What It Is
Notable Launch Titles
MiiVerse: MiiVerse is a built-in Nintendo social network that allows you to connect with friends, see what they're playing, and interact with other Wii U owners in your area. There's a news feed, just like Facebook, and there are also communities that are focused on specific games, allowing you to connect with others who share your passions.
Streaming Video Options: The Wii U comes equipped with Netflix, YouTube, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Instant Video.
Games: The Nintendo eShop is available for downloadable titles.
TV Options: In addition to Netflix, Hulu Plus, and other outside apps, the Wii U also offers Nintendo TVii. TVii was supposed to be a feature available at launch, but it has been pushed back until December. When it's available, however, it promises to offer a mash up of DVR functionality, live TV, and streaming video services, allowing you to manipulate and combine different features to watch what you want, when you want to.
