Experiencing the Nintendo Wii U GamePad
I have nephews and nieces ( 5 in total ) but never know what to get them for the holidays. They're literally playing games all day and all night. Since I'm not a video game player and most parents don't know much about video games the WiiU Gamepad can be a gift idea for you this holiday season.
I recently had the opportunity to play and review games from Ubisoft and try out the NEW Nintendo WiiU GamePad.
SD card and 2 USB slots in front.
I have never seen a gamepad with a screen before so this is different for me. It enables you to interact with the game and tv in a new way. It has a touchscreen functionality and comes with a stylus as an optional use. The best feature I think most parents would appreciate is that you can use WiiU Gamepad to play on your tv but if you want to watch a movie on the tv, your child can just directly play from the WiiU Gamepad unit while you watch the movie. The WiiU Gamepad control acts like a universal remote as well. Another feature that is interesting is the NFC capabilities for future use.
There are 2 different units being sold:
8gig White unit with gamepad and stylus for $299.00
32gig Black unit with gamepad and stylus for $349.99
Specific pricing can be found on the site: Nintendo WiiU GamePad
If you ask me for my recommendations for a game that the family can enjoy, it would be the ESPN Sports Connection game. Why? It's interactive and has all the different sports you can play. Enough of the guns and shooting games, right? On a side note when I tested this game I played against a 7 year old girl and she struck me out in baseball. So everything is fair game. :-)
Ubisoft has released many new titles including:
Marvel Avengers: Battle For Earth
Just Dance Disney

So if you are a parent/uncle/aunt looking for a Tech gift this a great gift idea. It's new. It's different. So good luck on your search and gift shopping.
