Wii U can take on a more important role than the TV, so the console has a dedicated GamePad with a screen so people could play games while someone else was watching TV. It’s the first-dedicated personal screen, changing reliance on the TV screens, said Nintendo during its E3 press conference. “Wii U does three different things: changes gaming, how you interact with friends, and how you enjoy your TV,” said Reggie Files-Aime. “It stands to revolutionize your livingroom.” Amazon video, Hulu, Netflix were announced. YouTube as well. Nintendo said more on outside content coming to Wii U will be announced and detailed at a later date.
