Nintendo fans line up early for Wii Video Transcript
-The Wii is about to level up. I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNET Update. On Sunday, the Wii U goes on sale, but at the New York City Nintendo world store, several people are already waiting in line to be the first with the new system. -I've been here since Tuesday morning at 8:00 am. -Tuesday midnight. -Monday night. -I've been here since about the middle of October, so by Saturday night, I'll be- 8** -Since I'm a huge fan of Nintendo's portable gaming more than anything, we use almost like a giant DS and it's really exciting to me as a portable gamer to see how the home gaming is gonna change because of this. -Well, if that buy games online saves some money, definitely kicks in for me. Based on how you look at it, I think that from a parental perspective, it's gonna be "I can get this system for my child and they can now play the game on the tablet while I'm watching TV." -I just wanna get home and just lay in bed. I just play my Wii U. Just- I don't have to stand in front of the TV. -If there's one particular game in general, I'll sign up Super Mario Brothers for the Wii U, I'm very interested in which is Zombie U. -And I played the demo at the Nintendo Experience and I have not played a game like that with that- we're gonna change the entire- we play the actual videogames with it. You have to look through the game pad to find items that you need. -I have partners and sponsors that help me. One of the sponsors is as you can see [unk], VXG. They're a videogame entertainment group Docster which is a social media website for gamers. Without them, it would have been kind of impossible to do a whole month. -In other news, Microsoft has been hit with a lawsuit over the storage space in the new Circus tablet. The $500 Surface is advertised to have 32 gigs of storage, but there actually is only 16 gigs of free space to store your files. That's because half the storage is being taken up by the operating system and the included programs. So a lawyer in California is suing saying this is false advertising. Microsoft says the lawsuit is without merit since on its website, it does state that the user only gets 16 gigs of free space. Other tablets also have this issue, but I guess it's typically not this dramatic. If you get a 32-gig iPad, only 28 gigs is free to use. And Facebook is finally adding a way to share another user's post on a mobile device, but this Share button is only gonna be on the mobile website. It's coming soon for Apple and Android apps. That's your tech news update. You can find links to all of these stories on the blog cnet.com/update. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey.
