Holiday gift guide – Wii U

Wii U
($300-$350)

Nintendo’s next generation videogame system hasn’t yet garnered quite as much buzz as the Wii did in 2006 (perhaps because of the confusing similarities of the system names), but it’s still a big leap forward for the company. Adding a tablet controller to the Wii’s motion controls opens up new areas of gameplay, especially for large groups. And the inclusion of high-definition graphics for the first time lets the company’s games shine. The tablet’s also useful for homes where gamers battle for dominance of the TV with others in the house, since play can shift there seamlessly.
