Agreed all round. The Wii U looks like a nightmare for broad accessibility. Some of those games demoed look impossible to make accessible for a huge range of people. Am I out of touch? I just looked at it and groaned...

Thanks, Steve. I read one of the articles yesterday on the Wii U and it was a very moving (and angering!) account about how Nintendo has taken the direction that they have and all of the ways that it threatens to close yet another avenue of gaming for the disabled.


Keep up the good work with the coverage!

It’s a great time for game accessibility. This is, to my knowledge, the first time E3 has had representation for disabled gamers live.
