Yeeeees. Or no... it was a gift; lucky me! I'm enjoying Mario and Zombi U. I passed on the Wii and only played it a couple of times and never owned a DS so it's nice to have a Nintendo console again. I'm liking the gamepad a lot. Something different than PS3/360. I could see myself just picking up a 360 probably next console cycle and having the Wii U for the Nintendo games.
Unless some spectacular exclusive games come along, I won't be getting one. Right now I have a Wii, 360, PS3 and a good PC and I really only use the 360 and PC. I will be much more selective in my future console buys. Of course I say this now and will probably buy all of them
nah, i doubt i'll get one. i'm not big into nintendo games, and third party games have been well, crap on nintendo for ages now. so unless that somehow turns around (which i dont see happening) i wont be getting one.
dont get me wrong, im not hating on it, it looks pretty cool and if i could have one for free i'd totally take it. its just the games dont interest me much.
Nope, and I currently have no plans on ever getting one. Nintendo screwed me on the Wii and I won't let them fool me again with their new gimmicky system. I'll stick to PC and continue to buy the next PS and Xbox. I wouldn't be surprised if this is their last system.
I honestly don't understand why they need to do these dumb gimmicks. If they would have just went back to basics with a normal controller and high-end graphics, I would have been on board. Any third party developer would have jumped on that bandwagon. Instead, they did the Wii U and make developers question whether or not to make their game for that platform. It also can't be a straight port since they now have to program stupid maps and screens for the gamepad which just makes developers think twice on whether or not it is worth it to port their game.
Yes. It really is an awesome console. Even just little things like using the Gamepad as a TV remote, and I love the Miiverse. It's just cool seeing people's messages and comments. It gives the whole experience a real sense of community. I feel like we are all just enjoying ourselves and sharing our joy. You don't get that with the 360, PS3, or PC.
Why would I spend $350 on a console that's already outdated? There are developers out there who have said they will NOT port games to the Wii U because they'd have to downgrade them to get them to run on the Wii U.
So all you'll get on a Wii U are Nintendo games and crappy, dumbed down ports. No thanks. I don't care for Nintendo games at all. I want my Call of Duty, Halo, Forza and Madden. And I want them to look good, not like s*
I haven't heard anything about the Wii U surprisingly i need to check up on that. I'm a fan of Nintendo for keeping the soul of video games alive, i can sit and play and enjoy games from them with groups of all ages and i respect that. when i play xbox and ps3 and its just all one big penis measuring contest and a slew of Multiplayer Macho game trash talk.
I plan on getting a Wii U after i find some great titles for it that i would like.
I was slightly hesitant at first, but I eventually broke down and got one. I had a LOT of gift cards that I had accrued over the past year at gamestop so it only came out to about 100 bucks (I also traded in a few games I didn't play anymore). When I started playing with it, I was pleasantly surprised. I may not be using it for games all the time, but shit, I'm using it for netflix at this moment, so it'll definitely get plenty of use. The way they implement the gamepad in everything I've enjoyed a lot thus far. I'm absolutely smitten with zombi u at the moment, with Nintendo Land a great way to unwind after a stressful bout in zombi u. I bought a Wii a long while ago and never really liked it that much, I only really got it to play NMH 1/2 and Metroid Prime 3. The Wii U is definitely in stark contrast to that, I'm really having fun with it, and I'm actually glad I got one.
Also I currently have SMBU and Zombiu (and it came with Nintendo land)
Mario is really excellent, probably because I don't have the fatigue some others do. And I am also really enjoying zombiu. It's easily the best case of how to integrate that pad into a game. You literally cannot get an experience like Zombiu without that gamepad and that's really neat.
