This is how Wii-to-Wii U transfers are going down, son

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1837 days, 22 hours, 17 minutes ago
Thursday, November 08, 2012 9:29:44 AM GMT
Feel that gnawing sensation at the base of your spine? That uncomfortable shiver that creeps along your extremities and makes your hair stand on end? That's called "fear," and it's probably what you experienced every time you downloaded a game on the Wii. With the Wii U on the horizon, that fear is likely back in full force as you nervously pace about, wondering if Nintendo will hold to its promise of offering a means of transferring Wii data to the new console.

The wheels of progress keep turning! Not only are Americans now legally allowed to marry bags of marijuana, Nintendo is permitting more than one user to create an identity on the Wii U. Up to 12 users per system, in fact! Modernization rings triumphant! (more)

Iwata dons white gloves to unbox a Wii U for U

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1837 days, 22 hours, 25 minutes ago
Thursday, November 08, 2012 9:22:17 AM GMT
Nintendo President Satoru Iwata may be the best person to watch unboxing a Wii U, since he knows precisely what he's doing with each of the parts. Besides, he wears fancy white gloves that he says make him feel like Mario, and that's pretty baller (and helps avoid fingerprints on the glossy system). Be sure to heck out Joystiq's own sexy unboxing as well. (more)

Nintendo's Wii U Deluxe digital promo is poorly designed

Wednesday, October 31, 2012 8:04:32 AM GMT
Nintendo really wants us to believe that they're serious about getting into the digital distribution game with the Wii U. Today, they announced the Deluxe Digital Promotion, available to purchasers of the Wii U Deluxe console, which will reward purchases of digital games made through 2014 with eShop credit. (more)

Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed won't have voice support on Wii U

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1853 days, 23 hours, 50 minutes ago
Tuesday, October 23, 2012 7:56:45 AM GMT
Voice chat is not a standard feature for the Wii U. Late last week it was revealed that voice chat is only supported through third-party, officially licensed headsets plugged into the headphone jack of the WiiPad. Yes, the WiiPad has a built-in microphone, but don't hurt yourself trying to figure why that won't work. Also, things get really complicated when you realize the Pro Controller doesn't have a headphone jack. (more)

Wii U voice chat sounds pretty complicated

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1858 days, 22 minutes ago
Friday, October 19, 2012 7:25:16 AM GMT
Nintendo is approaching voice chat on Wii U from a very ... odd angle. Select games will support voice chat via third-party, officially licensed headsets plugged into the WiiPad's headphone jack, but voice chat will not be standard across all games or even the system itself. Even though the WiiPad has a built-in microphone, it can't be used for voice chat. (more)
