Nintendo Wii U to Launch in November in U.S. and Europe: Will Work as a DVR
Nintendo gaming consoles are of the most favorite devices for gaming fans and kids. On Thursday, Nintendo exclusively announced that its popular gaming console Nintendo Wii U will launch in November in the U.S. and Europe, and will also work as DVR-a home entertainment center, when connecting with video streaming services.
Just after many online demonstrations in Japan, North America and Europe, the company confirmed that the Wii U console will be launched in time for the vital holiday season. The basic version of 8GB internal memory will cost $299.99, while 32GB of memory will be available for $349.99.
The company has also shown demos on their Wii U game console, having a single game controller equipped with its own touchscreen, will also work as DVR- an entertainment center, making users capable of streaming video stuff from Hulu, Amazon and Netflix to their TV sets.
Moreover, the touchpad of the forthcoming console will show some extra content, just like box scores and statistics for sports broadcasts, a timeline of key moments for TV shows, and previews for movie services.
November 18 is the launching date of Nintendo Wii U game console in the U.S. while it will hit the shelves on November 30 in Europe, while the device will go on sale in Japan (home country) on December 8.
In the U.S. broadcast, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime assured that the Wii U console will have numerous wonderful games before its launch. Notably, Nintendo 3DS suffered a big failure just due to lack of games forcing the game company to cut down the prices.
“It’s still a little too early to guarantee exactly which games will be here for you on launch day itself and which will come shortly thereafter,” he said. “But I can assure you that this launch library, beginning on day one, will be the strongest for any Nintendo home platform in our history.”
He further told that more than 50 games would be available from the launch through the end of March 2013.
Nintendo offers the new version of its classic “Super Mario Brothers” franchise for the Wii U, besides a version of “Metroid” to play and more popular gaming titles are going to include like “Call of Duty Black Ops 2,” “Transformer”, and the successor to the “Bayonetta” combat.
