I was excited for the Wii U when it was announced. It sounded like it would be more powerful then the PS3 and cheaper. I thought it would be a great system to bridge the gap between the current gen and the next consoles Microsoft and Sony released. But now if you believe the rumors it is probably slightly below a PS3 power wise and Microsoft may be rushing the next gen out in 2012. Wii U could be a generation behind the same year it is released and there are really only three reasons to buy one now. 1) You`ve only ever had a Wii and you`re ready to play real games. 2) You really love gimmicks or 3) You can`t get enough Zelda.
