Attention, all gamers! Nintendo has announced the Wii video game system's successor, the Wii U. The Nintendo Wii U will be released on November 18 in the United States with two versions. Gamers can purchase the Wii U with one controller for $299 or a deluxe version that comes with more memory, a gamepad charger, a stand, and a video game.

One of the biggest changes to this system, compared to the Wii, is the dual screen capability. Besides playing on a regular-sized television, gamers also have a handheld device with a 6.2 inch touchscreen, providing an enhanced multiplayer mode. It also allows gamers to continue playing solely on the handheld device in the event they can't use their TV.

According to Nintendo, there will be 50 Wii U game titles available by March, including "Assassin's Creed III" and "Call of Duty." For years, Nintendo has been criticized for appealing only to families and children, as opposed to all ages, but the Wii U looks like it will silence those complaints. In addition to better graphics, memory, and interactivity, the Wii U will also provide Nintendo TVii, allowing users to stream and record shows via YouTube, Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, and more.

    I may get it a year or so after the price comes down. I stay behind the curve of technology and easily save 30% and more on purchasing electronic gizmos.

  • jester 2012/10/01 15:55:23
    Dunno really, the hanheld thing of the WiiU looks like an upside down PS Vita... I already have PS 3, 3DS, Vita, GB Color, N64, PSP and my GameCube... Wii was a letdown... Really don´t know...
  • critter171 jester 2013/01/02 02:47:26
    first off its called a game pad and its not a handheld and secondly its not teh same thing as ps vita you cant compre old console to knew ones. the best thing to do is look at game list coming and out and decide that way.
  • JessDeCristo 2012/10/01 10:05:33

  • Paranormal♥Spirit 2012/09/28 14:07:44
    I want to play it first before I think about buying it. Gaming is so expensive now. I really want to play that Zombi U game.

    Ok first off know there not and more power does not make a console. In fact that teh stupids argument i ever heard of. you want power the pc is teh choice. the fact that Nintedno save the video game indursty you wouldn't have a sony if it was not for Nintendo than without sony ms would of never been here. the video game crash would of never came back. Not to mention NIntendo had change plenty of things. lets see the history of Nintendo.

    nes- very stricts guidelines for third parties to follow ab, d-pad button d-pad work very well.

    snes- shoulder buttons added to controller also x,y added and some decent games on third party.

    n64-control stick- not that nintendo invited but implaented into a gaming machine and goldeneye prove it could work. so in that theory this happen later on in ps1 life

    ps1- added two control sticks

    Cube- made wireless more common for controller (wavebird) rumble

    Wii- a new way to play video games with a wii remote controller with a twist of which and got improve.

    Wii u- another way to add to experience of gaming hd, grapchis better grapchis your bitching about. etc...

    What did the others really do not much at all

    ps2- the system that was least powerful won
    wii-the system least power won

    sony-ps3-copied wii remote and called it "moved"
    xbox 360- made kicent- and could work better.

    Calm down there big boy, don't pop a blood vessel. I don't really care what it is. Nintendo hasn't had anything great since Gamecube.
  • critter171 Heavy Six 2013/11/14 19:41:47
    That an opinion not a fact.
  • Mud 2012/09/26 00:13:55
    the what?
  • NickTheAceBassist 2012/09/24 00:04:05
    I wish you "hardcore" gamers would stop complaining about how Nintendo products today suck. Nintendo always been more about making gaming more family friendly not so that you can sit there and play a Call of Duty for six months then ignore it. That's why most of there games are E...
