tl;dr

Nintendo has been keeping any official announcements of whatever the Wii U is capable of doing close to themselves, making information sparse. Fortunately, Ubisoft was able to spill the beans on three things that Nintendo fans have been consistantly asking for a while: the price, release date, and specs. Along with the devs currently working on games for the system.

Firstly, the price is being finalized between $350 and $450 which is WAY off the predicted price of between $200 and $300. Secondly, the release date is going to be on November 23rd, which is also off the predicted release date of November 11th. Finally, the specs will be running at DirectX 11, and the system will be able to use Unreal Engine 4, despite devs constantly saying it won't.

Additionally, the Wii U will support 2 touch controllers, the console has 2 GBs of RAM, and 560MB for the controller. Also, Assassins Creed 3 will run at 60 fps at 1080p, compared to the 720p on PS3 and Xbox 360. The Wii U will also come with pre-installed software, which was already rumored for months. The Devs currently working to make games for the system are Crytek, EA, and Valve. The Wii U will support achievments, and have a customizable UI, similar to the PS3 and Xbox 360s UI. And Finally, the Wii U will support the vitality sensor, because it still exists.

So, what do you guys think about the new Wii U announcements?
