Wii U Announced and Detailed in Full

Nintendo's opening E3 2011 keynote took a wild turn near the end with an announcement of a brand new piece of hardware. "In thinking about a new Nintendo system we knew the prevailing thought would be this: yes, the game would probably be right for all of us, but could it also be a perfect fit just for you," said Satoru Iwata, Nintendo's Global President.

His presentation includes a series of "live" songs from the game played by the in-house orchestra. Certainly a strange display for the 25th anniversary of the Zelda series.

Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel debuts at E3 2011

I have mentioned before that we have all three of the major game consoles in my house. We tend to play the PS3 more than anything else.
