    I'll just wait a year or two like I usually do and get a better deal plus a handfull of decent titles to play off the bat. I've got more than enough to catch up with in the meantime. I hope they do a deluxe in white though?

    Sorry for long post in advance (they are always like this when i come late to the discussion) "Way too expensive for something that only contains 8 or 32GB. You'd need to shell out even more for an external HDD. I also have to ask why they didn't include an option to install an internal HDD, like with the PS3." It's SSD and they didn't want to make big grill out of WiiU with normal HDD's sticked inside. And for those who "whine" about WiiU not pushing grafx's past PS360 at launch. How much better it has ever been when old gen switches to new gen. And if AC3 looks as good/or better on WiiU than on PS360 for launch game versus consoles that have been around for 5-6 years, i'll say it is a good sign. And for console cost: (i hope i can post link to other sites) *ttp://gamasutra.com/view/news/177337/Sizing_up_Wii_Us_price_tag_against_history.php#.UFPcOY1lTz0 And remember nowdays every thing just keeps getting pricier, so no electronics are any different. And also remember MS and Sony selled their consoles at LOSS from the beginning for how many years. And if you wanna play with PS3 + Vita, you need to buy the Vita (and how much does it cost),same with 360 (i don't know if theyll release something for 360 in regards of Smartglass) And also for the people "whining" about consoles power. IF you LOOK sales in last three gen, the least powerful console won. "Yeah the Wii U is WAY to expensive (especially sense the Wii U is pretty much twice as powerful as the Xbox 360 and PS3 and the fact that the 8th Gen consoles from both Sony and Microsoft will most likely sell for double what the Wii U does now" And how are they gonna do that, i wonder. If they wanna omph with graphics like they did with Xbox-->X360 nad Ps2-->Ps3, those consoles are gonna cost a frtune compared to WiiU. "So I'm not saying that the Wii-U is trash or a waste of money by no means, it has some cool features, but it's far from being "cheap" if you think of how much it's specs compare to seven year old hardware. Unless of course just the controller makes up for everything in your eyes. So before telling others to stop "bitching" please research as well and stop bitching about bitching. " Like i said before, if new console can rival or surpass console that have their architecture played around for 5-6 years graphically then don't see any problem there. And those inflation prices are about right, so... "Nintendo's history with consoles and third-party developers over the past decade tell me that's not gonna happen." And how it is possible to sell those quickly for Wii-ported games selling like hot cakes compared to good Nintendo developed games. "You guys are so stupid nintendo revealed you can hook up ANY EXTERNAL" And same was with PS3 launch. "I will always buy Nintendo's consoles at launch, but unfortunately I'm still sceptical of its launch window. Bayonetta 2 is the only game I actually care about. I mean, come on, the Wii launched with Wii Sports and Twilight Princess! There are no proper first party launch games (though I don't remember if Pikmin 3 will be at launch--not that I care). " And now when Nintendo is giving 3rd parties a time to sell their games when there aren't that many "big" Nintendo games at launch people still "whine" about it. (sorry, that came your too strong) "Anyway, do you get anything special at all for purchasing day one? Or did I miss something?" What did you get when you buyed your PS360 ?

    Just had add this here too: *ttp://gonintendo.com/?mode=viewstory&id=185453 *ttp://gonintendo.com/?mode=viewstory&id=185428 Hopefully there aren't this stupid people around here :P

    I created an account just to say how stupid you are/sound with this comment you made :)
  • Sami Aaltonen - September 17, 2012 6:50 a.m.

    Explanation please. Because you made account just for this, it seems that you are either badly butthurt or stupid.

    "Like i said before, if new console can rival or surpass console that have their architecture played around for 5-6 years graphically then don't see any problem there. And those inflation prices are about right, so.." Rival means that its specs can only compare to seven year old hardware and will be lost in the dust shortly after the new consoles launch, so I'm not sure at what point your trying to make. The hardware is seven years old and games are needing better specs to improve many things like AI, physics, multiplayer cap, and more. That's why specs are important for gaming for many, but this of course is subjective. You have to remember the target consumer that Nintendo targeted last time; Seniors, children, men and women for the aerobic aspects, parents, and lastly and at dead last: adults and teens. The target audience (first couple I named mainly) is one of the most technological ignorant consumers you can target, so of course specs, first party support, and things would not matter. This isn't a bad thing of course, but how do you think that will turn out years down the road? And no, those inflation prices are not right, look for yourself. "What did you get when you buyed your PS360 ?" I got nothing for my Xbox 360. Does Wii-U early adopters? Nope, I could from what I understand wait two years, get a Wii-U, and get the discounted digital sales just the same as someone who buys it on day one. So I went and found my answer for myself. On a side note, you need to restructure your post. I don't care about the bad spelling and grammar, but bad structure kills me.

