Nintendo Wii U: Yeah, it’s Not Just a New Controller, Guys!

Ever since the Nintendo Wii U was first announced at E3 last year, people everywhere have been confused on quite a few major details.  Lots of people think it’s just a new controller for the Wii, which is obviously false if you pay attention to gaming news.  Just to clarify for all of you readers, the Nintendo Wii U is a new system that is slated for a release later this year, and will support 4 Wii U Pro Controllers (or Wii Remotes), and up to two Wii U GamePads (also the Wii Balance Board and Wiimote accessories).  Games for Wii U will be able to run in up to 1080p HD, and are rumored to look better than PS3 or 360 in some cases.  There is no set release date for this new system yet, but I’m guessing it will be around Sept.-Nov.  Expect to hear about the price and release date of the Wii U in the coming weeks.  Did this answer your questions? -Greg Boe (admin)

    Haha, it’s funny that lots of people don’t just read up on a new system before bashing it to the ground! Thanks for clarifying this subject
