The system seems to be at least as powerful as the PS3 and according the Reggie, it already has tons of great third party developers working on it with games like Ninja Gaiden 3 and Battlefield 3. This is also great given the little support the original Wii has. It is very common to see tons of games making it to the PS3 and the Kinectbox 360 (ahem.. I mean Xbox) but not the Wii. It's definitely good to see Nintendo reaching out to the first party support again.
Take a look at some of the new console's pictures:
A look at the unusual new controller for the console. It features a 6.2 inches touchscreen, two analog sticks, four face buttons and a D-pad.
This is the back of the controller, it has two L and two R buttons.
The Wii U controller with a tech demo of Super Mario Bros Wii on it's screen.
And this is the console itself, it will read 12cm HD disc for the games and has backwards compatibility with the original Wii.
