"possibly the best console ever"5.0 starson by TaylorDC
Pros: dual screen tablet pad awesomeness easy fast internet connection
Cons: slow updates
Summary: so i brought the Wii u the other day and thought id do a little review. If any one was thinking of getting one don't listen to all the bad hype it has received. It is an amazing machine it hasn't got the power and graphics of the big hitters that are to come but it holds its own with its own style of beauty and unique game play. Its silent as a ghost while and quite small probably a quarter of the size of a 360. The new pad is awesome its basically a tablet which brings features that complement the console nicely. These features make it appealing as a entertainment system much like the new Xbox one in the fact that it does a load more then just play games. There are two draw backs though that i have ran into though. 1 the start up system updates can take ages so if you buy it as a gift its best to do this before giving it away especially if your giving it to a younger more inpatient person and 2 it does take a little while around 5 to 10 seconds to go back to the main menu from games and apps. The only other thing is the lack of defining games out at the moment but with huge titles in the pipeline plus the few that are out already its a good steal at only £260. It has the ability to become my favorite machine once it grows into its full potential.
