Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Games, told of the moment when he saw Wii U for the first time

"I was surprised quite frankly because it seemed that there were a lot of gamers and a lot of creative directors who were saying: 'this is what we want'. It seems like Nintendo heard the voices of the hardcore gamer.

"What I was most surprised about the Nintendo controller was the ability for it to stream content from wirelessly to the controller."

But does this mean that Bioshock will be coming to Wii U? Levine didn't reveal if he was working on any games for the console but he did confirm that he is excited by the new console.

"When any new tech comes along you have a period of experimentation," he added. "I'm certainly excited about it as a gamer and seeing what's going to come out."
