Nintendo isn't afraid of different. It has thrown more crazy stuff at the wall—and gotten more of it to stick—than anyone. The Wii U is Nintendo's opinion of what's next.
Note: We'd originally planned on focusing on a rundown of the Wii U's TVii features, which let it operate as a Nintendo-powered cable box, and how it works as a media center with Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu Plus. Those features have been delayed until December now, but we will give you a big update once they are available.
