The new Wii console being released on November 19, 2012 is anticipated to be a huge seller. It is the Wii U and is the first new game console entry in 2012. As much as there are similar features to the previous Wii U, there are also many differences. Although it looks like a tablet, it’s a game pad unlike anything on the market right now. The new console is backward compatible with Wii games and accessories. Nintendo has improved the game processor, using a powerful chip from IBM, and is also enhancing the graphics capabilities to (finally) make the Wii high def. Many of the games are for younger children whereas hardcore gamers probably won’t be first in line to grab the new Wii U.