    Third-Party*

    This sort conversation i have always wanted on boards where people are seeing things from different aspects and they at least explain themselves. Yep, those specs aren't that important to me, because i always handle those "heavier" games on pc, but Wii made great local multiplayer-platform and WiiU isn't gonna be worse.(It plays Wii's games) I tried this inflation calculator now that you mentioned that those prices aren't right and yes those prices are right. *ttp://www.bls.gov/data/inflation_calculator.htm I'll have to say that you are right about that you could buy it when two years are up. But i'm sorta Nintendo fanboy, i have been buying Nintendo consoles at launch from N64 --> Wii.(after i could get to the work in summer or later in real work) (thank god for internet these days that you can read reviews for games before buying) And sorry for if there are grammar and spelling errors, English is my 3rd language. And for the structure of the text, i did in haste.
  • ParagonT - September 18, 2012 8:43 a.m.

    It doesn't really matter if people are "fanboys" (I seriously hate that word although), but I do think people should accept faults within certain things. I am a avid PC and Xbox player, but that doesn't mean I won't accept the fact that I am getting shafted on certain things from them. Wii-U is most likely going to be a blast, but as a consumer I think people put too much emotion into their reasoning behind purchases. Buying the Wii-U is no problem for me and a personal choice for anyone who wishes to buy it, I just don't like people not being honest.
  • ParagonT - September 18, 2012 11:32 a.m.

    To add, don't worry about the spelling and grammar, but structure is important in any language.
  • whocares202 - October 3, 2012 8:36 a.m.

    I made an account as well, but it is to help you identify your key flaws. First of all, what in the hell is a PS360? Are you talking about when a PS3 mates with an XBOX 360 or something? Unbelievable. Second, sentences don't start with "and". You must have started 20 fragmented sentences that were barely literate. Please look into phonix 4 kids, to hone your language skills. Everyone will greatly appreciate when you can communicate like a normal human being.

    The only game that is worth on the wii u is Zombiu
  • amilia-perez - September 15, 2012 12:09 p.m.

    Way too expensive for something that only contains 8 or 32GB. You'd need to shell out even more for an external HDD. I also have to ask why they didn't include an option to install an internal HDD, like with the PS3. In any case, I will not be buying until I find out what will be in the 720 and PS4, if I buy it at all. If those consoles leave the Wii U for dead, then I'm going to pass. But if they are comparable in hardware (I sure hope not) then it will be down to pricing of those consoles, and what kind of games they will have. There is no chance I'm buying a U this holiday.
  • Unoriginal - September 15, 2012 12:06 p.m.

    First Nintendo Concole that I won't buy at launch. Not enough game content to justify it yet.
  • ob_mason90 - September 15, 2012 10:24 a.m.

    I'm thinking about getting one but if the rumors turned out to be true about the next generation dropping in 2013 then it would be a big middle finger for people like me who can't afford to buy two new consoles in the same year(from late 2012 to late 2013)since i'm still a college student so I'm still confused if I should buy it or shouldn't.
  • Moondoggie1157 - September 15, 2012 8:39 a.m.

    Bayonetta 2 is the only reason I would ever pick up this console... Not to sound cynical, but I haven't seen enough from the console to be excited, at least nothing that doesn't come off as a gimmick to me. The Wii was really fun, but I would never have bought one... I used my brothers because he's younger and naive. I'm hoping he buys this system so I can play Bayonetta and Zombie U (if it turns out). Aside from that, this system is a big miss for me, I've just been able to get into my PS3 back catalog so I'm gonna have quite a few games to hold me over until a new generation... Which I'll not be able to afford for a while anyways... So yea... I dunno.
  • whocares202 - October 3, 2012 8:42 a.m.

    "I used my brothers because he's younger and naive" Sinister prick, I hate people like you. Fork over some dough you cheap bastard.
