New York Times on Wii U: “Nintendo has another hit on its hands”


Early praise from a respected newspaper:

Two days earlier, under extreme secrecy and security precautions, I got to try Wii U for myself. My initial verdict: Nintendo has another hit on its hands, an innovative new system that has a chance to shake up electronic entertainment…

As is true with the Wii, words don’t really convey the visceral reality of the new system. You can’t really “get it” until you try it yourself. But the combination of high-def graphics with this new screen-enhanced controller should put Nintendo back in the thick of the home console wars with Sony and Microsoft (after playing second place to the latter over the last year).
