With Nintendo’s new console release just weeks away, news about the Wii U is flooding onto the internet. Even the game discs are newsworthy.

And that’s because they’re special. It seems Nintendo have taken a leaf out of Apple’s book of “make things better for no practical reason”. Website Engadget was first to point out that the Wii U’s game discs have specially sculpted edges.

The website also posted images like the one below that shows a comparison between the Wii U disc (right) and the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 discs. You can check out more images in the source link below.
