A little while ago, the video game company Nintendo came out with a revolutionary game system called the Wii. Since then, many companies started to make knock-offs of the Wii, but have failed. After the initial craze over the Wii died down, more and more people swapped out their Wiis for Xboxes and Playstations, mostly due to the fact that the Wii’s games are primarily party games, not fps (first person shooters).
But now,in 2012, Nintendo is making a new Wii console… the Wii U! But the question is, should you get it?
The Wii U is basically a Wii, but with different controllers, better graphics, more fps games, and the controller has a screen on it. There are 2 versions, the regular Wii U ($299.99), and the Wii U deluxe ($349.99), which comes with Nintendo Land, and more storage.
The Wii U has a new home page, which is very neat, it has Miis running around under game titles, and they comment about the game, saying real things that people posted like: I just saw my friend as a zombie… so sad. Another cool new feature on the Wii U is that on the Wii U controller, called a gamepad, is a feature similar to Skype where you can video chat with people. A fun thing about the video chatting is that you can call people with only the gamepad, so you can be talking while watching the same tv show and things like that.
The Wii U gamepad looks sort of hard to get used to,it shows the same image as what is on the tv, which I feel would give me a sense of double vision, but I don’t know.
Even with all those new features, I am not sure if I want to get the Wii U. I personally feel that it was only made to compete with the high graphics of other game systems, and to have more fps games, but it is up to you.
