Nintendo Re-Joins Video Game Battle

Japanese gaming giant, Nintendo has joined in the race to be the ultimate gaming console provider. Nintendo introduced the Wii U at their most recent E3 conference. The Nintendo Wii U is different from conventional video games in very many ways, which will begin to tell you about.

The Nintendo Wii U has joined in on high definition gaming, boasting a 1080p output from an HDMI enabled port. The first Wii console was unable to compete with the other consoles in the market on the graphics level because of its lack of high definition display. It still has its disc drive which will play old Wii console discs and new 12-centimeter proprietary high-density optical discs made for the Wii U console. The Wii U will also have internal flash memory of unspecified quantity which will be expandable via SD card or external USB 2.0


The most interesting new feature about the Wii U is its ability to let you continue gaming even after the console is switched off – how?

The Wii U comes with a console and a portable 6.2-inch touchscreen handheld device that could be used to play separately from the television, when it’s needed for other purposes. The touchscreen handheld has a built in front facing cam that will let you video chat from anywhere, two analog sticks on its left and right, and all the regular buttons that Nintendo consoles have. And the regular Wii controllers will also work on the Wii U, allowing more people to play at the same time on the console. The video below will give you a better look and understanding of the Wii U.


The Wii U is scheduled for release sometime in 2012 and is the first of its kind; the same way it was the first to bring motion gaming to the industry. Will other gaming companies follow in its wake? Or will Nintendo completely dominate this market? Tell us what you think below.
