Enter the Wii U
The Wii U is set to be the company's new console and it is expected to be released in 2012 at some point. The company has not provided many details on what the unit is, how it will work or how it will compete with other gaming consoles. It did mention that it will produce HD graphics with this system. Some also believe it will come with a touch screen tablet like computer as the controller. However, that's not confirmed.
It's a good thing that the company is releasing this product since there are now rumors that its competitors are ready to launch new systems as well. Rumors indicate that Microsoft will launch the Xbox 720. The PS4 may be in the works as well. Expectations are that the companies will announce these products at E3 in 2012.
For those who are gaming fans, have you given up on the Wii? Is it no longer your game console of choice? With sales still significantly high, it is likely that consumers will be interested in the new products but will they compete well enough with the competitors.
