With Nintendo set to reveal the Wii U's final design at E3 2012, many fans had thought that they'd have to wait until June to discover more about Wii U. However, Reggie said that Nintendo will be sharing information throughout the year.

Speaking with Spike TV at the CES technology show, Fils-Aime said: "We will be sharing information throughout the year so I won't say you'll have to wait until E3 but certainly we're not breaking new news here [at CES]. No launch date, no launch price, no launch games but we will be sharing information throughout the year on how we will be driving Wii U into households this year."

Exciting news. What do you want to know about Wii U first?

    How much additional controllers will be, if it indeed ends up with support for more than 1 controller (it would be stupid not to).

    Seeing all the features of the Wii U controller will be interesting, as i am sure there is a lot more to be revealed yet. Also the price will be interesting, i am hoping it won't be over Ł300, but whatever the price ends up been i know i will be getting one come launch day! Launch line up should be interesting. I think the ideal launch would be a game staring one of Nintendo's main characters, a game like Assassins Creed for gamers who don't normally play Nintendo games and something like Brain Training for other people. That way Nintendo can say they have something for everyone!

    I want to know if they'll drop the silly limits on download sizes for WiiWare games. I've already had to go without Super Meatboy, Scott Pilgrim, and now even Sonic 4: Episode II is victim of the limits. I'd also like to know whether the Virtual Console will continue to be supported beyond what is currently available i.e. more N64 titles and potentially the inclusion of some Gamecube titles if the Wii U doesn't plan to be compatible.

    Quite smart of nintendo not to drop all the information in one go, because we know microsoft and sony would just end up stealing ideas just like they always do. :x It will definately be a launch day purchase for me, I'm already saving up. 8)
