Reggie Fils-Aime has revealed in an interview with G4tv.com as to why the controller took centre stage with the reveal of the Wii U, rather than the console itself.
“We focused on the controller, because that really is going to drive the key point of difference,” Fils-Aime commented. “Yes, the visuals are going to be beautiful – we showed just a smattering of what we can do – but what will make it new, unique, different is going to be the controller.”
Fils-Aime also confirmed that whilst Wii software would be compatible with the new Wii U system, it wouldn’t receive any graphical enhancement.
