I was excited when Wii came out 6 years ago, and was even more excited when they announced WiiU last year. If you missed the E3 show this year, you missed all of the excitement behind the Wii U. Nintendo has been known to market games that appeal to the younger generation. With the WiiU, they really are making something that appeals to everyone. From Mario games, to shooters like Mass Effect 3. The graphics look really good which should rope in a lot of gamers who think it's the most important thing. As for the system hardware, there is nothing like it. having a tablet with game controls, and a touch screen is genious. The only thing that would make it better is if you could take it outside of the house. That would probably pull away from 3ds sales though, and I am sure they though of that. The WiiU should be available this 2012 holiday season. From Nintendo's Website. Size Approximately 1.8 inches high, 10.5 inches deep and 6.8 inches long. Weight Approximately 3.41 pounds (1.5 kg). Wii U™ GamePad The Wii U GamePad™ controller removes the traditional barriers between games, players and the TV by creating a second window into the video game world. It incorporates a 6.2-inch, 16:9 aspect ratio LCD touch screen, as well as traditional button controls and two analog sticks. Inputs include a +Control Pad, L/R sticks, L/R stick buttons, A/B/X/Y buttons, L/R buttons, ZL/ZR buttons, Power button, HOME button, -/SELECT button, +/START button, and TV CONTROL button.

It is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and weighs approximately 1.1 pounds (500 g).

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.

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.

Nov 7, 2010 marks the day of the red Wii, and Dsi XL. The Wii arrives with two games (Super Mario Bros, and Wii Sports), and also a new Wii remote Plus controller. No more purchasing wii motion plus to stick in the bottom. The specs will still be the same, but it's all in red and limited so if you want one, you better be fast. The new DSi XL comes with special artwork, Mario Kart DS, and three built in titles. These are going to be colloctor's items for sure. I might have to buy two of them.

Come May 9th, lines are going to be long in hopes of grabbing a black Nintendo Wii gaming console. It's sleek black finish, on the poster in Gamestop had me drooling for a few minutes. If you already have a white one, it's no big deal. You can preorder at Gamestop, and trade in your old one. You would only pay $50 towards a new black Wii. This time around, the Wii console will come with Wii Sports Resort, a black Wii controller, and Wii Motion Plus. This is in addition to the original Wii sports game. I have one of the very first Wii consoles, so I may just keep it for a collector's item. I definately want a black one though. Good luck on May 9th because these are going to sell out just as quick as they hit the shelf.

It was like seeing all white at a institution. Not long ago, Nintendo released black remotes, which had a cool stealth look to them, but now we can have even more color. You can choose blue or pink to add to your collection. I am sure they will be releasing more color choices in the near future. Just be on the lookout to get yours first.

One of those things is play dvd's. I can't really share that information, but if you love movies and have a Netflix membership, you can start streaming your movies over to your Wii console. If you don't have a membership, you can always sign up. This will ad to the list of cool things the Wii can already do making it one of the greatest gaming consoles ever.

So I figure Id stick with them. My latest love, My Shape! It comes with a webcam, that monitors your movements and makes sure your in sync with the Virtual Jenny McCarthy. It gives you help on certain moves when you need it, and trust me you will. lol. I haven't actually used it in a workout routine yet, but my test run at home was entertaining and did give me a workout. So Im excited to try it out. It scans your body, makes a model of you and allows for customized workouts. Haven't noticed any cons, but like i said I have only used it once, so far.
