Nintendo unveiled today the launch details for the Wii U. The Wii U goes on sale in the United States on November 18. This is one week ahead of Black Friday 2012. The Wii U Basic Set is selling for $299.99 and the Wii U Deluxe Set is selling for $349.99.
Besides new games Nintendo also unveiled an entertainment service called TVii. TVii is a unified interface to TV shows and movies. It looks pretty cool. You choose what you want to watch and then you can decide if you get it from live TV, Netflix, Hulu or your TiVo. TVii looks much better than Google TV from the start. If TVii works as advertised it makes the Wii U a really attractive alternative to the Xbox 360. The Tablet controller is also perfect for the TVii service.

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.
