Nintendo Wii U to Launch Well into Holiday Season


Nintendo will continue its effort to make a comeback in the video game console business. It will introduce its new Wii U in Japan on December 8. It is a wonder that the Japanese company will not have the product out in the United States well before the end of the holiday season. The BBC reports:

The device features a touchscreen offering players to ability to carry out in-game tasks, such as checking their inventory or setting an explosive, while the main action continues on their television. Gamers can also continue to play a title using the device when they do not have access to their main screen.

Nintendo has claimed it would help "revolutionise" gaming.

The "revolutionising" process already has begun, as video game activity moves away from traditional platforms onto smartphones and tablets.
