The Wii U web browser receives the highest HTML 5 test scores of any browser on a game console today.

By Kyo Sasaki

We're just over two weeks away from the launch of Wii U, and Nintendo is slowly revealing more details about its home console's capabilities. Though we still don't have a full account of the system's online services, including Miiverse, we now have a huge technical readout of its Internet browser. The Wii U console will offer full web browsing functionality on its GamePad controller, and while it won’t support Flash, it has full support for HTML 5, the latest standard in web technologies.

For those of you well versed in browser jargon, you can see the full readout on Nintendo's official site. One of the more interesting results of Nintendo and NetFront's plans is an independent assessment of the browser through the site HTML5 test. Different browsers are analyzed based on "how important [a] feature is for web developers and how difficult it is to implement that feature." Out of a possible 515 points, Wii U's browser, specific to the HTML 5 standard, scores a 323, the highest of any dedicated game machine. For perspective, the Xbox 360 browser (Internet Explorer 9) scores a 120, while Internet Explorer 10 managed 326 points.

Nintendo is embracing HTML 5 with the Wii U, as many Miiverse features will be powered by HTML 5, such as chat and the Twitter-like service where players can post news of what they’re playing, share screenshots, and more.

    Its next gen so what? It should be. I hope Nintendo puts the same effort in building a gaming console that competes with the next gen of Microsoft and Sony's systems that they put into their Web Browsing.

    LMAO ^ Right. A new console better have a better browser than console that are over 5 years old. Wake me when the Wii U releases a game worth a damn.

    The PS3's browser wasnt measured. They only scored the Wii, Wii U, La'Vita, 3DS and 360. The PS3 browser must not meet the minimum requirements. Or maybe PSN was down during testing or something.
