Once again mainstream media gets it wrong with news regarding the gaming industry.
(CNN) -- Will Nintendo's forthcoming Wii U controller breathe new life into its aging Wii console?
Hard to say at this point, but the Wii U is a solid accessory that will bring a fresh element to Nintendo gaming.

As Jeff posted via twitter "Pretty crazy that, even after a full year, some mainstream dudes still think the Wii U is a Wii accessory".
Is this just laziness on the part of the CNN journalist or has Nintendo not done enough to convey that this is a whole new console and not just an accessory? I know when they initially introduced the Wii U the whole focus was on the touch screen controller and barely even showed the console itself. I can see how this might have created some initial confusion but that was almost a year ago I still think CNN should have done their homework to understand the product before writing an article on it.
