Nintendo – Back in action!
Nintendo has launched its newest and next-gen console the Nintendo Wii U over the weekend with the 8Gb and 32Gb versions.
Released this past Sunday with numerous launch titles including New Super Mario U and ZombieU among others.
The console comes with a hand-held gamepad featuring a very nice 16:9 touchscreen. The pro controller and older Wii remotes are usable as well.
It is expected to display current graphics, which would bring Nintendo into the world of 1080p hd for the first time. A nice plus I must say!
It will feature a AMD Radeon based High Def GPU, with a IBM Power-based multi-core microprocessor.
*Audio Output: AV Multi Out connector. Six-channel PCM linear output through HDMI.
*Video Output: 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, 480i, including a HDMI output, s-video and component as well as composite.
*Backward compatible with Wii games and accessories.
*Memory: Expandable using an SD memory card or external usb hard drive.
Prices start right at $299 USD!
The time is nearing for the next generation of consoles to be hitting shelves. We have heard a lot of chit-chat lately about one console having a development kit leak out onto the internet. The console I’m speaking of is the Xbox 720 from Microsoft. Pictures appeared on a web forum last month of a dev kit for the 720, them pictures have now been confirmed to be real after speculation of well in this case gaming fraud! As we do take this kind of news seriously.
Any-who to get started with things, the dev kit is powered by an intel processor while running a NVIDIA graphics card. It is supposedly running a 8-core cpu. Still getting dual gpu’s? we’ll just have to wait and see. Also expect blu-ray. I do believe this console will be releasing Holiday season 2013!
Not much of an update as time is scarce lately but for all the gamers out there, here you go!

No word yet on whether or not the device will be 3G or 4G capable, so keep that Wi-Fi nearby!
