I really like this! Oh and it's free unlike "some" services.

This was well planned out. A great feature for Wii U.

Just put my pre-order on the Wii U.

PS4 + Wii U next-gen for me
ConstipatedGorilla  +   1121d ago
Ryo, I just did as well. I preordered one for myself and one for my brother's kids. For me, next gen will be Wii U and 720 though. I'm too invested in 360 to jump ship.

Though you still need to pay for hulu plus, Netflix, a TiVo dvr (though hope it's compatible with other dvrs) and your tv cable provider. Though a nice feature that really tries hard to make Wii-U the center of your entertainment system. Though can you watch hd tv or 3d tv on that thing? And how does it actually work?
chanmasta  +   1121d ago
So what? You expect Nintendo to pay for your Netflix and Hulu Plus subscriptions too? And yes, the Wii U has been confirmed to be able to output 3D from Iwata himself, however that won't be until the future.
ronin4life  +   1121d ago
I don't think he meant it like that chanmasta. Of course you have to pay for those things, and many here may not currently have such subscriptions(like me)

I hope it will work with DirecTv...

Hopefully it will get added later on.

This was very smart and a big jab at Apple! Just watching how intergrated the device is with sports is going to make this sell alone. I was really blown away by how in depth this part of the system is fleshed out...
donman1  +   1121d ago
I fully agree with you... Nintendo have definitely stepped out the box on this one.
GribbleGrunger  +   1121d ago
Darn it, that's smart! I've often said that I'm not sure how the sales of the Wiiu would go, but the more I'm seeing the more I'm leaning towards 'very good'. Looks like I might be getting fat on past comments lol
ronin4life  +   1121d ago
The "TV" part... they mean, like, the regular digital tv I get over the airwaves right?
I was actually pretty confused by this part... @.@
chanmasta  +   1121d ago
Yup. If you have subscriptions to other services like Netflix and Hulu Plus, it combines all of them into one guide for easy finding.

I did see some kinda OS for twitter and facebook, so I guess that's sorta cool? Nothing that really isn't done, the difference only being a controller with a screen. The biggest problem I have with this whole thing is the price.

" I was really blown away by how in depth this part of the system is fleshed out..."

That was one of the very thing's people said Nintendo needed to work on to make their online presence much better with the WiiU and it look's to be like they have done a great job going into the new system cycle in putting more investment into a more online product and services release with their new system. It looks to me Nintendo is going for changing their online direction of not really putting much emphasis on "online" to now stepping up their content for online support of product's and services.

This will bode well for Nintendo.

i must agree one of the few things that stand out for me with the wii u is this.
GanjaMan  +   1121d ago
will this also let you watch real, good sports like football, rugby, tennis etc etc or will it only let u watch rubbish sports that only north america watches, nfl aka handegg?
AngelicIceDiamond  +   1121d ago
Ok, these services are free on PSN to whats your point?
Stephen5543  +   1121d ago
Better integration. It's all in one centralized app.

Also, I can't speak for other countries, but in USA it isn't possible to watch TV through your PS3.

It's not something "amazing", but it's definitely cool that it was integrated. So far it's the best integration of watching content from TV/Movies/Sports on a home console. (and unlike Microsoft, you don't have to pay to access it)

Definitely think next gen for me will be Wii U and PS4.
TheSuperior  +   1121d ago
So cool! Now this is exciting :D
josephayal  +   1121d ago
WELL this is very nice tbh
LOL_WUT  +   1121d ago
That was awesome especially the sports part.
The_Infected  +   1121d ago
Just pre ordered it. Can't wait to play it. Aside from Nintendo TVii the launch linup is great and down the road a new 1080p Zelda, Mario, and Metroid Prime would be a dream:)

Wow! That app is going to be so convenient.
XabiDaChosenOne  +   1121d ago
*golf clap* Well played Nintendo.
Straightupbeastly  +   1121d ago
This just highlights how outdated the ps3 interface is. Thing is a joke. Nintendo may take over Sony
ronin4life  +   1121d ago
Sony is doing pretty bad, and I have only recently started to actually wonder if the possibility of "death" for them is even remotely conceivable, but I can tell you that's not gonna happen.

Unless you mean in market share and services... in which case I am currently inclined to agree.
