Nintendo's new home console - 'Wii U'.

Every console comes with a 'Nintendo Gamepad' which has a 6.2" touch screen controller included,this will open up new and unique gameplay opportunities as well as allowing for 'off screen play' (someone else can watch TV while you play the console on it's controller), it will also be used in local MP games (Two player Black Ops 2 for instance, both players can play with one player using the main TV while the other uses the Tablet controller to play the game on it's screen).

All Wii U consoles are fully backwards compatible with all original Wii games and most accessories.

Every Wii U console will come with Miiverse, Nintendo TVii, Nintendo Eshop, Video chat (console to console), an Internet Browser and 100% free online gaming.

I decided on a very boring conventional thread title.

My body was not ready for this thread title :(.

Also, I hate Ness for ruining my chances for the final post ;).

If we get to a third thread I will take suggestions and pick the best one,but this title is like Ronseal " it does exactly what it says on the tin "

I was going to post a link to a 'I feel just like a purple Pikmin' meme ;(.

Anyway never mind all that have you had a go on Pikmin 3 yet Nessy ?

Posted on 24 Jul 2013 17:17:15 BDT
So regarding Pikmin 3. Has anyone actually seen an advert for it yet? Or is Nintendo not planning to advertise another game in the UK and expect it to do well?

It seemed to fly by today.

" UK Gamers Can Download Pikmin 3 Now By Picking Up A Code From GAME

Redeem the code for an early Pikmin fix

Pikmin 3 will be available to buy from stores or download from the Wii U eShop this Friday in Europe but eager players in the UK can get hold of it sooner as GAME is selling and distributing eShop codes right now.

It was thought the code would only be able to be redeemed at midnight on Friday but should you tap it in the game will start to download, which is very nice indeed.

So if you really cannot wait any longer for Pikmin 3 you can grab it right now for 34.99 (compared with 39.99 direct from the eShop). There's also an extra incentive with the download version as by choosing this method you'll be eligible to pick up the digital adaptation of The Wonderful 101 at a reduced price when it emerges.

If you're still on the fence about getting this one, check out our Pikmin 3 review to find out more. "

I will have my copy tomorrow so I am not that fussed.

Nessy,

I missed this comment and by now you have probably been on Pikmin 3 for a while now,ask me if I am bothered ;)

Nessy says:
Played the first 90 mins there, pretty amazing even though I'm a Pikmin noob :).

I was going to use Motion Plus for it but my sensor bar wasn't set up so I just used the Gamepad and the controls are really good on it so I will probably just stick to using that.

Visuals are really nice except the jaggies (it started as a Wii game so I will forgive them that) and the whole thing has the usual Nintendo charm to it which makes it really unique.

It's very addictive but I'm going to try and limit myself to a couple of hours a day as I don't want to complete it too fast :p.

Overall very pleased and more than worth the wait !.

I bet you'd be singing a different tune if Konami ported an MGS game to the Wii U and made good use of the Gamepad ;)

All it'll take is one word from Kojima for it to happen. Infact the console is on his radar, just he's not interested in it yet.

Let's have a wink off!! ;);););)

I was thinking, why haven't they ported Minecraft to the Wii U? They've done most other platforms now. It'd be a great game to use with the Gamepad too.

Microsoft have it as a console timed exclusive. I don't know how long that exclusivity period is though.
