ABOUT ME

The Nintendo Wii u is a video game console by Nintendo and released on November 2012.  The Wii U is the first Nintendo console to support HD graphics. The system's primary controller is the Wii U GamePad, which features an embedded touchscreen, and combines directional buttons, analog sticks, and action buttons.  The game can be played directly on the Gamepad independently of the television.  The Wii U is backward compatible with all Wii software and accessories - games can support any combination of the GamePad, Wii RemoteNunchukBalance Board, or Nintendo's more traditionally designed Classic Controller or Wii U Pro Controllerfor input. Online functionality centers around the Nintendo Network platform and Miiverse, an integrated social networking service which allows users to share content in game-specific communities.  Wii has a 1.2GHZ tri core and 2GB DDR3 memory.  It has a internal flash memory of 8GB for basic set or 32 GB for deluxe set.  The Wii has 2 main components: the Gamepad displays a home screen consisting of a grid with shortcuts to games and apps, while the television screen displays a lobby used by other users.  To play video game the user must enter the Wii mode.  Pressing the controller's "Home" button suspends the current game or app and opens the Home Menu: it shows basic information (such as the current time, controller battery levels, and notifications), and allows access to several "multitasking" functions, including the Nintendo eShop, Miiverse, download manager, a web browser,[109] and the user's friends list.  The Wii U uses the Nintendo Network platform for online services (replacing the friend code system of the Wii), enabling online multiplayer, downloading and purchasing games or apps via Nintendo eShop, video chat using the GamePad's camera and the Wii U Chat service, and other services. Up to twelve accounts can be created per console.   The Wii U supports online video services through apps, such as Amazon VideoCrunchyrollHuluNetflix, and YouTube.  The Wii U does not support playback of DVD or Blu-ray Disc.  Wii U games can be downloaded digitally through Nintendo eShop, or at retail on physical media.  Retail copies of Wii U games are distributed on high density optical disk developed by Panasonic and is like  Blue ray disk with capacity of 25GB per layer.  Unlike previous Nintendo consoles, game manuals are only available digitally.
