The Wii U U is a console which has spiked great controversy from critics and gamers alike. People have been questioning every aspect of it. Right from the touchscreen built into the controller, to the not-so-hifi hardware configuration.
But we all know, Nintendo is a company which has shocked us before. Weak hardware has been backed with a slew of epic games, which has propelled the sales of Nintendo’s consoles to levels which have set a benchmark for the competition.
Wii U Launch/Release Date
The Wii U has been released on 18th Novemeber in North America, and will be releasing on 30th November across the globe, save Japan, which will have to wait until 8th December for the Launch of the Wii U.
Wii u has been picked up by many reliable sources and the over all reception of the console is quite positive.
The Wii u has a hardware configuration which is at par with today’s generation. This may sound like a good thing, but we also must take into consideration the fact that the Wii U is not competing against the PS3 and Xbox 360, but its inevitable successors.

Add to this the fact that you can increase the memory of the Wii U by attaching either a flash-based drive or a standard external hard drive.
