Full English Translation Script For Japanese Nintendo Direct From 9/13/12

Cheesemeister on the NeoGAF forums has posted a full English translation of the Nintendo Direct Wii U Prevent Event that Nintendo held in Japan on 9/13/12. Here’s the video from that:

Hello, everyone. This is Iwata from Nintendo.
Today I’d like to take about 20 minutes to announce information regarding the Wii U, including 1st-party launch titles, pricing, and the release date.
Also, detailed information on 3rd-party software will be delivered in a separate “Nintendo Direct Wii U Preview” presentation at 11 pm tonight.
Now before I talk about the pricing and release date, I’d like to reiterate what kind of a platform the Wii U is.

This is the Wii U.
The Wii U is Nintendo’s first high-definition game console.
Imagery like what you see now that couldn’t be done by the 6-year-old Wii is now possible.
Not only is the HD-standard 720p resolution supported, but also “Full HD” 1080p.
On top of the increased resolution, the graphics processor can be used to handle various tasks aside from just graphics.
This usage is called “GPGPU.” [Translator's note: GPGPU stands for General-Purpose computing on Graphics Processing Units.]

Check out the link below for the rest of the translation.
