Pocket-Lint: We managed to get our hands on the Wii U last E3, but a fair bit has changed for Nintendo's new console in a year. Not only has the controller, sorry, Wii U GamePad, been redesigned a tad, but there are actual games available to play now, so the concept is easier to grasp.
Initial impressions of the new GamePad - in both white and black - are good. It's plasticky, yes, but the buttons are all cunningly placed and it feels better in the hand than you'd imagine. The touchscreen is also brighter and better defined than you might think from Nintendo's videos and former teasers. It's also light, which is essential for much of its uses in gaming.
