Nintendo hard at work to find way to use more than one tablet for their next console.Nintendo hard at work to find way to use more than one tablet for their next console.

It seems that Nintendo had originally planned to have only one controller / tablet accessible to the Wii U at launch time (the other controller would have been your standard Wii-mote variety). Someone at Nintendo must have realized that this would probably be a bad idea so they have been hard at work at trying to make two tablets work for the console. The console's processor and RAM constraints may have played a part in pairing a singular tablet. However, Nintendo may have solved this so multi-tablet gaming may be coming to a living room near you.

Sony finally pulls the curtain back on their new Wii-like motion controllers.Sony finally pulls the curtain back on their new Wii-like motion controllers.

I like how Sony's marketing department is billing this a way to 'graduate' for respective owners of the Nintendo Wii console.  Upgrading your current PS3 setup with these new motion controllers (with video camera) will set you back a hundred bucks or less.
