.
In 2011, Nintendo has come to Los Angeles and shown a controller, but not a console. Kind of.
After some slightly muddled messaging at today's grand unveiling in the Nokia Theatre, confusion reigned. Was this a handheld computing device in its own right? A new interface for Wii? Those were Wii remotes people were waving around, and the sports games and Mario Bros. in the promotional video looked awfully familiar.
