I'm getting one next month.

#3 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (5414 posts) -

I'm going to wait for a few first party IP's before I consider getting one.

#4 Posted by KiLlerBLT (43 posts) -

I'm sure I'll eventually get one, but likely not until next holiday at the earliest.

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.

Yep.

#7 Posted by MildMolasses (3219 posts) -

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

#8 Posted by Clonedzero (4200 posts) -

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.

#9 Posted by TyCobb (1966 posts) -

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.

Will get one.

#12 Posted by Dixavd (1344 posts) -

I Picked "Not Yet" as I haven't decided firmly on either side yet. I want to see what they announce for Zelda on the WiiU and what Monolith Soft is working on since Xenoblade.

#13 Posted by kishinfoulux (2282 posts) -

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.

#14 Posted by Joeyoe31 (820 posts) -

Maybe later. Don't have the money for it right now.

#15 Posted by Turtlebird95 (2361 posts) -

Why are there so many threads asking me if I have or plan to buy a Wii-U? I can only answer "When the good exclusives are out" so many times dammit.

#16 Posted by AbeTheGreatest (132 posts) -

I'll wait and see what they do with their big franchises before I decide. The weakness of the online means that I'm gonna have a ps4 or xbox whatever along with it so I wont be getting one until after those come out too

#17 Posted by Ezakael (931 posts) -

I'll probably wait a year or so before I pick one up just like I did with the 3DS. See if there are any games I'm interested in.

#18 Posted by EquitasInvictus (2025 posts) -

I actually don't even have a Wii.

Ain't planning on getting a Wii U anytime soon, either.

#19 Posted by jdh5153 (1034 posts) -

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 don't plan on getting a wiiu. i don't know what it is. it just doesn't appeal to me i guess.

#21 Posted by Shinigamirap (2 posts) -

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.

#22 Posted by Vexxan (4618 posts) -

Skipped the original Wii and it's not looking good for this one either in my case. I'm a bit of interested in the Wii U than the Wii mainly because now it's not all about stupid motion controls.

#23 Posted by underworld2086 (42 posts) -

I want one so I can play bayonetta 2.

#24 Posted by EarlessShrimp (1633 posts) -

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.

Yep, and this is my review: http://fidgetwidget.tumblr.com/post/36673214473/my-wiiu-review

#26 Posted by pandorasbox (303 posts) -

Nope, don't feel the need to just yet. If ever.

#27 Posted by Vrikk (895 posts) -

I got one. And Scribblenauts for it.

#28 Posted by Ducksworth (660 posts) -

Going to grab it when either one of the following happens:

  • Price is $200 or lower for base model
  • There are at least three games released that I consider must have (current count = 0), one of them must be an original Zelda title
#29 Posted by Jrinswand (1703 posts) -

Negatory. I'm out of the console game, but even if I wasn't, I wouldn't be buying a Wii U.

#30 Posted by HerbieBug (4212 posts) -

hahahahahahahahaha *deep breath* aaaaahahahahahahaha

*ahem* the answer is no. :)

#31 Posted by Sackmanjones (4687 posts) -

I bought one. It seemed like it had lots of potential and I had the money to get it. Haven't owned a Nintendo console since.... Well since the NES. So hey guess who's looking forward to all those Nintendo games!

#32 Posted by CellBit (8 posts) -

Nope! I will eventually, but I don't usually buy consoles at launch. Nintendoland, NSMBU and ZombiU aren't really enough to justify the purchase just yet.

#33 Posted by Sackmanjones (4687 posts) -

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.

#34 Posted by HappyCheeze (93 posts) -

PC is my main source of gameage. But I've been thinking about getting a WiiU for something different like Zombie U and for nostalgia-bation on virtual console.

#35 Posted by Sackmanjones (4687 posts) -
@HappyCheeze Zombiu basically justified my purchase
#36 Posted by Peanut (953 posts) -

Yes, because I love GAMES! ALL OF THEM!

#37 Posted by FearMyFlop (100 posts) -

Yes! I bought this new add on to my Wii for myself for Christmas. Can't wait to open it alone on Christmas day!

#38 Posted by frankfartmouth (1016 posts) -

I'll get one as soon as I have the money and a couple more 1st party games come out. Maybe a year out at the most.
