Wii U - a whole new level of family gaming

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to try out the Wii U gaming console that will be released in a few months.

What's different?

There is a tablet that comes with the Wii U that can be used as a 2nd screen, it's great for balance games (think carrying a tray like a waiter), and it is used for group play.

In the new Zelda game, the person with the tablet is the one shooting the bow and arrow while the other players use the Wii remotes as swordsmen. There is a new ghost game where the person with the tablet IS the ghost, hiding from the other players who have to work together to catch him/her.

The tablet can also be used as a 2nd view, so in the game shown below, the tablet shows the view of the overal map of the area while the TV screen is the ground-level view.

The tablet is touch screen, and wireless. The wires you see are only because they don't have batteries in them for this event. You will be able to play your old Wii games and you can still use your current Wii remotes with the new Wii U system.

Look for it around the holidays.
