Yeah, the new console is called Wii U (we you):
http://wii.ign.com/articles/117/1173491p1.html
And the controller...it's different:
http://wii.ign.com/articles/117/1173521p1.html
Not much info on these pages tho...have to wait for details I guess...

Over all, I'm impressed. Sure, it's not quite what I wanted but it's a lot more than I expected.
Oh, and with a year or more before it comes out, there seems to be a good collection of real games starting. Not only some Nintendo games. Even EA is getting in on the action. They had the EA CEO come out and talk and they showed some basic trailer footage of some EA games including Army of Two and Battlefield 3.
Oh, and I think they showed a few pics of what looked like some HD Zelda in there somewhere (not necessarily from a game though, maybe just an example.) :o
Plenty of promise, now all they need to do is follow through!

Speaking of Battlefield 3, there's supposed to be some more shown this evening (in general, not Nintendo specific)

I love the design of the console itself. Hopefully it's as small as the original Wii was. One of the biggest complaints I've had with my Xbox is that it's huge. It weighs a ton and makes a shitload of noise, where my Wii was quiet as a mouse.
I never played the Wii a lot though. It was just too gimicky. There were basically no decent games for it, with the exception of maybe Super Smash Bros., Twilight Princess, and a Metroid game or two. The controller seems a bit bulky, but I do think the idea of the touch screen is cool. Easy inventory management or in-game maps and things like that.

And on a side note, is Nintendo the only one of the Big 3 releasing a new console? Besides the new PSP, I haven't heard anything from Xbox or Sony except game announcements.

For now yeah. The only thing else is, as you said, the Playstation Vita (new psp.)
Nintendo usually has a 5-6 year time frame in between their consoles and 2011 is the 6th year for the Wii so this time it will be 7 years in between (if Wii U comes out next year and my math is correct.)
Sony likes a longer time frame in between and Microsoft is probably trying to push the 360 for as long as they can.

A pic that IGN made with a bit of info on Wii U (spoiler'd because it's long):
Spoiler: show

Edit: Here's a small vid of someone trying out the Zelda HD demo (which is probably just to show what it's capable of...but you know they're already at least planning for a real Zelda HD game)

Yeah I agree. Not sure how thats going to play out in the public when it hits the shelves. Generally controllers get smaller, not the reverse.

It doesn't look that big to me, tbh. What I'm worried about is it being a rectangle with the buttons being parallel. Might put a strain on the wrists...

also it's bundled. they should sell it separately to lower the price of the machine since wii controllers still work.
