This summarises my thoughts about the Wii U perfectly. While it looks like a very competitive console (with regards to the current generations, that is) it just doesn't tickle my fancy. For some reason, the only real stand out feature about it is the fact that there's a "Nintendo" branding on it. Yes I'm aware of the supposedly intuitive controller, but I really don't see it as that big of a deal - and certainly not a selling point - for the Wii U. Like others have stated, I shall wait to see what the console is like once the majority get their hands on it and which games are released for the console specifically (did I hear Bayonetta 2 as an exclusive game?). If it proves to be a good, worthwhile buy then I shall go ahead and comply but I would be surprised (pleasantly at that, however) if it does turn out to be.
