Wii U: The FrankenreviiuKate Cox11/22/12 9:00amFiled to: Wii uNintendofrankenreviewHardwareTop2241EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink It's a new console! These are momentous events in gaming, and yet nobody seems quite sure how to react to Nintendo's new entrant, the Wii U. To some, it feels like the last of a generation that launched with the Xbox 360 many years ago. To Nintendo, it's the first of the next generation, well ahead of Microsoft's and Sony's next iterations. It takes an interesting, two-pronged approach to audio and to video, though the two-screen approach can create some problems of its own. It comes with a huge, slow update right off the bat but combines the features of consoles and of portability.
