The Wii U has been available in the United States for almost a week and already Nintendo's first HD console is facing availability issues. The console is set to arrive in Europe on at the end of this month. Still, a console is nothing without some grade A content to go along with it. To that end, Nintendo today revealed the launch line-up for the Wii U's UK release.
TechRadar reports that the full launch line-up will feature no less than 24 titles. Among them are FIFA 13, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Assassin's Creed 3, and Just Dance 4. The Wii U will launch in Europe on November 30 priced from £249.99. The console features Nintendo's unique Wii GamePad tablet, which serves as both a controller and a secondary screen and features an accelerometer, gyroscope, camera, dual analog sticks, a built-in sensor strip, a built-in microphone, and NFC. The controller can either replicate the picture on the TV or offer secondary content for gameplay, such as maps or inventory.

The Wii U doesn't seem very appealing except for the controller.
From a PC gamer perspective, I'd rather get a PS3 or Xbox 360, they both have so many more appealing features. It's kind of sad too, I used to be a big Nintendo fan when I had an NES, and SNES.
I'm confident the PS4 and Xbox 720 will tear this thing to pieces as long as the price is reasonable, by the release time of those consoles the Wii U hype will wither down greatly.
Maybe I'm wrong, but that's just what it looks like to me.
game launch titles were never extremely large. compare the games at 360 launch to games of 360 now. the games details has vastly changed then. it takes time in order to do it.
I'm sure the Wii U will sell a lot though, but 300+ for a console that still doesn't have as many usefulness as a PS3, just for a few Nintendo exclusives seems meh. Of course more will come out, when they are developed, but seems to be a disappointing release game wise.
