Well it has to be plugged into a wall socket. So I would assume that makes it not a portable console.

Do you really not know?

It's a different console, you're only thinking about the controller.

Technically it's portable but only at home.

By that theory so is a PS3. *Puts his PS3 in his backpack while it's still plugged in and starts to walk in a 5 foot circle around his TV*

It has two parts: The console itself(The "Wii" you see it plugged with), and the controller(What some people assume is the console).

No, it's not portable, what you're thinking of is just the controller, the Wii U itself is a console that is not portable.

You "could" technically store the WiiU in a backpack, plug in some place and use the gamepad
