Its a great sytemPosted .
I am an average gamer I own ps3, xbox 360, ps vita, nintendo ds, wii and wii u. This system is great the graphics are really good for a Nintendo console but same graphics as ps3 and 360. What i love a lot is the tablet controller you can use it as a TV controller, play without the use of a TV, and to surf the web it works the same as my nexus 7. I love the fact that you can watch netflix in the tablet it has a built in speaker or you can use headphones. The downside of it is that you cant play blurays or DVDs which is a big let down since their were a lot of rumors that it was. The price is a little high but once you play it it wont feel as bad. Netflix is going to take a long time to load the first time after a few times it load fasterI would recommend this to a friend

The Wii U is great for the entire familyPosted .
I pre-ordered my Wii U Deluxe Console from Best Buy and picked it up when the store opened with no wait. I got it home and set up the internet connection so I could start downloading the day one system update. I know it is a necessary evil since they had to start manufacturing to make sure they had enough units on the shelves. The download took a long time and did fail a couple of times. I was expecting issues though since so many people would be trying to download the update (400,000 units in the first week). After the updates were installed, I popped in Nintendoland and let it perform the needed update. After that, it was off to the games. My kids and I had a blast playing Nintendoland. The gamepad is very responsive and it is very cool to have a completely different experience from the other four players on the Wii Remotes. Nintendoland will show you a lot of different ways to play using the game pad. My kids love Mario Chase, Sweet Day, Pikmin Adventure and the Captain Falcon racing game. I also enjoy the Zelda and Yoshi's cart games. The other game I bought is New Super Mario Bros U. lt also used the gamepad very well. First, you can play the entire game on the gamepad without ever turning on the TV. This is excellent if you someone else wants to watch TV and you still want to play games. The other inventive use of the gamepad is in multiplayer mode. The gamepad allows a fifth player to draw platforms to help (or hinder) the players with the Wii Remotes. The player with the gamepad can also tap the touch screen to stun bad guys, pop bubbles and stop certain machines. Netflix took me a little while to get working but it was not a problem for everyone. I tried a hole bunch of trouble shooting tips and finally found the solution on the Netflix MiiVerse Community. Once I changed my MTU settings on the network connection Netflix started working. The MiiVerse communities are great places to find help on games or with the apps like Netflix, YouTube and Hulu+. I downloaded the YouTube channel after it became available. I tested out the channel and I am not impressed. The first problem I have is the video selection. The first screen that loaded had profanity right in the title. The good news is my kids were already in bed so I didn't have to explain what that word meant. I didn't spend too much with the app because it didn't seem very user friendly. The only unexpected negative I have seen so far with the console is the load time. Sometimes, it can take 20-30 seconds to load an app. This issue could be fixed with a future software update. The battery life on the gamepad is about 3.5 hours. Some people may think this is too short. To me, it it a good excuse to limit the amount of gaming my kids do. The Wii U is compatible with MOST Wii games and peripherals. The Wii Remotes, Nunchuks, Balance Board and classic controllers are all supported. To play Wii games, you have to go to the Wii Menu from the main screen on the gamepad. As soon as you switch to the Wii mode, the gamepad turns off and you can only use the controllers for the Wii. There is a process to transfer games from the Wii to the Wii U and I just completed the transfer last night. The process is a bit complex and time consuming. Make sure you thoroughly read the instructions and have both consoles hooked up to a TV and the internet. It may be less time consuming for most people. My problem was my Wii just came back from the repair shop. Since all of my data was wiped out, I have to re-download all of my purchases. Only one game in my Wii collection could not be transferred: Lost Winds for WiiWare. Finally, the black version of the console is a finger print magnet. I highly recommend purchasing a silicone case for the gamepad. It eliminates the finger prints and does not hinder the performance. Overall, I love the new wii U. The day one updates (and issues) were expected so I am not marking down for these. I marked performance down because of the load times for the applications. Again, that could be fixed with a software update I didn't deduct too much. I am looking forward to a lot of great gaming on the Wii U!!!I would recommend this to a friend

