The console features 2GB of RAM, a Tri-Core Processor and a Controller with a 6-inch touchscreen embedded into it. People who have never played a Wii U before believe it's a console with a tablet gimmick. In reality, there are no gimmicks. Yes, everybody can admit the Wii had it's gimmick, but it revolutionized Gameplay. With the Wii U, Nintendo is simply offering a better Gaming experience rather than revolutionizing Gameplay. The Gamepad features all buttons on a normal controller with all triggers included. Now, if you've played a Wii U before, you'll see that you simply cannot go back to a PS3 or Xbox 360 controller.

The Wii U itself can share Mii characters with any 3DS system in range. This is perfect if you have a family member or friend who wants you on their collection of Miis. Of course, the resolution is slightly choppy on the 3DS, but nonetheless, the ability to exchange Miis is amazing. Of course, Netflix, Hulu Plus & Youtube are all included with the System. The system doesn't let you play DVD or Bluray discs, but having everything digital is the future and that's what Nintendo sees. It's also Nintendo's first HD console.
