The Nintendo Wii U is said to arrive at retail stores throughout the US on Sunday, and it will not only come packaged with 29 games throughout the launch period alongside a bunch of other digital titles, but gamers will also be able to take advantage of Video on Demand services. This is made possible thanks to its TVii application which will arrive later in the year. Nintendo said that weeks after the Wii U is released, gamers of the platform will be able to take advantage of services such as Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, and Hulu Plus.
Apart from that, you are able to view YouTube videos as well as channels thanks to a dedicated YouTube application, and this will include other functions such as being able to sign in to your account, as well as engage with other Wii U users via TV shows, movies and sports. This certainly delivers a far more social aspect compared to regular video games, don’t you think so? Nintendo said, “Nintendo TVii makes watching TV simple and fun by bringing together a program guide, remote control and social interaction into one, seamless second-screen experience on the GamePad.”