"Entertainment Console" with potentialPosted .
The Wii U isn’t necessarily a “wow gotta try this” euphoria effect like the Wii was back in 2006. Of course there is the anticipated release of franchise exclusive software titles with the new gameplay and visuals which may stimulate buzz with some gamers but not necessarily all. With that said, this console is much more on par to be a multipurpose entertainment console. For me personally, I picked this up on Day 1 for SMB.U but after a few days of using the console as a whole, find myself using other features I didn’t intend to. For my streaming media, I usually use XBOX360 for Netflix and HuluPlus. Netflix is currently available on Wii U and I found the experience to be actually quite good. Using the large gamepad screen to navigate and control movies was very simple and I could pause with a touch of a button instead of yelling loud enough at the Kinect to be heard over the TV volume to pause. Another feature I find myself using a lot is using the TV remote control function of the gamepad. It can be used in conjunction with the Wii U or just as a touch-screen remote when the console is off. Picking up the controller to turn on and watch TV, change volume is convenient and there is a softbutton you can press on the screen to turn on the Wii U and you can use the input button to switch to your HDMI input for Wii U. Or of course you can use the hard power on button on the gamepad itself. With HuluPlus and other streaming apps coming available, I can see myself using the Wii U for that over XBOX360/Kinect for those applications specifically. As far as the games there is definitely potential. Again unlike Wii Sports release in 2006, the game “NintendoLand” didn’t leave me feeling like wow I have to show everyone this! It is good to demonstrate some of the new gameplay techniques and my wife and I found a couple games on there we try to beat eachothers score but nothing really stood out as a “must have”. Madden 13 on the XBOX360 was one of my favorite Madden games of the franchise. On the Wii U however it is my least favorite. It is clear the developers only worked on the gameplay aspect of two screens. That feature(touch screen play selection and drawing receiver routes) is cool and a nice addition. However the graphics are horrible and frame rate is choppy. I’m sure future releases will be polished up but as a release title makes Wii U look pretty bad. New Super Mario Brothers U on the other hand (the reason I purchased the Wii U) I was not disappointed. The gameplay and visuals are what I expected. Graphics are colorful, crisp, and smooth. Again not showing off the Wii’s graphical potential but what I’d expect for a SMB game. I usually use the original Wii controller to play it. I played it on the gamepad but don’t really see a benefit and never am in a scenario where I’d need to play it just on the gamepad so someone can watch TV. The console itself can be noisy at times, particularly when reading the game disk. It doesn’t bother me but I know some people have a thing with noisy consoles. So in summary, I’m very happy with the console and despite games like Madden 13 which make Wii U look bad, SMB.U did not disappoint me and other areas such as the TV remote and Netflix experience exceeded my expectations. This is a console in its infancy with a lot of potential to evolve with software updates and game title releases. There is a “new” gameplay experience to be had with this console but I don’t think it will be as demanded as the Wii was in 2006. I’m happy with my Mario game and Netflix app but if it were just for NintendoLand and no streaming media experience, I’d still be interested but not buy until more software titles came out that I actually wanted to buy. Unless you know for sure what you like and what you want about it, I’d recommend trying it in the store to see if it is something that is a “must have” for you. A lot of people purchased the Wii U just to re-sell it which is going to skew actual demand by advertising “sold out” everywhere. I honestly don’t see a supply shortage happening for as long as the original Wii so if you only want it because it is sold out (not for the intent to resell it), I’d wait until demand is available and possibly a price drop. I purchased my 3DS on day one and in less than a year had over $100 price drop and the release of the 3DS XL. Doh! :)I would recommend this to a friend

Nintendo does it againPosted .
If there's one thing you can count on Nintendo for, it's doing things different from the competition. Whereas other console manufacturers seem to be in an endless battle over graphic fidelity with diminishing returns each generation, Nintendo has instead focused on changing things up, as they did with their previous game console, the Wii, which introduced motion controls into mainstream gaming. The new element this time, alongside new HD graphics and an online community filled with fellow gamers, is the GamePad, which is essentially a controller with a large touch screen smack in the middle of it. Much like the DS before it, the touch screen can be used for complex actions, give you a different view of the action, allow a second player to control what's happening on the big screen, post handwritten messages or drawings for online players to see, or simply provide a constant map or inventory screen you can immediately access. In certain games, you can even play the game in its entirety on the GamePad, leaving the television free for others to use. There are also many fantastic games to be enjoyed, which use the GamePad in interesting ways. The Wii U also features an online store, where you can download full retail games directly to your hard drive, or browse through dozens of quality indie titles and old school NES and Super NES games. The only downside I can come up with is the battery life of the GamePad... it's terrible, at only about 3-5 hours, depending on useage and screen brightness settings. Fortunately, you can still use the GamePad while it's charging. Lots of games are in the pipeline for this console, and what's currently available is quality stuff. Between excellent software, a fun interface, and an amusing online community, Wii U is a perfect console for both casual and hardcore gamers.I would recommend this to a friend

