The console is small in stature and only slightly larger than the Wii, the premium version has a glossy black finish while the basic version is a glossy white. It is considerably smaller than the other next gen systems at about 20% volume of the XB1 + Kinect. Both the Wii U tablet and pro pad are also very well designed, both are built to a very high glossy quality.
You also have to take into consideration that both the PS4 and XB1 are not backward compatible, and the input/output lag of the XB1 obliterates any possibility of using the 'HDMI IN' function for anything other that viewing video. The Wii U however is fully compatible with every Wii game and console accessory which opens it's software library up to well over a thousand games, many of which are considered the best of all time such as Mario Galaxy 1+2, Twilight Princess, Smash Bros Brawl and Metroid Prime Trilogy.
I paid £475 for my XB1 at launch with a bundled Fifa 14 and a separate copy of Forza 5, in the months since I've never felt so mugged off in all my life... While the PS4 and XB1 are more powerful their game libraries are very poor, even almost 1 year after their releases neither have a game worth buying the console for.
The criticisms of the Wii U always centre on two things:
The lower processing power in relation to XB1/PS4, and it's library (or lack of) games.Read more ›
The big worry is that constantly looking between screens could be annoying or distracting. But in practice, it isn't, really. Take ZombiU, the Wii game every review you read will fairly compare to the popular Left 4 Dead series, for example. It's not an especially good game from what I played--the story seems basic, and it's neither especially scary nor especially funny--but the second screen enhances it. Looking away from the screen makes things interesting when there's a brain-eating zombie coming up behind you every few minutes. That sounds annoying, but for me it upped the tension, making it more of a challenge than a distraction.
For my money, it's physically the best-looking console ever made. I tried out the deluxe version: sleek and black and nice-looking in your living room. That's not really a reason to buy it, but it doesn't hurt, if that kind of thing is important to you. Most of your old Wii games will work on it, too, and it has support for original Wii controllers.
We managed to connect it to an old style TV with and AV-Scart adapter and it works perfectly.
We bought an extra wii remote+ to avoid the frustration of waiting for a turn.
