The arrival of Nintendo's Wii U

Boot Camp feature for Monday, November 19, 2012

The arrival of Nintendo’s Wii U.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Nintendo’s next generation video game console, the Wii U, has arrived.    While it is backward compatible with all of the hardware add-ons and games made for the original Wii, Nintendo has added HD graphics and a unique tablet controller.   About the games, Executive VP Scott Moffitt says….

“We’ve got the strongest launch line up ever for a Nintendo new platform.  There are more than 24 games available on launch day including fan favorites like new Super Mario Brothers U, a new franchise called Nintnedo Land,  but we’ve got games for core gamers as well such as Call of Duty Black Ops II, Zombie U, Assassins Creed III.”

And more like a new Madden Football re-worked to use the second screen Gamepad Controller.  Pricing for the Wii U is starts at about 300 dollars.  The deluxe model is fifty dollars more.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