Much better than I expected!Posted .
Before I start I am no "fanboy" of any console, as I own all consoles. With that being said they WII U has surprised me in many ways. Knowing that the machine is more powerful then the Xbox 360 and PS3 Graphics are great but wasn't that much of a surprise, what surprised me is how cool it runs unlike the Xbox 360 ps3. PROS: The WII U is a great sized console just a little bit bigger the WII so no need to worry about it taking up so much space. Playing New Super Mario Bros U looks so great in HD. When I first seen the Wii U at E3 first thought about the game pad is that its going to be another gimmick but my thought was wrong it actually works really well with the console. It is a nice size, great weight not heavy and very responsive. Another great thing about the game pad it can be used as a TV/Cable remote, Note the Wii U console does not have to be on to use this feature. The console interface is pretty neat also. Miiverse is a great way to keep up with other fellow gamers on the Wii U network, its like a small version of a twitter per say. I own 3 games for it (New Super Mario Bros U, Nintendo Land, Scribblenauts unlimited) and I have to say they all look and play great. CONS: The day one update took about an hour to complete! The way the update works is very similar to the PS3 when it downloads the update then it has to install it. Also on another note is after the update is done installed it uses about 5GB of memory, so if you have the basic console you will only have 3G left to use. Now the Wii U launch title selections was not the best. Most of the games I have on other consoles or just didn't care for. The game pad battery life is not the greatest neither, it only last about 5-6 hrs. The Wii U pro controller does not have very many titles out to be used for, so I purchased it so I would be able to play Super Mario Bro U but it does not work with it and now I don’t have use for it yet. I was surprised on how long I caught my self-playing the Wii U since I never really played our regular Wii it just sat there. Its a great console yea they may be "LATE" to the HD world but who cares its about how fun video games are and what they are capable of doing.I would recommend this to a friend

CURRENT GEN EPIC NEW NINTENDO CONSOLE!Posted .
Don't listen to the one star review, he is just a xbox fanboy that has no respect for other consoles except his own kind he likes. This is a current generation console that has 1080p games that are EXCLUSIVE to the Wii U, such as New Super Mario Bros. U and Zombiu. This console has games for everyone, from young to old and casual and hardcore gamers. The new screen controller makes gameplay different and unique, unlike other consoles. Unique features with the Gamepad make multiplayer and single player fun, such as in Nintendo Land with the attraction Mario Chase, one person is mario with the gamepad and the others are toads with wii remotes. This new console makes multiplayer gaming, with family and friends, very unique and fun. Single player is great too. Bringing games like New Super Mario Bros. U to the Gamepad if someone wants to watch TV is great, it really helped me continue going through worlds when my sister wanted to watch the TV. This console is great, don't listen to ignorant fanboys, such as the guy below, who do not know anything about Nintendo consoles. THE WII U IS EPIC!I would recommend this to a friend

Very Cool technologyPosted .
The Wii U already reigns superior to the Wii, with HD graphics, mature content games, unique tablet style interface and features, and some very cool sounding games on the horizon. I have to say so far I have really enjoyed the Wii U and am excited to see a Metroid or Link game on here step out of the old cartoon looking Nintendo world and into a more realistic and gritty world on these new HD graphics. Overall, great system, especially for those who love Nintendo, and though the tablet may at first seem like a gimmic, it has never felt so when playing on the system. Unlike the motion sensor style of the Wii, the tablet works itself rather seemlessly into my game play. Downsides: Most launch games are titles that have been out for awhile on PS3 and Xbox. So unless you ONLY had a Wii before, not a lot being offered there to get excited about. What will be critical is Nintendo's ability to secure third party titles (which already seems to be a problem just looking at the 2013 initial lineup of AAA games). However, many of the big early 2013 AAA games were well into production, so I'm hoping the reason the Wii U isn't going to see them is because of timing. Still, the Wii U has some great games coming in 2013 with Bayonetta 2, Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3, and possibly even a new Mario Kart and Smash Brothers, and 2014 even bigger still with Link and probably Metroid on the way. Regardless, at least this time it feels like there's a greater sense of dedication from Nintendo to making the Wii U work, securing third party titles, and making block buster first party titles that stack up to the core AAA games. The open question is can Nintendo accomplish all this.I would recommend this to a friend

Great for those who haven't made the HD leap yetPosted .
So, I have been following this system for a long time and I picked it up at launch. Needless to say I was very excited. After a long update process (around two hours) I jumped in and made some Miis and began playing NintendoLand. The gamepad immediately brought a new and fun dimension to games, that I've never experienced before. The children and my girlfriend had a lot of fun as we played for many hours the first day and beyond. The controller really is neat. Built in camera, microphone, speakers and headphone port along with the big vivid screen make this a very impressive and functional controller. It is light and ergonomic and any small child can use it with ease. The system now supports many video services, Miiverse (like an online messaging system), friends (with real names/IDs), an eShop for buying games digitally, external HDs up to 2TB, and downloadable apps and programs. I was disappointed by slow interenet connections, but I blame that partially on my ISP and current set-up, so I will be trying a wired adaptor. Miiverse is a really neat way to stay connected with a community message board where you can leave notes, messages, or black and white sketches. You can also find new friends within Miiverse and send friend requests like in other HD consoles. Overall I am happy with my purchase after only playing two games (NintendoLand and ZombiU, both recommended) and using the few available apps online. This system has a lot of potential, with things like Nintendo TVii, future games, art style applications, camera supported features, and more media possibilities. This is great for families, like Wii was, but seems to also be getting support for core gamers with T and M rated games from third party developers. Overall this system is a sleek, multifunctional game system that support HD graphics and sound with a new way to experience entertainment. Here's hoping for continued support and updates to come soon.I would recommend this to a friend
