Nintendo Gives Pre E3 Preview of Wii U Game Pad


Nintendo has blessed us with a few Pre E3 glimpses of the Wii U gamepad.  I have posted some pics below!


As you can see, the production version has a slightly different layout:

You can also see the inclusion of an NFC reader/writer

The classic  “PRO” controller looks similar to an Xbox controller, with a more comfortable layout. 

It seems that white and black will be our choices!

Here is a glimpse of the Mii Verse!

Video Chat will be a new feature for the Wii U

You can now share content from the gamepad to your TV screen

Is this the new achievement system that has been rumored?

A new Chat feature similar to twitter will be available

Eventually, it will be compatible with mobile phones

What are your thoughts on these pics?
