Well...depends on what kind of answer you're looking for. It is possible to play some HTML5 games on the Wii U web browser, but you'll be playing them poorly. Some won't have audio, others will have terrible frame rates. That's not say things couldn't be tweaked in the future, but for more on the state of how things are now, hit up the link below.

Who buys a $300-350 console to play flash games?

This really needs to die. The VAST majority of people don't buy a console for any one sort of game.

And having sold a 'Flash game' on consoles, I'm kinda offended :P

Anyways http://awwapp.com is probably my favorite use of the html5 features in the Wii U's browser so far.

I have nothing against the games themselves, as I know many great indie games started as flash/HTML5 games. But we have to agree that nowadays there are much better and more practical means of making games available to the public that are just as accessible. Web games are becoming outdated and being replaced by more optimized experiences, and I think it's for the better :P

Nintendo is extremely sloppy when it comes to adding new features to old software. If they change with the Wii U I'll be pleasantly surprised.
