Nintendo's Wii U is a new console that includes a controller with a 6.2-inch screen. Adding a second screen to the living room creates a multitude of new video game experiences while offering families a variety of options to customize their entertainment.

Previously, video games played on a home console have been confined to the TV and offered identical viewpoints to each player in a multiplayer environment. Furthermore, watching TV and playing console games have been completely separate experiences. The new controller removes these boundaries, creating a more dynamic and fluid gaming and entertainment experience.

Wii U Features:

In addition to introducing new ways to play, Wii U also offers users a variety of non-gaming features to enhance the overall experience.

Miiverse: Miiverse is a brand-new network communication system that lets gamers from around the world share experiences, discuss games and discover new content. Using their personalized Mii character, players enter Miiverse and see games, applications or entertainment content that either they have interacted with recently, expressed interest in learning more about or that their friends are using or discussing. From here they can challenge their friends to play together, ask a question about a difficult level or discover new elements of their favorite games they never knew existed. After a notable achievement or other share-worthy moment, players can pause their game or application and seamlessly post messages to the Miiverse community.

TV remote: The Wii U GamePad controller may also function as an infrared TV remote, whether users are watching TV or playing a game.

Near Field Communication (NFC): The Wii U GamePad has the ability to communicate wirelessly with objects that are held above it. This allows for a variety of interesting new possibilities for games and activities.

Nintendo eShop: The digital storefront for Wii U will be available at launch and offer a variety of content for people to download and enjoy. Consumers will also be able to purchase and download select games that are also available at retail stores.

Video entertainment: Nintendo is working with Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, and YouTube to bring video experiences to Wii U that will take advantage of the integrated second-screen experience. Additional details will be released at a later time.

Video chat: Using the built-in camera of the Wii U GamePad, people can communicate with other Wii U owners in real time.

Internet browser: Wii U comes with a browser that lets people with a wireless Internet connection surf the Internet from the comfort of their couches.

Nintendo Network Premium: The Wii U Premium Pack also features a reward programme called Nintendo Network Premium which grants points for digital purchases in Nintendo eShop. Valued at around 10% of the original Nintendo eShop price, this credit can be used against future purchases once you reach a minimum of 500 points*.

At last Nintendo have seen the light and are trying their best to win back some hardcore gamers. We have got Assassin's Creed 3, Batman Arkham City, Aliens: Colonial Marines - ,Darksiders II and many more great games coming to a Nintendo console at last.
The Wii U touch screen controller is an amazing piece of kit which is ideal for gamers with partners because you can carry on playing your games when they want to watch their tv. The controller is user friendly for any type of gamer and is light to hold. The twin analog sticks on the controller feel perfect when playing Nintendo Land. The Wii U console feels rather heavey and built to an high standard and makes very little noise. All your old Wii games can be played on the Wii U console and the safe data can be transferred as well. The HD graphics look very nice indeed and at this moment in time the Wii U is the most powerful games console out there. Just like the original Wii Nintendo haven't tryed to make a console which will be as powerful as the PS4 and X-box 720 when they come out. They like to think out the box and come up with different ways for us to play and enjoy our games instead, which is why a long time gamer like myself enjoys a unique gaming experience. The Wii U Control Pad can been tuned in, so that it can work your tv which is pretty cool. Youtube looks stunning on the Wii U with it's HD picture. Have Nintendo done enough to win back more hardcore gamers? We will have to wait and see, but if the Wii U sells as well as the Wii did then they are onto another winner. I must say that some of Wii U updates take a very long time and would highly recommend that you make sure your Wii U Gamepad is connected into the mains when doing a update, so that there are no problems with the battery power running out.
Nintendo Land which comes with this Premium Pack and shows off the Wii U's very impressive controller. There are 12 unique games for you to enjoy with your friends and family or by yourself .

 Just amazing!

We have had the Wii u for 2 months now and own Nintendoland and super mario u. Both of these games are brilliant and the whole family love playing them together.

The whole concept with the gamepad just works and makes games really fun. It's a nice touch that you can use the old wiimotes for the extra players.

This is just a quality machine and I would recommend anyone to give it a go!!
