November 18th 2012!

So how much will it be? Oh well only $299 for the standard edition and $349 for the delux. So that means Nintendo decided to go with a more competitive price point instead of their undercut strategy like they did with the original Wii.

– “GPGPU” used
– Main memory: 1GB
– System memory: 1GB
– Total memory is 2GB
– Games only use 1GB of main memory
– System memory is for the OS
– Can use the browser while playing
– Game discs are 25GB

Standard Version:

What About My Old Wii Games and WiiWare/Virtual Console Games?

Do not fret my friends, all of your previously purchased content will be transferable to your new and amazing Wii U. The old Wii games are also going to play on the Wii U so you can carry your entire collection over. No word on if the U will scale the old Wii games up to take advantage of the HD graphics.

 

It is time to officially get excited. Super Mario Bros U , ZombiU, and Pikmin… prepare your self. If you have any questions or comments please harass us via the comment section below.
