Wii U versus Wii - Time for an Upgrade?

Wii U versus Wii - Time for an Upgrade?
 
 

The Wii U is here and the supply situation is starting to ease. See below some thoughts on why you should consider upgrading.


Nintendo have always gone against the mould when it comes to creating game consoles, choosing not to focus on graphical power but instead on gaming experience. Their latest effort in the form of the Wii U has been a huge success –selling out in the UK after two days. So what’s the hype about and is it worth upgrading from the Wii to the Wii U. We take a look at the console and see if it’s really worth it.

Size and build
The appearance of the Wii U is far from groundbreaking, looking like a slightly remodeled, elongated older brother to the original, but then again –we don’t buy consoles based on what they look like, it’s what underneath that matters.

The biggest update to the console is that it now supports HD outputs, a first for the Nintendo camp. The fact that the Wii U supports old Wii games and controllers provides a massive incentive for Wii owners to upgrade, especially with the possibility of HD graphics.

GamePad
The most significant change to the Wii format is the introduction of the GamePad controller. The Gamepad is reminiscent of the PSP and 3DS – with dual analogue controls. The 6.2 inch touch screen is a great development that offers a lot new functionality and gameplay dynamics.

The gamepad works incredibly well with the motion sensor, using built in accelerometers, gyroscope and geomagnetic sensors to add new gaming dynamics that Wii users will definitely enjoy.

The inbuilt front facing camera is a welcome addition to the Wii U, allowing for a high level of in-game customization. Despite not being the best quality camera, it does the job more more than well enough.

Features
The Wii’s success was partly due to its multiplayer focus. The Wii U takes this even further, allowing up to five players at any one time.  The only real problem is that the Wii U only allows for two GamePad controllers to be connected, meaning your friends will have to use your old Wii controllers.

The new asymmetrical gaming style is somewhat confusing to get to grips with, but the added complexity makes the Wii U that much more interesting, and there is a definite sense of achievement and heightened enjoyment when the control system does become second nature.

The Wii U isn’t the most powerful console on the market, but it offers a significant upgrade for Wii owners, especially when you consider the additional gaming dynamics that come with it. If you’re a Nintendo fan, we more than recommend that you sell your DS and old Wii to finance the purchasing of the fantastic Wii U.
