The other night I was lucky enough to be one of the first in the world 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 30.

It's been playable at the Target I work at for like 2 weeks.

Yeah, I wandered casually into a Gamestop the other day and they had one there too. I'm tempted to buy it but frankly my backlog of games too play on everything from PSX to 360 is enormous. That said, if it were to have upscaled Wii games like it should have I would buy one in a heartbeat.

Even though I know it most likely lwon't have a lot of 3rd party support, I have to play ZombiU and Pikmin and the next 3D Mario. I figure enough good 1st party titles will come out in it's lifetime to warrant a purchase. Just gotta resist the urge to sell when they start putting out slimmer, larger screened controllers.
