Wii U Experience

Rate this Entry
I just got some amazing news. Nintendo has invited me to come check out the Wii U in Seattle on September 7th. I am really excited to get a hands on preview for their new console which is set to launch this holiday season. The invitation is RSVP only and I am allowed to take 3 people with me. This will be my first event like this I attend. Hopefully I will be able to score some sweet prizes and try out all out the games. In case you have no idea what the Wii U is, here is a brief description from Wiki along with the official web page from Nintendo:

The Wii U is an upcoming video game console by Nintendo and will be the successor to the Wii. The system was unveiled during Nintendo's press conference at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2011 on June 7, 2011, and is expected to be released during the fourth quarter of 2012 in North America, Europe, Australia, and Japan. It will be the first entry in the eighth generation of video game consoles.

The Wii U features a new controller, called the Wii U GamePad, with an embedded touchscreen. The controller allows a player to continue playing certain games by displaying the game even when the television is off. At the E3 2012 expo, a second controller, called the Pro Controller, was unveiled, which is a more traditional gamepad. It features two analog sticks.
The system will be backward compatible with Wii, and Wii U games can support compatibility with Wii peripherals, such as the Wii Remote Plus and the Nunchuk. It will not be backward compatible with Nintendo GameCube discs or peripherals, although games can be purchased and downloaded from Nintendo's Virtual Console service.
