Wii U unboxing - We open up Nintendo's new console for the first time

Yesterday we gave you a taste of Wii U unboxing when we cracked open our first retail games, but that's nothing compared to what Nintendo sent us today. The publisher not only sent us a retail version of its upcoming system, we also got a handful of launch games. The moment we got our hands on it, we just had to rip the box open and share it with our readers. See what's in store for you November 18 in the video below...

    My favorite part was Just Dance 4, how many copies did you get and why did you get that many, and can I have one?

    Did you guys get Just Dance 4, the sequel to the #1 dancing game of all time?! Great unboxing though. Very thorough. :)

    Really, what game is that? Dance Central?

    I am genuinely shocked, and slightly annoyed at how little everyone unboxing this thing knows about it. I've watched a few unboxing videos now and everyone seems to be completely clueless. In this video, its the stands for the Wii U Console, there are stands so you can stand it up vertically. The nubs are only there to stop you doing it without using the proper stand that is included in the box. In another unboxing video, I think it was Giant Bomb, they didn't have a clue what the Wii U Gamepad stand was. Gaming journalists should know this stuff by now. And even if they didn't, its all on the Wii U Box. Sorry for complaining, but in every unboxing I've watched, it really seems like no one knows what the hell they're talking about. Still it's nice to see some consoles in the wild.

    Hey guys! It's Just Dance 4, the sequel to the best selling dance game of all time! Cool video guys. The gamepad looks nice, but I'm not completely sold on the WiiU yet. We shall see.

    I just preordered all four versions of Just Dance 4. Can't wait to open them!

    This reminds me of when my mom unboxed me.
  • TanookiMan - November 8, 2012 6 a.m.

    Hahaha, I heard the non-deluxe unboxing only opened one copy of just dance 4....
