    I don't need 5 reasons to wait, just the one. Zelda. Until I see some pearly screenshots of that pointy eared gimp in HD its a no go!! Also interested to see how they will do a Mario Kart game with the Gamepad. I don't wanna be using the touchscreen to be flicking items with a hand that should be steering or pushing down the acceleration! A pixelated driver could crash!

    Wii U's an interesting piece of technology, but it isn't for everyone.
  • avantguardian - September 21, 2012 3:15 a.m.

    yeah, thanks. that "controller" is an abomination, and should be burned on a stake.
  • tehtimeisnow - September 21, 2012 1:06 a.m.

    here's that reply you were looking for oh lonely one! is this enough to wank to? gonna cum all over my response? or does it require some obligatory insult about your fake apple fanboyism? Seriously though.. your pointless, pathetic, retarded, irritating, spasticated, revolting, putrid and horrific existence is as irrelevant as the iPhone 5.
  • Turtman - September 21, 2012 12:42 p.m.

    You actually bring up valid pointz
  • Thedigitalg - September 22, 2012 11:51 a.m.

    DO NOT REPLY - OBVIOUS TROLL I'm going to keep doing this until the uber-noobs that can't figure out you're a troll stop replying. Jesus Christ, have any other you been on the internet before?

    "It is, because... You can finally put your Wii away (but can keep the accessories)" Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the Wii U not backwards compatible with Gamecube games? I enjoy dusting off classics like Tales of Symphonia or Rogue Leader from time to time, not to mention the Pikmin games. I have a modest library of Gamecube games on my shelf, and this issue is what's keeping me from taking my Wii in to Gamestop for the the Wii U discount.
  • Fizban - September 21, 2012 12:05 a.m.

    They've already stated it is not compatible with Gamecube Discs (although I'm sure they'll enjoy letting you buy them for download).

    I am a HARDCORE Nintendo fan, but their business model basically REQUIRES you to wait a year before the consoles get really good. Either a price drop (Most times), second iteration, or flagship title release(Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Starfox etc. etc.). So I wont be getting this until black friday of 2013.
  • Fuzunga - September 20, 2012 7:03 p.m.

    I will actually be buying the Wii U version of Assassin's Creed 3. And I agonized for a while whether to wait for Darksiders 2 (should have) but ended up getting it on the Xbox because of THQ's season pass offer.
  • AqueousBoy - September 20, 2012 5:30 p.m.

    I've bought every Nintendo console at launch since the SNES... so this will be the first time in over 20 years I HAVEN'T picked up a new Nintendo. It feels weird, but I just can't justify spending the money right off the bat this time around.
  • taokaka - September 20, 2012 4:47 p.m.

    If I was to get one it wouldn't be till after E3 next year.
  • Smash_Bro - September 20, 2012 4:45 p.m.

    Console launches are truly magical, especially if it's a Nintendo console. Their fans are among the most loyal and loving, and it's a great feeling to be in line among so many people who share your level of excitement. Sure, the launch titles aren't mind-blowing. I'll admit that the Wii launching with Twilight Princess skyrocketed my general launch title expectations. But how often does a new console start out with a mind-blower? Devs have to find all the hidden talents of a new console before investing endless hours and big $$ on a triple-A title. Look at Brawl--now, that game was well worth the wait.

    I'm digging reading all of these positive Wii memories. It's certainly left my 360 gathering dust for long periods of time. I digress. There's one odd thing in this story, concerning the competition; "They're going to be a hell of a lot more powerful than the Wii U when they launch." Considering how conservative they'll need to be with costs, the graphic ceiling approaching, and some reports that the Wii U is only 20% less powerful than Microsoft's next... I honestly believe we'll have a more traditional situation, where the least powerful machine is still in the same ballpark as the most powerful, and most popular dictates the tech behind most of the third party games. Just my opinion, but it's logical. Regardless, worst case, we get a slick machine that plays Nintendo's and some really great third party games? That's always a good buy. ;)

    "It isn't, because... The launch line-up isn't THAT good" Quit reading after this... troll harder. I actually refrained myself from playing Arkham City and ME3 just for the Wii U releases and saying Mario U is going to suck is just plain trolling. Yall claim to have played both ZombiU and NSMBU and liked them so how can you possibly make that a category... also Pikmin 3 and the Wonderful 101(I think that is the name)... that is all.
  • RonnyLive19881 - September 20, 2012 2:34 p.m.

    And yes I want to play COD:BLOPS 2 on the Wii U... the tow players getting their own screen is genius Lol
  • BladedFalcon - September 20, 2012 2:40 p.m.

    Well... first, just because YOU waited for those games doesn't mean that the majority of gamers did or will. So while it doesn't apply to you specifically, it still could apply in the general sense. Secondly... Even if the exclusive first party games all turn out to be really good, it's still not as rich and varied of a launch line up as the Dreamcast or the SNES's linu-up, so there's reason to be skeptic on that front.
  • talleyXIV - September 20, 2012 3:02 p.m.

    I don't understand the comparison to SNES and Dreamcast honestly. I don't think when the Xbox 720 or PS4 comes out someone is realistically going to compare the launches to the SNES or Dreamcast... simply because that is strange. Those consoles came out over 10 and 20 years ago, why would anyone say "This console's lineup is awful, I get Nintendo Land and not Super Mario World with the console." Just kind of a weird thing and this line up is actually really good. I think a good lineup is one that offers 3 games that anyone could play and really enjoy. And by that I mean 3 games for each individual person. For me, I am excited as hell for Pikmin 3, and for bonuses I'll get Nintendo Land and the fantastic looking Zombi U. For some other guy, he might want Black Ops 2 and Mass Effect 3, and Raymand Legends. Seriously 3 games is all you really need at a console's launch. That is $180 and if that isn't a lot to you, you should just buy the console because you are so ridiculously wealthy. 3 games can last a long time too. Had the Wii's best 3 games been launched all at the time, people would be content for at least a year. Skyward Sword took me a couple of months of on and off playing to beat. Super Mario Galaxy 2 has no foreseen end to me, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl has kept me playing for four years. If any of their first party titles are like that and I am sure Pikmin 3 and Super Mario Bros. U will be (Plus Nintendo Land for mini game fun in between games) , I feel like people should be pretty happy.
