Wii U: Nintendo's New Console;

As we get closer and closer to the release date of the Wii U, new features are becoming known, including the just revealed "Near Field Communication."  NFC is the technology you might know from games like Skylanders Spyro Adventurers. Where you can "scan in" real world objects, and use them in the game world.

According to Nintendo, if you install this functionality:

"it will become possible to create cards and figurines that can electronically read and write data via noncontact NFC and to expand the new play format in the video game world. Adoption of this functionality will enable various other possibilities such as using it as a means of making micropayments.

So not only will the real world and the game world interact in new ways, you'll also be able to scan your credit cards for easy micro-payments. 

Now that we know a little bit more about the Wii U -- the NFC tech, the Nintendo Network -- has your opinion of the device changed?
