The Wii U has so far been received with mixed reactions. Nintendo fans love it, most gamers understand the concept behind it, and some will always be haters, no matter what. But when it comes to the mainstream press, the Wii U hasn’t yet attracted a lot of attention, but that’s slowly beginning to change.
Business publication Business Insider recently had a hands-on experience with the Wii U, and they came away impressed. Writer Dylan Love, who doesn’t recognize himself as a gamer, put it bluntly:
“I’ve had relatively limited experience with console video games, so keep that in mind when I tell you the following: the Wii U is the most fun I’ve ever had playing games on a console hooked up to my TV.”
He went on, saying that he’s emphasizing “fun” and not graphics and storytelling. His favorite game was Mario Chase, which is part of Nintendo Land.
The Wii U hasn’t gotten nearly as much press as the revolutionary Wii console when it was about to launch. Hopefully this will change in the last month before the Wii U launch. The Wii U will launch on the November 18th in North America, and will come in two SKUs: a Basic $299 set, and a Deluxe set at $349 with some accessories and a copy of Nintendo Land.
