Wii U heading on Aussie tour

To visit most capital cities in Wii U Experience pop-up stores

Gaming company, Nintendo, has announced that its upcoming Wii U console will be touring Australia in a series of pop-up stores across the country commencing on Monday, November 5.

The hands-on experience offer follows the Wii U’s appearance at EB Expo last month.

The Wii U Experience Stores will allow the public to test the Wii U GamePad controller, which Nintendo said will change the in-home gaming experience.

In addition, the pop-ups will feature a range of pre-release titles for the Wii U, as well as a range of recently released 3DS games.

The Wii U will hit Australian retailers on November 30. The ‘Wii U Basic Pack’ (white console with 8GB of internal storage) will have an SRP of $349.95, with the ‘Wii U Premium Pack’ (black console with 32GB storage, Nintendo Land game, console stand, and charging cradle) coming in at an SRP of $429.95. Both figures are, as always, higher than the US prices ($US299 for Basic, $US349 for Premium).

Check out the Wii U Experience Stores at the following locations:

  • Sydney – Sydney Plaza (November 5 to 9)
  • Melbourne – Fountain Gate (November 5 to 11)
  • Gold Coast – Pacific Fair (November 12 to 17)
  • Brisbane – King Georges Square (November 18 to 23)
  • Adelaide – Rundle Mall (November 24 to 29

Nintendo has made further information regarding its Australian pop-ups available through its website.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
