Nintendo Wii Release Date In Europe Is November 30th

Officially announced since June, the new gaming console developed by Nintendo, the Wii U, was launched last weekend in The United States.

Nintendo Wii U was highly-anticipated by many of the fans because is the company’s first model that supports Full HD graphics, promising games and multimedia contents at 1080p. But this isn’t the only improvement from the previous model, as Nintendo tried to introduce more new features and upgrades.

In terms of technical specifications, Nintendo Wii U comes with a PowerPC processor manufactured by IBM, a GPU similar to the graphic cards belonging to ATI’s RV7xx line-up, 2 GB of RAM DDR3 used by the CPU graphic processor, but offering a bandwidth that’s almost double when compared to the previous model, with a maximum of almost 13GB/s.

Nintendo also included two WiFi modules, one for Internet and another for paring the Wii U with the new controller.

Wii U GamePad is the absolute novelty, which besides the traditional buttons we all love, adds a touchscreen display, similar to the one of the Nintendo 3DS console. The 6.2-inch display with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels (16:9 aspect ratio) can also be controlled using the stylus included in the package.

The Wii U GamePad comes with a front-facing camera, mic, volume controls, notifications LED, and the buttons used for controlling the games. The Wii U batter is supposed to get the console through 3.5 hours of gaming, while a complete recharge lasts 2.5 hours.

For those who want to stick to the classic controllers, Ninendo also sells Wii U Pro, a controller similar to the ones used by PlayStation and Xbox.

Nintendo Wii U launched along with 23 games developed for the new console, and the new Super Mario Bors is one of them. There are a total of 50 games expected to debut on the new Wii U, with Mass Effect 3, Assassin’s Creed 3, FIFA Soccer 13, Call of Duty: Black Ops and other popular titles among them.
