Wii U Hardware Preview: Everything You Need To Know About The Wii U

Posted on Monday, June 11 @ 12:49:03 Eastern by

Wii U Console

Weighing in at just over 3.4 lbs, the Wii U console measures at 1.8"H x 10.5"L x 6.8"W. An unspecified IBM Power-based multi-core processor works in tandem with a AMD Radeon-based HD GPU. The Wii U has on-board flash storage, SD card support, and support for USB HDDs, though it's not clear if these will be Nintendo-branded, or any USB HDD will do. The Wii U will utilize new optical discs, but will be backwards compatible with Wii discs and the Wii's controllers. 



The Wii U supports all resolutions up to 1080p via HDMI, and up to 6-channel linear PCM for sound. Wireless is built-in, supporting B, G, and N Wi-Fi standards. 

The Wii U, much like the other consoles, will have an internet browser and feature many different media stream options, such as Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, Youtube, and Hulu. The Nintendo eShop will be available at launch and feature select titles available digitally that are also available at retail.

Unique to the Wii U, will be a new social feature called Miiverse, demonstrated during the Nintendo E3 Press Conference. Miiverse will keep users connected and sharing at all times, throughout games and through the Wii U itself, such as the ability to comment on specific levels in New Super Bros. U. Also Wii U exclusive, is the inclusion of Near-Field Communication, though they didn't demonstrate any software using this feature.

No specific release date has been set, but the Wii U will release this holiday season. Expect pricing and an official launch date within the coming months.
