Nintendo Wii U at CES 2012

By On 22nd December, 2011

Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft will all be at 2012’s CES show. Microsoft do not have any new hardware to show off while Sony has there latest handheld console the PS Vita and Nintendo have the latest edition into the gaming console market, the Nintendo Wii U. Nintendo has confirmed there will be a booth displaying the potential of the Wii U and attendees will have a chance to get there hands on the next generation console. However, speaking to 1up, Nintendo did reveal that it would not be demonstrating anything new just the same demo that was shown at the 2011 E3 Expo.

“Nintendo of America, working with the 2012 International CES management, will offer demos of the upcoming Wii U console to members of the media who did not see the system at the 2011 E3 Expo, However, Nintendo will not have a booth at CES, nor does it plan to include any games, experiences or information beyond what was available at the 2011 E3 Expo. Production and development efforts remain on track for the Wii U launch, which will take place between the start of the 2012 E3 Expo in June, and the end of 2012.”

So its probably not likely that we will hear much about the Nintendo Wii U until 2012 E3 Expo! But Sony will be more than likely drilling the Vita at CES in January, already released in Japan and expected in Europe on the 22nd of February it will be a good time for Sony to showcase there latest console. With a similar control set to that of the wii u tablet controller the Vita is not far off the Vita. It will be interesting to see how the Vita interacts with the Playstation 3 Console. Will it be much differen’t from the Wii U and its Tablet Controller?
