The basic package costs about 300 euros and includes, as its name suggests, the basics to play with Wii U, ie white console with 8 GB of capacity and over. There is also a Premium version, with a price of around 350 euros, which includes, in addition to black color console with 32 GB capacity and command, the video game Nintendo Land, and support for command charging base and the possibility of create an account "Premium" for digital content that Nintendo has prepared for its new console.
A double sensation addresses us as we get to the console. At first while you connect the console and prepare everything for your first game could give us the feeling of connecting a new Wii, with a different command, but not until we get down to the controls with the console on and enjoy a game when totally different game experience, the result of gameplay featuring the controller.
Super Mario Bros. U, U and Nintendo Zombie Land are the games that we choose to introduce the new Nintendo console, in addition to get by far, the three manage to make us quickly with the remote control and enjoy in a way never before view on a home console to use. After the first games, the console stops feeling very good and makes us think about the future holds for the console considering that this is only the beginning.
Technical specifications and connectivity
This is a hardware that has given much to talk about, that has divided opinion among gamers seeking a graphic section "at the height of a new generation" and those who bet on gameplay and more complete gaming experience. Beyond the debate, the console is a technical advance both its predecessor and for the other consoles on the market. So, the console includes a processor created by IBM and an ATI Radeon HD posed technical base of the console. The console also has different USB ports, SD card slot, HDMI port and wireless connectivity, with the possibility of using a network cable if you buy the USB adapter is necessary for that purpose.
The command also has its own specifications, based on its variety of sensors, peripherals, display, and connectivity. Accelerometer, gyroscope, microphone, camera and all buttons will be distributed as principal of this command, to say nothing of its touchscreen , of which more later. Connectivity comes on the heels of an infrared sensor, the Nintendo Network connector and bluetooth, enough to use the various accessories that come with time or the controller itself and the last Wii to connect to the console with the least possible delay and without colliding with other Bluetooth devices.
One of the few controls that requires its own section on analysis of a console, for all the attention since its introduction has grabbed the knob the screen that closely resembles a tablet. Fairly light and connected by Bluetooth to the console, the Wii U GamePad has everything you need to connect the traditional with the new game, with the help of a touch screen and incorporates sensors and tools inside.
The control screen is 6.2 inches in widescreen, with controls on the sides of it. The screen technology and allows control without processors or graphics cards, be able to play everything the console sees fit without any delay, from transferring the scene of the game in control and able to use it without the TV as complementary information panel data as a minimap, inventory, or more generally, and even expand the possibilities of the touch panel with the tools that can contribute.
No doubt the main innovation that brings Wii U to any gamer is the control and gameplay featuring a hybrid of classic and what is to come. Already seen how the gameplay with two screens with Nintendo DS and all its family, but his system applied to consoles is a very different experience, because the touch command captures all the attention in most of the games we play with her.
Comfort and Performance
The performance can be measured only with games that have prepared different companies (and prepare) for Wii U, and every title that we play will look significantly without any performance issues. Regarding other consoles, you have to say no it shows a graphic section very different from other existing consoles, so we'll see more titles to consider all the possibilities offered by the console. Think also that this is a console that, in most cases, works two screens at once (the TV and the remote), and fulfilled without any problems, so we can say that performance is more than fair.
For the comfort one can only say that the command can be a little big and gain control costs, but because it is lightweight and ergonomic design is really comfortable and easy to play with her from the start. There will be a time when control will dominate hybrid touchscreen and physical buttons and allow us to enjoy any game coming to Wii U whether using only analog buttons as you use the touch screen only or both.
While price can do something high for some pockets, it is a console that could survive with our TV even more than the almost veteran Wii. Besides the console comes at a key moment (dates prior to Christmas) along with a number of games (many of which have already become flagship Wii U, like New Super Mario Bros U), which could make it perfectly in the ideal gift for any fan of Nintendo gamer and all its most classic sagas, some of which are available from the time when the console goes on sale.
We also noticed the effort given by Nintendo to broaden its range of games with its new console, bringing different franchises such as Assassin's Creed or Batman with new forms of gameplay.'s New franchises also take place, including cutting adult as Zombie U , Ubisoft's hand. Thus, both the audience and the casual gamer, both younger and older players may enjoy all the games that Nintendo prepares to Wii U.
Overall, this is a console that no fan should miss Nintendo, nor those seeking a totally new and different gameplay to the already seen on consoles.'s Catalog of games will not be a problem and there from the first day for everyone, not to mention what is to come. Wii U is Nintendo's commitment to continue the legacy of Wii but in order to please both casual players and the more traditional, and does more than . Failing to see the future of Sony and Microsoft bets, if you give more importance to the gameplay or innovation compared to the last technical section, Wii U console could be looking to make the leap to the next generation of consoles desktop.
