Are you a Gamer, do you have kids, or just thoroughly enjoy a way to have fun, well this post may be for you. Nintendo’s newest game console, the Wii U, will be available this holiday season. Now I am sure the first thought is what makes this any different from the Wii?
Well if you’ve looked at my picture, then there is an immediate difference, there is a component that looks like a handheld game device beside the console. But there are many other features that make this a very attractive console to buy this year:
- The console itself has been slimmed down to allow it to blend in with more with the home as well as making it easier to find a space for it.
- The Wii U has internal flash memory, in addition to SD cards and external USB drives
- Like it’s predecessor, it will also have Wireless connectivity
- Backwards compatibility, meaning you will be able to play all your original Wii games on the new Wii U system (This is huge to me, nothing worse than having to get rid of your games or let them collect dust when buying a new system)
Those are some of the techs, but what about that new controller? That is known as the GamePad. Not only does it function as a controller, but it has a 6.2 inch LCD touch screen. It also has motion control capabilities, a front facing camera, microphone, stereo speakers, and rumble features. It also serves as an infrared remote.
There are at least 20 game titles slated to be released for the new console, such as Batman Arkham City, Assassin’s Creed III, and what would a Nintendo system be without a new Super Mario Bros.
So will the Wii U be on your 2012 holiday shopping list?
