The Wii U, Nintendo’s new console. The Wii U is the start of the next generation of consoles. With it Nintendo finally brings H-D graphics to their console. It also introduces the Nintendo gamepad. This handy controller has a decent-size screen in the middle of it like a tablet, but that’s we’re comparisons end. The gamepad unlike a tablet has dual analog sticks, a directional pad, plenty of buttons, and a grip on the back with two trigger. It also serves as a remote control, like a Wii Remote. The Wii U will still use Wii controllers, but along with the gamepad. The gamepad generally controls a “special” character in a game, while the Wii controllers are regular characters in a multiplayer game. The Wii U itself looks much more like an Xbox 360 than a Wii. There is a very large line up of games for the Wii U, varying from Mario and Nintendo classics, to popular shooters and platformers of other consoles. The Wii U comes out this Christmas season and is definitely something to look forward to.
