Nintendo Wii U Basic Pack
NIN1013 - Nintendo Wii U Console 8GB Memory - Basic Pack White
Out on 30/11/2012
Wii U is a brand new home videogame console from Nintendo that fundamentally changes the relationship between you and your TV and how you, your friends and family all connect. It's a powerful, high definition system with an extraordinary new controller that redefines the dynamic of playing games together: the Wii U GamePad.
Miiverse is a brand new network communication system that lets gamers from around the world share experiences, discuss games and discover new content.
Using their personalised Mii character, players enter Miiverse and see games, applications or entertainment content that either they have interacted with recently, expressed interest in learning more about or that their friends are using or discussing.
From here they can challenge their friends to play together, ask a question about a difficult level or discover new elements of their favourite games they never knew existed. After a notable achievement or other share-worthy moment, players can pause their game or application and seamlessly post messages to the Miiverse community.
The Wii U GamePad may also function as an infrared TV Remote, whether users are watching TV or playing a game.
Near Field Communication (NFC)
The Wii U GamePad has the ability to communicate wirelessly with objects that are held above it. This allows for a variety of interesting new possibilities for games and activities.
The digital storefront for Wii U will be available at launch and offer a variety of content for people to download and enjoy. Consumers will also be able to purchase and download select games that are also available at retail stores.
There are plenty of ways to discover new games on Nintendo eShop: you can watch trailers, view charts based on popularity, or search for games using a variety of search filters.
Nintendo is working with other partners to bring video experiences to Wii U that will take advantage of the integrated second-screen experience. Additional details will be released at a later time.
Using the built-in camera of the Wii U GamePad, people can communicate with other Wii U owners in real time.
Wii U comes with a browser that lets people with a wireless Internet connection surf the Internet from the comfort of their couches. Using the simple controls on the Wii U GamePad, it's possible to display your favourite web pages on the TV to share with family and friends, or just browse the web on the GamePad without using the TV. You can even use the browser when you are in the middle of a game!
