My kids love the Nintendo Wii U


Wii U (1)

For the past month my family has been playing around with the Nintendo Wii U.  It seriously is one of the best game consoles that I have ever played with! (And I still remember when my Uncle brought home the original Nintendo!)

The Wii U is very simple to set up! In the box comes with everything you need to start playing! All the cords and includes the NintendoLand game as well!

The Wii U™ GamePad controller removes the traditional barriers between you, your games, and your TV by creating a second window into the video game world. It incorporates a 6.2-inch, 16:9 aspect ratio LCD touch screen, as well as traditional button controls and two analog sticks.

The GamePad also includes motion control, a front-facing camera, a microphone, stereo speakers, rumble features, a sensor bar, a stylus, and support for Near Field Communication (NFC). It is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and weighs approximately 1.1 pounds.


There are so many ways to play the Wii U and it just depends on the game you are playing.

Ways include:

  • Playing the game on the GamePad alone
  • Viewing the game on TV and the GamePad
  • Using the GamePad touch screen to control game play on the TV (like the Arrow game on wario)
  • Holding the GamePad virtually (like in skiing)
  • Controling the Wii U GamePad with the Stylus
  • Using Wii Remote controllers with the GamePad (up to 5 players)

Every Wii U console comes packed with an array of applications to enjoy the day you bring your system home, after a quick system update. Interact with other Wii U players online, make video calls from your TV, download full games from the comfort of your couch, and much more.

The Wii U also plays all Wii Games, so if you upgrade from the Wii you can still use your old games.

  1. That sounds really cool. I have not personally seen the Wi U yet. I like the original Wi a lot thought. Thanks for the review and details. I am sure my kids would love it. I will have to show them this and ask about it.
