The Wii U Experience
The adventure this week is pretty darn cool. Nintendo is very smart about their marketing, let me tell you. Nintendo kicked off a tour recently in which they are hosting exclusive, invite-only events in which a few hundred people would get the chance to experience the new Wii U which is confirmed to be coming out in “the holiday season,” according to the host of the event. The tour is going to be in Chicago, NYC, Miami, and Washington DC. I was surprised to find that I was pretty much the only DSLR toting photographer at this event. The whole point of the event was to inform a small percentage of the public what the Wii U is actually like to help prevent any speculations and rumors. Now Nintendo has got the public doing their viral marketing for them! One common misconception about the Wii U controller is that it is very heavy, but it is in fact very light. Much lighter than an iPad, in fact. Here are my pictures from the event.
