The Revolutionary new console in the form of the Nintendo Wii-U has been hugely anticipated, and has recently been announced as being available to buy in the UK from 30th November 2012.

Such was the demand of the original Wii console, released in 2006, that it was impossible to get hold of for months after launch due to the popularity and family appeal which was unique at the time. The most successful of all consoles has remained unchanged under the hood without upgrades in the last 6 years, with the only variations and new releases being colour changes or branded versions, so the release of the Wii-U is a massive event and sure to create huge demand.

Many retailers and supermarkets are now taking Pre-orders for the Nintendo Wii-U, and we provide full details below of the stockists and Wii-U price comparisons for each version available.

If you’ve had the opportunity to try out the Wii-U console, please let us know your opinion by writing a review below.

Wii-U Description and Features

Given the original Nintendo Wii has been around for 6 years, it’s functionality has passed the test of time and it is still regarded as a favourite amongst families and sells at good levels. Only hardcore PS3 and XBox gamers will dismiss the Wii in it’s current form as second rate in terms of enhanced technology and picture quality.Well that is certainly about to change when the Wii-U console releases in November 2012. There will be two different versions of the Wii-U, the standard 8GB White Wii-U, as well as the Premium Black Wii-U with an impressive 32GB. The major advance in the technology and capabilities comes in the form of the Wii-U Game Pad, containing a handheld 6 inch touchscreen to act as a 2nd screen, as well as interacting with the TV and housing all the required controls.The console itself is a massive advancement from the original, still sleek and slim making extra storage space unnecessary, but now is Wi_Fi enabled allowing internet access. A massive 1GB of RAM is available for loading and storing games, twice as much as is currently available to the latest models of PS3 and XBox.  Graphics are now a major factor in bringing realism and enhancing the experience of the modern day blockbusters, and initial indications are the GPU being more powerful than other consoles, making the visual effects more impressive on the Wii-U in multi-platform games.
