Wii U Will Get Big App Store

Nintendo has an app store of sorts for the Wii and for the DS portable consoles. Most of the games on the DS and Wii are old school retro titles that are of questionable value to those that didn't grow up playing them to begin with. The app store from Nintendo for the new Wii U will be a much more robust offering.

Along with games for the Wii and other apps, the Wii U app store is also expected to have apps that are just for the touch screen controllers. It would be cool to be able to play a game on the consoles and then play smaller games on the controller alone.

The Daily also says that there will be productivity style apps coming that can run on the controllers. Things like email and other productivity apps would be welcome. I can see that being interesting, you could use the controllers like a tablet around the house.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
