Off TV - no problem!

Nintendo itself will be the first to admit that it hasn't done the best job of communicating exactly what Wii U is all about, and that has led to confused costumers all over the globe. Is it a new system? Is it an add-on? Is it more powerful than the original Wii? These are all questions that, as Nintendo fans, we've all had to answer to some point.

Thankfully, it would appear that Nintendo of America has finally woken up to this issue and has released what has to be the most comprehensive promotional video for Wii U yet seen.

This "overview video" highlights all of the console's strengths, such as off-TV play, HD visuals, online play and on-demand video, and wraps it all up with some appealing, family-friendly footage. If anything is going to put across the appeal of the console to the average person, it's this.

It would appear that Nintendo has turned a corner with its video promotions — the recent commercial for Wii Fit U was similarly effective. What do you think of these new videos? Share your feelings by posting a comment below.
