1) Hands-On with the Nintendo Wii U at CES 2012

Our Jon Rettinger got some hands-on time today with the Nintendo Wii U and its controller in a closed-door meeting at CES 2012 today.

The console itself hasn’t been finalized yet, however it appears the controller has been.  Initial reports indicate that while the unit is odd looking, it’s a surprisingly nice fit in the hand – very reminiscent of how the N64 controller looked and acted.
