Review: Nintendo's Wii U a potential dual threat

The launch of the Wii U is exciting for any Nintendo fan, but one thing that’s bumming owners out is the delay of Nintendo TVii. We found out just before launch that Nintendo TVii won’t be arriving until sometime in December, when before that announcement, Nintendo had been saying that the service would be patched in at launch.

The GamePad is highlighted by a 6.2-inch touchscreen, flanked by thumbsticks on each side, a camera on top and an assortment of buttons standard on most video-game controllers. Imagine stretching out a traditional controller and slapping a screen right in the middle.
