IT’S BIG: Nintendo Co.’s upcoming Wii U game console will come with a touch-screen controller almost as big as the game console itself.

WHAT THAT MEANS: At first glance, that seems like an obstacle to the kind of casual multiplayer gaming that made the first Wii console such a breakout hit. But the company says the Wii U will also work with the cheaper, stick-like Wii controllers.

AVAILABILITY: It will go on sale after the E3 gaming trade show in June. Nintendo hasn’t announced prices.
