"Around this time last year we had just started to discover that Nintendo had a new console ready to show off at E3 2011. The console that was ultimately shown however left more than a few gamers with a bad taste in their mouths. Now heading into E3 2012, it is the perfect opportunity for Nintendo to correct that.
As many would recall the console appears to be little more than a beefed up Wii with an iPad for a controller. Okay, that’s a little too harsh, but the fact remains that it didn’t look like much of a significant upgrade from the Wii besides the inclusion of the new controller. That’s not all though, the name of the machine itself is literally the Wii U. This in itself is more a problem than it is a blessing."
