This is the Wii 2., 9 Mar 2014
Nintendo, Sega, Playstation, Xbox, I've tried them all over the last 25 years.
I've liked them all. But I always go back to Nintendo. The Wii U allows for all the family fun that the original Wii did, but it also adds a more hardcore element for real experienced gamers.
The Wii U allows the use of wii pad (with screen), the WII U pro controller (for experience xbox and playstation players) and original wii and nunchuck controls. You can't go wrong with this machine.
There are some fantastic games that you just can't get on other machines. The visuals are not that far behind the xbox1 and ps4, and to be honest I don't know why anyone would choose the best graphics as substitute for access to some of the best games that are about.
You've got your Netflix, love film, youtube, google maps, internet, social gaming platform, ability to download indie games.
Its true that Nintendo have lost developers due to poor sales of this machine, but I suspect the poor sales are not indicative of the quality of this console. I whole heartedly recommend getting this machine. Its cheaper, its fun, its compact in size. The controllers are absolute delight and it caters for family and experienced gamers.
