This list should make the Wii U appealing to gamers from Day 1. Not much is known about the specs of the console except that it will give the user the ability to stream 1080p videos via Netflix, Hulu, YouTube and Amazon Video. The Wii U will also be backwards compatible with Wii games and you will be able to use your Wiimotes, nunchucks, balance boards and classic controllers.
Also, the Wii U will be powered by an IBM multi-core chip and will use solid-state flash storage to save games and transfer media with the type of flash storage devices being SD flash storage cards and USB 2.0 flash storage devices. The capacity of the flash storage is unknown, however. Graphics will be provided by AMD.
The Nintendo Wii U is expected around Christmas 2012.
