Nintendo Wii U announced at E3 without the domain name

Wii U

Nintendo has named its next game console to be released in 2012 the Wii U, but strangely enough, the company announced the successor to the Wii at E3 2011 without owning the domain name.

Up until a couple days ago, wiiu.com was a parked page, but after the announcement the owner of the domain has switched from a parked page to a Shopping.com affiliate site.

The .com domain name was first registered in the late nineties according to Whois history.  Wiiu.net was recently up for sale at Sedo, but has moved to a Parked.com page. 

Nintendowiiu.com was registered June 7th, but it too, isn’t owned by Nintendo.
