Nintendo just announced the new Wii U gaming console today in New York City. The hand held device will come in two versions: Basic and Deluxe. The Wii U, coming November 18th in the US and November 30th to Europe, will cost between $300 and $350 depending on which version you choose.
The Basic version comes in white with an 8 GB console, gamepad, HDMI cable, AC adapter and sensor bar. The Deluxe Edition packs all that and more into a black console with 32 GB. The added bonus of buying the Deluxe Edition is a free copy of Nintendoland and the Deluxe Digital Promotion which helps you earn points and rebates when you shop for games online. The price difference is only $50, so the choice is pretty obvious.
Nintendo also presented a long list of new games including: Bayonetta 2, The Wonderful 101, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Skylanders Giants, 007 Legends, Transformers Prime: The Game, Wipeout and Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Nintendo stated that some 50 games will become available for the Wii U by March 2013.
The Wii U also comes with a new Nintendo TVii feature which allows you to watch shows, sports and movies on your device. Having a Hulu Plus, Netflix and Amazon account is necessary to use this function well.
