What sets the Wii U apart from current consoles?

OmniGamer Writes "What will the Wii U give to gaming that the Xbox 360 and PS3 haven’t already? Nintendo’s new console
is right around the corner, the Wii U is a high definition graphic console. This means that games like
Metroid, Mario bros, and one of my favorite series The Ledgend of Zelda, will finally be in 1080p High definition."

I'm having trouble believing that the Wii U will be a high definition graphic console.

Saying it will be in 1080p does not mean anything if the graphics are not good to begin with.

Still, if Nintendo is finally making graphics a priority, I'm more than happy to come HOME... I miss you Nintendo!

Oh prodigal son, please come home..lol. But seriously, the WiiU is only in launch phase. Of course we will see better graphics as the console matures and developers start pushing it. But games like Pikmin 3 already look great (even only in e3 demo form) and it's going to get better. We haven't even seen Bayonetta 2 yet..

I for one am glad to be interested in something different. Sony and MS can't just build the same exact machines with better specs and expect the same results they each got this generation. They both better make something that has it's own unique selling points because the days of people buying mutiple consoles that share so many of the same games is growing thin.

That's not true,at least with Sony, because they wanted to make games not possible on the ps2 and what is confusing with the wii is,nintendo themselves didn't have game that use the wiimote properly and your complaint of what you don't like about the ps360 is what nintendo did until the wii.

Nintendo never said graphics were a priority..... If they did that I for one wouldnt be buying their games any more.

krazykombatant1852d ago

If the wii u can churn out zelda games like the one shown in the picture, why do you need more of an excuse to get it.

AmazingBrian1852d ago

High Definition =/= Realistic graphics...

Nintendo games are much more like art as opposed to realism that PS3 and Xbox games mostly go for. Nintendo does make graphics a priority, but they aren't looking for realism. Your post is dumb

-Better hardware than every other console on the market
-More RAM allowing more headroom for multitasking and bigger games
-Tablet controller with a touch screen, a new style of game play
-It begins a new generation of console gaming, you can go on and on

Its hardware is a bit better than what we have,more ram that is sucked up by the tablet which may not allow it to reach full potential because of the tablet as for new way of playing,it seems like it could go either way,being better than the wiimote or not changing much from the wiimote.

Zebramocha, Why are you acting like you know the specs of the Wii U when every here knows you dont. Everything in your post is just BS you pulled out of thin air.

Never read anything about the gamepad sucking up all the RAM either...

It's funny that some people are so threatened by a piece of plastic that they spend their time making stuff up in some lame attempt to play it down..

I'm sorry but its clear to anyone with tech knowledge that Wii U is superior to current gen consoles.

@Captain Qwark, They just announced you will sign up for an account online and that future Nintendo products will use the service and you'll be able to use your PC or Phone to access your account online.

Each system can have up to 12 accounts.
E-shop was confirmed long ago.
If you really wanted to know I'm sure you would have by now. Everything you posted has already been covered

wow looks like some rejects just came in here to disagree with the obvious fact that nintendo finally has the superior hardware.......get a life people it's all the same games without the different consoles.

although this guy takes the cake for the most clueless person on the planet when it comes to what nintendo really stands for in the gaming community.

does anyone know how it handles online yet? does it have a gamertag/friend/ach.-trophy system/marketplace/etc or is it just another half *ssed system like the wii?????

^^^^^thats the deal breaker for me. if it does have a nice online model then count me in, if not then im going to pass this time around. ive been far too disappointed in the cube and wii in the past to get suckered into another nintendo system purchase

Good news! No Friend Codes :)

From what I understand, not only do you just use a single Nintendo Network ID to add friends, but you can also add new people you meet in Miiverse.

Ummm.....its new!

It's a brand new next-gen console, that's why.
