From E down, I posted those for people that may view this after it's already out, or by the time they can get it. I picked D; while it doesn't answer the question, I still said it 'cause I just checked the date and I'm a little surprised it's coming out in a few days. It just doesn't seem like it.

C. First time I won't have bought a system in 4 generations.

Not getting it for the foreseeable future. I got burned buying into the hype for the Wii, and the Wii U is looking mighty similar.

C. Fool me once Nintendo shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. Wii was just a gimmick and this will only get a year of support from third party publishers. I'm waiting to get both 720/PS4!

Not only am I not interested, but I also don't have the money and my dorm room is not conducive to setting up a television.

Those last few answers are just inviting people to troll your poll. Not that I would troll your poll. No sir.

i was playing a demo kiosk at my local Radio Shack and I have to say that I am not going to purchase the system. It isn't any more powerful than the four systems I already own (360, ps3, PC, IPhone 5) so the only difference is the controller. When I held the controller I was immediately put off, the thing is too wide, feels hollow and cheap, the sticks feel like the one used on the PS Vita, and the D-pad feels as inaccurate as the 360 pad.

Ultimately this system is no different than any other Nintendo system. You pick it up for the Nintendo games and, right now, there are no games worth purchasing the system for.

I'll end up getting one sometime next year. I really want to play Lego City Undercover and I'll want to play the next Mario and Zelda games.

Where's the Bayonetta 2 poll option?

#14 Posted by Eidderf (521 posts) -

Maybe a few years down the line when some of the bigger, more interesting first party titles are out and the price has dropped by a considerable amount I'll pick it up. Nothing about it particularly excites me so far, I don't really see what the new tablet control thing will do to enhances console games apart from being a good place for a map and a few extra buttons.

As someone who skipped the Wii, no. The tablet gimmick seems really dumb and its only a marginal upgrade over 360/PS3.

Also, Nintendo has never had a functional online system, so they're bound to fuck that up.

Maybe later once it's cheaper and it has a decent library of games. I'm in no hurry.

I think I'd rather spend 2 grand on a kick ass PC next generation than buy all the consoles again. I mean by the time they're all out it will be around that right?

You are missing the option: No, not sure if I will get it later or not. Which is me.

@NTM: I meant that people might think it funny to select an option that isn't even applicable yet. Mostly though, I was just joking around. I don't really think your poll will be the victim of mass trolling. "Trolling your poll," by the way, is the grossest thing I have had to say all day.

I don't buy a system until at least the second hardware iteration. That being said i'm not interested in the Wii U.

@Kerned: Ha ha, don't worry, I wasn't replying to you in a combative way, I guess you can say. I was just asking, 'cause I didn't think anyone would really do such a thing. And alright, nice :P

It's too bad so many people are so down on it. I'm getting it day one and am very excited. I hope once it comes out and gains some steam enough members will purchase it so we can trade Nintendo ID's and build a giantbomb community on the Miiverse.

It depends. I'm not going to totally write it off, but having bought into the wii hype I'm a little more apprehensive this time. Can't wait to see giant bombs take on the system next week.

I agree. I have all consoles and I loved my Wii.

My Wii U is coming in on monday and I'm pumped.

I voted C, which is a shame, because I still remember the days when Super Mario World and Super Mario 64 were launch titles. But that just isn't the case this time, and hasn't been for generations.

Up until a couple of months ago, I was all for it, but now I don't know any games I'm really excited for. New Super Mario Bros 2 burnt me out of the New Super Mario Bros series, so I have little interest in New Super Mario Bros U. I don't know... I'll probably watch the quick looks when they go up, and see how they look.

Nope, I'm not. I will probably end up buying it when a decent amount of games I want come out for the system.

I suspect most of these people didn't really like Nintendo games to begin with, and just bought into the hype for something they didn't really want in the first place.

I want a Wii U and I want it NOW! I'm not sure why I want it so bad...maybe it's just the hype of a new generation console...but, for whatever reason, I want one bad. I haven't bought a new Nintendo console since the N64 and I think I played all of 30 minutes of my friend's Wii, but I'm jonesing for the friggen Wii U! Fingers crossed, maybe I'll find it under the Xmas tree this year!

Picking it up tomorrow with a copy of New Super Mario Bros U.

Planning to pick up: Rayman Legends, Bayonetta 2 and Wonderful 101.

I hope this Wii U is better than the Wii was. That thing just collected dust on my entertainment center until it found it's way to a storage bin. I pretty much bought all the systems since the SNES, so no reason to break that cycle. The biggest disappointment I had with the Wii was the SD. Making your television stretch a 480 signal to fit the TV looked like shite.Controller has been charging for 2 hours now, and is still going. Controller feels real nice.

So I guess mildly excited. Curious how Assassins Creed 3 will look. I'll trade my PS3 copy in for a Wii U one if they fix the framerate and pop in with all the extra memory the machine has.

I owned every Nintendo system prior and was an early adopter of the Wii, but haven't touched the system in two years. My growing disinterest came out of a combination of lack of interesting games and getting fatigued with motion controls. Motion was rarely integrated in a compelling way and simply hasn't reached true one to one which means motion controls are as frustrating as they are innovative.

I was all set to wait on it until April, but I got home tonight at 10:50PM, booted up my computer and saw some Wii U news, and decided I wanted one now. I then walked two miles (no car) to Toys R' Us to see if I could get one, turns out they're not selling them until 8AM. So tomorrow I'm going to go see if there's any chance I can get one again... 
So maybe.
