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).
