Unlike the copycat thread designed to trash Wii U and created by someone who hates Nintendo, this thread is for those who genuinely are interested to learn about Wii U.


Only a couple hours to go! :up:

Get your facts right Assraper.

I am a gamer of all consoles, I don't hate Nintendo, i have grown up with Nintendo for nearly 30 years. I just think the Wii was a steaming pile of shit, like most gamers who grew up with the Big N. Lets hope Nintendo can make us happy again.

Visit my awesome thread started by an unbiased gamer, not a biased Ninty Fanboy.

There the news can be delivered freely without biased views and as fans of games can discuss Nintendo's next gen console as unbiased adults...

Can a mod close this thread please? We already have an Official Nintendo Wii U thread. Not sure why this is copied from that one.

Thanks.

I'm not in favour of copycat threads, guttermouths perfectly good thread already exists.

I'll leave it up to Cletus to decide this threads fate.

I wonder if Wii U's games will manage to surpass the iPhone 5's for graphical fidelity.

You can video chat or browse the web on Wii U, whilst game is still running in the background

External HDD can be used for additional storage with either Wii U model

Both Nintendo's first party launch titles (NSMBU & Nintendo Land) will be available as digital download releases on Wii U launch day

Interesting tidbit...

Wii U will consume only 75 W of power under full load - half as much as PS3/360. Power consumption drops to 40 W when browsing menu, Miiverse and other non-gaming applications.

Do you like Xbox 360 games with slightly better textures and some slightly nicer shaders? Happy with that for the next 5 years? Wii U is for you then.

Considering the hardware it is using and the fact it is made in 2012 I'd hope it would consume less power than either of those.

What about the hardware? You're not happy to play a Legend of Zelda that looks like this?
