E3 2012: A Video Look at the Wii U GamePad

Nintendo’s official Youtube page just posted a video highlighting the capabilities of the Wii U Gamepad. The Gamepad features a mic and camera for video chat, an accessory connector for unannounced Gamepad peripherals, independent volume controls and a headphone jack, and the TV Control functionality allows you to control aspects of your TV like its volume.  Rumble functionality is included, and the Gamepad as a whole has been designed to make cross-platform development easier and more appealing for third-parties.
