I apologize in advance for the level of sexual tension in this video. i couldn't help it. The first time you set your hands on a videogame controller that you know is going to change your life is pretty intimate, emotional experience. If we had the time and the licensing budget, we would have used an instrumental version of "Like a Virgin" as the soundtrack for this video.
Anyway, yeah, the Wii U can output some beautiful graphics, both on an HD TV and on the controller, that much is certain.
