Nintendo’s Wii U console and release date info
The Nintendo Wii U will launch in the US on Sunday, November 18. It'll arrive in Europe on November 30, though no price was given for our friends abroad. Like its Japanese release, the console comes in two varieties: a base level bundle in white with just 8GB of internal memory for $300 and a premium bundle in black with 32GB of internal memory for $350.
Each version contains the console itself, a WiiPad, a charging stand, a play stand, and a stand for the console. The premium version, however, adds a subscription to Nintendo's Premium Network, which offers various rewards for digital purchases -- it also gets a full 32GB of internal memory, which is a pretty major step up over the 8GB model. It's hard to imagine either having enough internal storage compared with current-gen consoles, but the Wii U's memory is expandable via USB. Also nintendo is stating to release 50 games from nov-march. Some if not most updated versions of titles availible on the ps3 and the 360

Aslo Nintendo showed off some of the Wii U's new television functionality during its New York City press event. irst unveiled during E3 2012 -- including DVR and TiVO, and search across several content providers (Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant, and cable television, to name a few). It's unclear whether the DVR functionality is built into the console or not. Nintendo's director of strategic partnership Zach Fountain's calling the service a "personalized program guide" and he showed off how you'll be able to interact with content -- movies and television shows can be searched via text entry, or explored in a general category sense (movies, tv, sports, etc.). If QWERTY text isn't your kind of thing, a rotary entry in the lower right corner offers another way to seek out content.
Nintendo TVii is free with the purchase of a console this November and is really the only reason to buy this updated wii console.
Will Nintendo see similar success with the Wii U like they did the Wii or is there not enough here to warrant the unusual high asking price from Nintendo to make it this years must have for christmas?

Sexy Time
NEW YORK, Sept. 17 (UPI) -- A pair of New York Yankees fans were filmed having sex in a stadium bathroom during the team's win over the Tampa Bay Rays.
The video, which was posted to sports blog Deadspin, depicts a man in a CC Sabathia T-shirt having sex with a woman in a bathroom identified by a tipster as being located under the left field bleachers, the New York Daily News reported Monday.
"People were jockeying for position outside the stall to take pics either over or under, and even standing up on the toilet bowl on the neighboring stall," the tipster told Deadspin.
The New York Post reported the couple received a standing ovation from their fellow fans when they exited the restroom.
The Yankees beat the Rays 5-3.

Fuckin’ Chicken
Carolina woman said she will argue in court her family should be able to keep a chicken because it is a pet, not a farm animal banned by city ordinance.
Stephanie Stewart, 41, of Bluffton admitted she did not have permission from the city or from her homeowner's association when her family adopted Smartie the chicken, but she plans to argue in Bluffton Municipal Court that the foul is a family pet, not a banned livestock animal, The Hilton Head (S.C.) Island Packet reported Tuesday.
"Growing up in Indiana ... I think of cows and horses as livestock," Stewart said. "I am not looking to farm, and I'm not going to build an ugly coop in my yard. [Smartie] sleeps in a dog crate in the garage. She mostly stays in my flower beds underneath plants I have out there. She scratches around, and if it's getting dark, she will peck on the door to come in."
Stewart said her family adopted Smartie in June and her 3-year-old daughter, Shaelyn, is particularly fond of the bird.
Town Manager Anthony Barrett said police cited Stewart Aug. 30 after receiving a complaint about the ordinance violation.
"I will assure you the police department was not just riding through the neighborhood and saw a chicken and issued a citation. A complaint was filed, and the police department responded," he said.
