E3 2011: Wii U? Pfft we can do that.

Those who watched Nintendo’s press conference yesterday, or read our write-up, will have seen the first details and footage of Nintendo’s next home console, Wii U. With its interesting new controller other businesses have been thinking, could we do that?

One of the businesses which springs to mind is Sony. With plans to release PSVita, an all new handheld with very similar capabilities to the Wii U controller, by the end of 2011 in multiple regions, Sony have decided to look into seeing if they can get their PS3 and PSVita to communicate in at all the same way. In fact, Sony have already had the technology for a while. The PSP can already communicate with PS3 and has the ability to play certain PS3 games on the handheld. In fact, Sony have already said that they are going to start looking for ways to achieve something similar on Playstation. Let’s see what that experimenting goes Sony.

Now thinking about incorporating the tech is one thing, doing it is another. In fact there is a company that already have a similar interface and have it working. This company would happen to be the Video Game Streamers at OnLive. OnLive say in a video (shown below) that they have already got this tech working. And the beauty of it is that it works on your iPad and other tablets. Because of Cloud gaming OnLive are releasing the apps that will allow you to sync your OnLive account to the tablet and play there, and it can be seen on your OnLive on the TV. For a better explanation watch the video below.
