Ho Ho Ho! Merry Crimson!
The other night I was lucky enough to be one of the first in Australia to play on the Wii U. It's innovative. The new controller can make this console a handheld device, the console unit just has to be in range. So in other words, you can watch TV while your friend plays on the Wii U, because the new controller has a screen. I was only able to play on a few games and one of those games a Zombie shoot em up game called ZombU and basically the plot line is you're in Buckingham palace and everyone's a zombie, anyway, I found there to be no real improvement in the graphics from the original Wii, granted these games were 3 month old development builds, but I've seen some development builds with great graphics. The console comes out November 18 in the USA and November 30 everywhere else..
