Nintendo Wii U 8GB Basic Set
Wii U is really fun and has a lot of potential :D
Nintendo New Home Console Wii U is really a fun system to play with family and friends. The Games is really fun to play with the Wii U Gamepad and takes gameplay to another level. The Wii U has a lot of Good Games coming out this year, such as a 3D Mario, Mario Kart, Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD Remake and Third Party exclusive Games like The Wonderful 101. Nintendo has many surprises in store for Nintendo fans this coming year and the years beyond. I am having a great time with this System and enjoying Nintendo Games :) I highly recommend this system to anyone for any age to have massive fun with yourself, Friends and Family. Game On Everyone!!! :)
Skeptical first, then wowed.
I must admit, nintendo has outdone themselves with this system. I wasn't so sure about the Wii u, but with the assortment of games they were planning right from the beginning, I was sold. I have a rule, if a new gen system has 5 good games at the beginning, I'll get it when I can. So when purchasing it, I picked up two games to start. The gamepad doesn't last too long with battery life, but fun to use it regardless. The motion bar is back from the Wii, and works just as well, if not better than the wii version. You can play all of your old wii games on it and use all of the accessories, that is also an amazing plus to all of this. As far as I know, the other two next gens do not do that. I applaud Nintendo and the Wii U's future looks shining bright.
Great to the Core!
I very much so, love this WIIU. It's fun, and I can still play Mario games while my dad is watching TV!I also think my parents enjoy it to, because the WIIU allows you to play WII,games.
Love the Wii U
My fiancee brought me the Wii u last week and i have to say i love i have a 360 and i stop playing to give my Wii u full attention their are some gamers and critic that puts the Wii u up against the Xbox 360 and playstation 3. Graphic can be compared to the 360 and ps3 Wii u is right behind those system their are just a slight diffrent in the graphics To me he Wii U is a total different experience than the 360 and ps3 beacuse of the game pad. Yes they play all the same games but the game pad add something different makes playing games like zombi u more real like when you are going thru your backpack you take your eyes off what's going on like in real life and being able to play on the tv or the game pad is AWSOME and sometimes it looks better on the game pad. Gamers who bash the Wii U need to give the Wii u a chance have an open mind and thats coming from an Xbox freak yes games are a little buggy but it a new system and game designers need to work hard to make great games for the Wii u not just go with whats easy this system has potential tv remote, cable remote,tablet, game controller, full game on the game pad its has everything you need out the box no need spending extra money on hdmi cords remote controlls for your system so you can play your dvd or blue ray (that the only thing the wii u dont have is a blue ray player but who cares) it all in one box Sony and Microsoft take note. Stop killing gamers pockets.
GREAT JOB NINTENDO
This system is awesome! I purchased the white version of the wii u. I play Call of Duty Black Ops 2 online and it is better looking than the xbox version in my opinion. It also seems that there isn't the problems with cheating online like xbox. I was tired of playing online with my xbox because it seemed as though the cheating was getting out of hand. The pro controller actually feels better than the xbox controller too! I really hope that the 3rd party game developers get behind this system because I think it has the capability of becoming great. The gamepad has unlimited potential as well. It has a very high resolution and great color. I even played cod online on the gamepad so my wife could watch tv. xbox has a more polished user interface. what i mean is that xbox makes it easier to see ur friends list and navigate the menus faster. of course xbox has perfected thier menus over time and nintendo is fairly new to this kind of gaming experience. that being said, I love the new wii u.
This is a great gift
I got this for my girlfriend and she loves it we are just playing away rocking iron MarioU and zombieU it is awesome and will bring me and her hours of joy
Nice,but not great
It's nice,and all,but with it not being better as far as specs go it shouldn't be more then the 360 like it is.Also i don't like that you need a wii remote to use the backwards compatibility.
However if your a Monster hunter fan like me then You have to get a Wii u.Unless you want to play MH3U on 3ds which has no online play unlike the Wii u Version that does.
So far it seems to play just as well as a 360 does which is nice,but not great since WU should be better with it being a next gen console.
This is by far the best Nintendo system yet. The gamepad makes it unique, and also, with certain games, you can play the game on the gamepad while someone watches TV. The gamepad is light, not heavy, and the buttons and trigger buttons are easy to push. The touchscreen is responsive, and has no problems. Transferring save data and games you bought from the E-Shop is easy, and fun to watch, it takes a bit, so watching the Pikmin transferring the data makes it less of a pain to wait. Only problem I had is that the Wii U didn't come with the colored cables. I have an older TV that doesn't support the HDMI cable, so it was a good thing I had the Wii. So if any of you have older TV sets, make sure you get the colored cables. Either than that, this is an amazing system.
Nintendo On top Again!
This is the best Nintendo in a long time. My favorite system's are NES,SNES and now The WII U! The basic set is great I pluged my old Western Digital 500gig mini drive and it works great! The HD is perfect and you know they will have all the great nintendo games, Plus they got the third party support that they need for us Hardcore gamers. Go buy one if you like anything about Video games at all!
Awesome console for the whole family!
I received the basic Wii U for Christmas and I felt like I was 10 again on Christmas morning. This is a great system not only for hardcore gamers like myself but for the whole family as well. I am usually a hardcore Xbox 360 gamer halo 4 is my main game, but I have to admit the Wii U is surprisingly fun, and keeps me entertained. Mario and Nintendo land are instant classics, and fun for you to play solo or with the whole family. The tablet is awesome light and responsive and my favorite part is how you can watch tv but continue playing on your tablet GENIUS! This is an awesome console for the whole family the 8 GB space is not a problem because I have a 1 TB external hard drive if needed. I highly recommend this console to anybody I hope you will enjoy it as much as I am.
