The official Nintendo Magazine got their hands on a Wii U console, and luckily, they brought a camera with them. The video shows the Wii U console and GamePad controller in lots of close up shots, and finally, it’s compared with the original Wii and the GameCube as well. You can see that while the Wii U is about the same width and height as the Wii, it’s considerably longer. Full video below.
