Wii U Better Than Ever and a Great Christmas Present
Nintendo’s new Wii console has been given a release date for North America, November 18th 2012. The Wii U price is $299 for the basic version or 349.99 for the deluxe version which will have 32GB memory, Wii U consol Stand and Charging cradle and Nintendo land for Wii U. The standard version comes with just 8GB of memory. Both versions will come with an HDMI cable. This will be Christmas 2012’s must have present
The new Wii U Will can be connected to the internet via a wireless (802.11b/g/n) connection and features four USB 2.0 connectors – two in the front & rear that support previous versions of the Wii LAN Adapters. For its audio output: it has six-channel PCM linear output via HDMI connector, or analog output via the AV Multi Out connector.
Since it has an HDMI output it will support 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i.
Don’t fear about having all these previously bought accessories and not being able to use them with the new consol, nearly all of the previous generation accessories will be compatible with the new Wii.
One of the better futures of the Wii us is the new gamepad which will allow you to keep playing games while turning off the main TV. With the addition of a 6.2 in touch screen LCD you can tell your son or daughter that the news is on and they can transfer the game to that screen and go to their room. Just like previous Wii remotes this has the motion control built in.
Two of the new Wii U game that I’m looking forward to playing is the new Wii fit U and Zelda for Wii U. As in one of my other Hubs I mentioned how I lost upwards of 20 pounds by using the Wii fit. This new addition will have what looks like a pedometer which is good for my morning runs that aren’t tracked on the current version, also with the addition of the new game pad I can work out while other shows are on TV. Happy couples can have the best of both worlds
With Zelda it is the Nintendo staple, aside from Mario of course. Adventure, puzzle solving, and heroic story lines always make playing Zelda a great time. A long time too. With the upgraded graphics and capabilities of the Wii U this new story will only be larger more in depth and visually more engaging.
Another game I would like to see migrated to the new Wii U would be Metal gear solid, back when I had playstation two this was one of my favorite games to play. Similar to Zelda in the heroic storyline and very in-depth characters and story line it presented great puzzles and tradition shooting game play, which all made for a great game. I missed out on the next additions to the storyline as I did not get a PS3. Either way I’m sure Super Mario Bros. U, Wii Fit U and Zelda U will all keep me busy and fit for the winter months until it’s time to come out of hibernation in the summer.
