Nintendo WII U
The Wii U is a video game console made by Nintendo that competes in the eighth generation of video game consoles with the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. It is the successor to the Wii. The Wii U's sales have so far been tracking far below Nintendo's original sales forecasts, but with Mario Kart 8's release sales have started to pick up. Some of the best selling games for the Wii U include New Super Mario Bros. U, Nintendo Land, Super Mario 3D World, Splatoon and Mario Kart 8.
It is the first Nintendo console capable of displaying up to 1080p high definition (HD) visuals, and utilizes a more robust online experience than its predecessor. The system's main controller, dubbed the Wii U GamePad, features a 6.2-inch touch screen which can stream content from the console, allowing for playing away from TV, as well as asymmetrical gameplay.
