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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

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.
