Nintendo's newest console, Wii U, has just arrived in the Shacknews offices. So of course, we unboxed it. If you can't wait until November 18th, here's your chance to see what's inside the box: the oddly-long system, the surprisingly light GamePad, and monstrously large power adapter. And yes, an HDMI cable (thank you Nintendo!). We were also surprised by what's not in the box: a Wii Remote--meaning, you should keep some of those classic Wii accessories around.

      While I must admit that the Wii U is a pretty slick looking machine,I have little to no interest in it because there are no games that I'm willing to pay $300+ that I can't already pay on my PS3.
