Honestly Wii U has one of, if not, the best internet browsers I’ve ever used on a video game console. Below is a short demo of how the internet browser works on the Wii U between the Wii U Gamepad and your television.
I actually went to my friends house to check it out, can honestly say that i was very impressed with what i saw, and yea, the browser is pretty awesome.
I absolutely love the Wii U browser. Its very fast and works amazing with the gamepad and tv.
it doesnt support flash............... = useless 2 me my ps3 browser is alil slow sometimes but it singlehandedly let the ps3 pay for itself literally
Can't download anything to the hard drive either which is a huge hindrance in my opinion.
Haha what a disaster, no flash no downloads. Oh well its a closed platform, cant blame it.
Not supporting Flash is a good thing, it uses stupid amounts of memory and is so unstable it almost laughable. Most people are opting for HTML5 over Flash these days and in the next few years Flash will become obsolete.
@oaks in I know what you mean I dropped cable all together when I got my ps3 lol
Forget about flash geez its old crap that needs to die.
go read up on the wii us browser cell phones can excess more of the internet then this thing can its restricted whats the point of it being fast if it cant do anything that would take advantage of its speed? im not trying to bash it but i dont see any real use for it
Being able to watch YouTube videos on the fly on the big screen is very useful.
That's because a lot of smartphones are built with browsing in mind because more people use phones to go online than games consoles. Games consoles are built with gaming in mind with everything else just a nice addition. The way it should be.
Looks great, much better than my ps3 browser that's for sure.
It's almost as good as any PC browser I've used but it is a bummer that it doesnt offer add on support. However I havent been to a site yet where that was an issue except for playing apps on FB but my guess is free flash games are the reason flash isnt supported
Most of those flash games on FB etc. won't use flash in the next few years don't worry.
hmm, zynga on miiverse?
Seen the browser and its blazing fast faster than anything out there it loads videos in a blink.
look i use my ps3 2 watch tv movies and stream live sports i watched ufc saturday on my ps3 browser for free thats all im saying if wii u can do that thats kool y am i using my ps3 like a pc atm?my anti virus is used up so my pc is off limits
