    I really don't know if I want one, because I'm skeptical of a tablet controller. I don't think it's intuitive to have to look down at what you're holding for stats or whatever because that distracts you from the screen. This isn't like with a DS, when you hold both screens to your face. This is something you hold below and you can't see two screens at once.

    I'm not as into gaming as I once was, though, so that's also a part of it. I really don't see myself buying a new console because there haven't been many new games that I've enjoyed. Not even Skyward Sword has impressed me... am I outgrowing the direction gaming is heading in?

    Have you had chance to look into the games that are coming out for it? Are you still on the fence or are you 'gun-ho' about getting one?
    I'm still waiting for better games and a price drop

      It cost about the same as a PS3 and Xbox 360, and the games are going to be just as much as well. I don't forsee a price drop since its components are on the same level as Sony and Microsoft's game consoles.

      *just checked Wal-Mart's online prices*

      OMG LOL! That's way off XD We already have the price estimates at work and they are way lower than that.

      Super Mario Bros. U Walmart Online $71.95
      Super Mario Bros. U Toys R Us Online $59.99

      $12 difference. So much for always low prices XD

      But ya, its supposed to rival the PS3 and Xbox 360. From demos they shown, its possible that it does do that. So its worth its current price...which isn't too much higher than the Wii according to what I last saw.

        Many are skeptical towards the Wii U: and I'm not surprised. The controller is clearly unprecedented, which excites some yet worries many. To be honest, however, I am excited to try out the Wii U myself. I know that Nintendo has many new things to offer their customers, and what has been presented so far is quite interesting.

        But really, who isn't afraid that this tablet will ruin the experience people have when playing multi-platform games? What I am most worried of is this controller making multi-platform games such as Call of Duty and Arkham City awkward to play. Sure, Nintendo offers Xbox-like pro controllers, but in the end that means spending more money. Nonetheless, I look forward to playing the Wii U.

        I thought this might be an interesting read for people who are wondering about the Wii-U ports:

        http://uk.ign.com/articles/2012/10/12/a-guide-to-wii-us-ports

        Ports that this article talks about are as follows:
        • Mass Effect 3
        • Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition
        • Ninja Gaiden III
        • Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
        • Darksiders II
        • FIFA Soccer 13
        • Assassin’s Creed III
        • Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition
        • Call of Duty: Black Ops II
        • Skylanders Giants
        • Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two

        Is anyone excited for this?

          I've already got Tekken Tag for the PS3 and while the Mushroom mode looks pretty cool, it's not enough of an incentive to get it for the Wii U. I don't really play any of the other games so no comments there.

            I had a play of the Wii U this weekend, and while the controls are better than I imagined, the launch games themselves aren't massively up to scratch in comparison to the launch games of other consoles. It's definitely confirmed my suspicions that waiting is going to be the way to go when it comes to the Wii U.

              I can't blame anyone for being skeptical. I for one am excited about it, but most of us will let things roll out before we buy it. But on their games, I think they have gotten back in business after Pokemon Black and White 2! As long as I get my Virtual Console, I'm happy.

              I'm kinda disappointed in the slightly lacking set of launch titles myself. The only title that really grabs my attention is ZombiU.

                1080p? About time, Nintendo. Seriously, an emulator can play your Wii games in HD, but the console can't? -.-

                On topic: I won't be getting it for a variety of reasons, but mainly because of Nintendo's move to digital distribution. I live in rural Ontario with 0.50MBps Internet that's getting slower by the day, how am I supposed to get any games? :(

                One of my relatives is getting a Wii U, So I don't need to purchase one myself. To be honest, if I was actually purchasing the Wii U, I would wait until the release of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate in march. Apart from that game - the system seller for me - I'm not interested in any of the games being released for the system, bar Rayman Legends. That game looks amazing as a follow up to my favourite game of last year.

                It's nice to see Nintendo adding a few good and innovative features to their home consoles, and while the Wii wasn't my main console of 7th generation (That would be the PS3), I still felt it was a quality system that dared to be different - although it's software lineup was plagued with shovelware and lacked HD tv support.

                  All games are also in CD form. No worries.

                  It made me laugh they went on about ZombiU being for the Wii U, then said it would be going on PS3 and 360.

                  I saw the Wii U at the weekend and it didn't set any burning desire to order one; just didn't get me excited for it. A lot of the people using it looked very confused, but can't base the consoles performance on people who had just been given the controller! XD

                  It doesn't seem they have learnt with the Wii that you NEED good release games or it is going to be a rough release. :/

                  I think Nintendo made the right choice to delay some first day release games. While you do have to wait a bit longer, you won't get bored of the Wii U too quickly that you have to wait ages for another game to be released.

                    They retracted that and ZombiU will only be on Wii U because it is the only system with the touchscreen on a controller "ready".

                    But I do think the Wii U has some good titles. The library is already better than the Wii's. Even Pachter acknowledged that the library of games is wonderful. It just needs more exclusives. Bayonetta 2 was a good step, but they need more.

                    Eh, it's not that weak a start imo. ZombiU will do very well imo, and stuff like Mario is better than say what the 3ds got as well. And releases soon after too like Pikmin 3 for at least some countries. So I don't agree with statements like they haven't learnt or whatnot; it's not booming with lots of new releases that won't suck, but there's stuff there, and stuff coming soon after.

                      So far, not impressed. I could have bought it to play some third party titles (AC3, Black Ops 2, Mass Effect), buuuuut i just bought a really cheap PS3 w/ps2 emulation. So until they announce the first party titles I'm looking for (Zelda, Metroid, Smash Bros....) I will not be interested. The first party titles are the only reason I have my original Wii, and they are by far better than any other games imo.

                        So excited about Wii U. Less than three days! Having gone hands-on over the summer at the Wii U Experience, I'm so psyched.

                        Well it's out in North America today. Anyone got one?

                        From what I heard from people who bought one:

                        The GamePad is really light and very comfortable and easy to carry.
                        EShop has a very strong selection of retail games.
                        Internet browser runs smooth and is better than the Wii's browser.
                        GamePad is required for the full experience.
                        Portability with GamePad is good, but has some problems with disconnecting but reconnects easily.
                        Can easily connect to 3DS and transfer your Miis to Wii U.
                        Has a good selection of launch day titles.
                        Though they say it has problems such as the the initial setup and configuration takes a really long time.
                        MiiVerse has constant system errors.
                        Tons of updates.

                        Though the system is still new so some of the problems will likely be fixed from time to time.
                        I'm still pretty impressed with it though so I'm getting one to see for myself. I like the fact you can keep playing even when the TV is not on. That's basically the one thing that convinced me to get one.

                        Yeah. I've heard that the update is 5GB in size. And that it takes almost an hour on a fast internet connection to update it.

                        My Wii U finally has an ETA. :D

                        It'll be here on Wednesday at the earliest, a week from Tuesday at the latest. Hopefully it comes on Wednesday, since I'll be out of town next weekend to attend my cousin's wedding.

I definitely can't imagine me getting it in time for this Christmas... maybe not even next Christmas, if there aren't many great games for it.
                        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.
