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.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
