Larry Frum, a video game journalist from CNN, was at E3 trying out Wii U on Tuesday. Frum begins his Wii U impression-article with a rhetorical question – “Will Nintendo’s forthcoming Wii U controller breathe new life into its aging Wii console?” Although Frum had a lengthy hands-on demo with Wii U during E3, he does not know that it is a brand-new console .
Frum thinks that Wii U is a new controller for the six-year-old Wii. I guess people are still confused about whether Wii U is a new console – even some video game journalists. Frum also talks about his experience with Wii U games and toward the end of the article, he calls Pikmin 3 a “kid title.”
