PlayBoxie has announced that its services are now available via the Wii U web browser. The application allows you to play a variety of free HTML 5 games on your Wii U GamePad or your TV via the web browser.
Its really a indexer than an application. It directs you to the games that work.
Anyone know of any good HTML5 games worth playing, then?
i wish i can play flash games on my wiiU, Y8.com has a good amount of it
You also can't play flash games on the 360, PS3, 3DS, iPhone, iPad, iPod and (most) Android phones. Strangely, the Wii had an extremely primitive flash player. The point is, flash is a dying breed, and a resource hog. Out off all the popular browser plugins flash crashes the most. That is why most websites are moving to HTML5, even games are being made using HTML. Flash is a dying breed. It'd be nice to have it, but it's obvious why Nintendo chose against it.
Correct except for the part on android phones. All android phones can use flash (unless it has very outdated hardware). You can no longer get flash from google play, but as on my Note 2, u just go directly through your browser and download flash from their website. Also your not up to date on flash player being a resource hog. Currently it no longer is, which partially why lots of pc sites still use it. A couple of years back, good ol Apple gave flash the ultimatium to get more efficient. Flash didnt adapt to the request soon enough, so Apple abandoned all support in favor of of html5.
Neat feature; but, I haven't been a fan of browser games from since I was in elementary school. Although there are still a few I wouldn't mind playing; those are all in Flash-format, so, it's a no-go. Still cool though.
Thank god, finally something to play on wii u.
I have to say the Wii U's browser is better than any other console out there, well to be honest though, I have not used XB1's, so I can't say that 100%.
