Wii U browser specs detailed, won't support Adobe Flash

Wii U browser specs detailed, won't support Adobe Flash photo



Hey, guess how long until the Wii U launches in North America? A little over two weeks. Two weeks; it hadn't even crossed my mind. I suppose, then, that now would be a pretty good time for Nintendo to go into a bit more detail about the Wii U's web browser that many of us have been wondering about. Oh, wait, they just did? Yay!

According to the specifications that Nintendo has posted, the Wii U will be able to display web pages thanks to the NetFront NX browser engine and supports HTML 5, though it lacks any plug-in support -- this, of course, means no Adobe Flash. The list also makes clear that users won't be able to save images that they find, neither will they be able to upload any videos or pictures saved on the console. Honestly, I don't see that as a negative thing, especially considering its rather remarkable HTML 5 performance test results.

Nintendo Download: Donkey Kong 64

This week, the Nintendo 64 rides again with Donkey Kong 64 on the Wii U eShop. It's an incredibly bizarre, flawed, and all-around awesome experience that must be seen to be believed. Oh, and Tilelicious: Delicious Tiles ...more
