Discover a wealth of exciting new ways to enjoy home entertainment with Wii U, Nintendo's next home console. With a revolutionary new touch screen controller, precision motion controls, and full HD graphics, a whole new world of play styles and gaming possibilities is on the horizon. The time is coming to truly expand your idea about what a game console is - and can be. The system launches in 2012 and includes the new Wii U console and amazing new controller.
Wii U Console: Premium pack includes:
A New Wii Console Experience:
According to Nintendo President Satoru Iwata, "Wii U redefines the structure of home entertainment by fundamentally changing how the TV, the game console and the Internet function and interact together", he continues, "The experience enabled by Wii U and its new controller takes players deeper into their games, while reaching out wider than ever before to be inviting to all kinds of gamers".
Wii U combines motion-sensing gameplay with the ability to support full HD graphics. Each Wii U console will be paired with a new groundbreaking controller, with its 6.2-inch wide screen. Previously, video games played on home consoles have been confined to the TV and offered identical viewpoints to each player in a multiplayer environment. The Wii U controller enhances that experience with different viewpoints available in-game and in differing games/game situations. Also, watching TV and playing console games have been completely separate experiences. The new controller removes these boundaries, creating a more dynamic and fluid gaming and entertainment experience.
Within Single Player Games:
While in-game, the new controller can display information on its screen that does not appear on the TV. The information and viewpoint can also change in the new controller based on the orientation of its gyroscope.
Within Multiplayer Games:
The player using the new controller can have a different experience than those looking at the TV creating a wider variety of competitive and cooperative opportunities.
The New Controller
In addition to its 6.2-inch screen, the new controller also features an accelerometer and a gyroscope, a rumble feature, an inward-facing camera, a microphone and speakers. Adding these features to the Classic Controller button scheme -- two analogue Circle Pads, +Control Pad, A/B/X/Y buttons, L/R buttons and ZL/ZR buttons -- will enable a breadth of gameplay experiences while appealing to both casual and dedicated video game players. The Wii U system can also use up to four additional Wii Remote or Wii Remote Plus controllers and is backward compatible to all Wii games and all Wii accessories. The Wii console has sold more than 86 million units globally and greatly expanded the overall audience for video games. Wii U aims to expand that audience even further.

A truly brilliant game console, gamepad is light and comfortable, I've always loved nintendo consoles but I was very let down by the wii but nintendo has got it 100% right with the wii u. Excellent.
The Wii U Console is fantastic. Its controller alone is a masterpiece, it's very comfortable and impressively designed, making games so much more interactive than before. The console itself again is pushing things forward, with the miiverse being a great social gathering for gamers to hang out and discuss their favourite titles, help with bosses or to post fan art. And all this before you start playing any games. I would recommend the Wii U to anyone who loved the Wii, and to all who wanted more.
Wii U Console: 32GB Nintendo Land Premium Pack is great, purely for the fact that I can play games on the gamepad while the girlfriend watches rubbish TV. That feature alone makes this an essential purchase!
The Wii U Console: 32GB Nintendo Land Premium Pack is an amazing console that's worth every penny. Nintendo land is an outstanding game that perfectly demonstrates the use of the game pad in the time to come. I can't wait to see what they do with it!
I love it! I bought the Wii U because I am a big fan of Zelda and Mario games and I liked the idea of using the GamePad with the screen. I've been enjoying the Zelda Battle Quest game on Nintendo Land. The only downside at the moment is that the loading times can be quite annoying. I hope these are sorted out with a future update. The Wii U is a powerful console, so I don't see why the loading times are as bad as they currently are. Overall I enjoy playing the Wii U, and I do like the operating system, I just think it needs to be a bit faster, which hopefully will be improved soon!
