+ - Wii U web browser's HTML5 gaming capabilities->

Submitted by richtaur
richtaur (1234738) writes "Following Microsoft's addition to Internet Explorer on the Xbox 360, Nintendo has launched a web browser on their next-generation Wii U console. Much different from Opera's Internet Channel browser on Wii, this new innocuously titled "Internet Browser" is based on Webkit.

In an article The Wii U web browser's HTML5 gaming capabilities, a small HTML5 game studio does a deep-dive of what the browser is capable of. No audio support, no ability to save state, and zero WebGL support are some of the browser's many issues. The upshot? Some games are quite playable. With a little more development effort, there's some real potential for Nintendo's console to tap into a vast library of HTML5 games."
