Too bad the pro controller only work on a few games... It doesn't even work for a simple game like Super Mario U which is stupid. Oh and Rayman Legends has been delayed until September because Ubisoft wanted to go multi platform even thought the Wii U version was already done. There's a big controversy going on with Ubisoft right now because of it.

Don't think it's worth getting atm.

I mean look at this release calender for 2013:
http://ca.ign.com/games/upcoming/wii-u?filter=latest

Setting aside the multi-platform titles and HD remakes, there's not much there for 2013 besides maybe Pikmin and WiiFit that's unique to the system.
Wow, what a boring list (everything good is also on PS3/360) and Wind Waker remake again? Why not Majora's Mask or Windwaker instead? Anyone know if they are going to remake Xenoblade in HD? (X monolith project)

Wind Waker was never remade. I agree though I'd rather have Windwaker remade rather than Wind Waker.

Uh no Grimcurse it is more than that and I am not buying a new game from Ubisoft til they reverse their decision on releasing the Wii U version of Rayman Legends 7 months from now instead of the end of February. If they don't I will make sure any game I buy of theirs is used and many people are doing this too. In fact the money I was going to spend on Rayman Legends I spent on buying my son a brand new game that was not Ubisoft.

It also must be said that Ubisoft said the game was going to be exclusive to Wii U. They lied. I don't like liars.

Pro controller, is not a good deal as is not working in all games. What we have to do is wait some time until xbox get something new. Will be cheaper for sure.

I just don't see the point of spending $400 when it will be outdated in a years time with the next gen consoles...

For the same reason a lot of people enjoyed the original Wii. Graphics don't always make the games.

I'll admit, the release schedule doesn't currently look so hot right now, but chances are good, you're not buying the Wii U as your main gaming device anyway.

Lego City Undercover looks really fun and it comes out next month. That will be Wii U game #6 for me. I like the system.

I'll buy when there's a Mario bundle and a some exclusive games on the shelf. I don't expect the prices to drop, I think the margins are very tight.
I agree. Where is the New Super Mario Bros. Wii U bundle? That's the only one that would matter to me. Better to just buy a Deluxe Wii U and NSMB U. Zombi U isn't anything special, as is NintendoLand. Just pack the only good exclusive game you've got and be done with it, Nintendo.

$10 less and they need to slap that Nintendoland sticker right on there. I don't think ZombiU makes use of the Pro Controller, but whatever. It apparently works with RE Revelations, but then why would you use a Pro Controller and miss out on the Wii U-exclusive stuff like off-screen play, quick item select or maps on the uPad?

I like NSMBU, but Nintendoland is a great game. I've had more fun with it than Mario. There's a lot of variety. While it's really fun with friends (using Wiimotes), there are still a good amount of single-player content.

I loved ZombiU! Thought it was great.

It uses the pro controller when playing multiplayer.

Wait till Feb 20, SONY is going to announce PS4.

Wii U hardware has been analyzed. It has a better GPU than a 360. CPU however is modified Wii CPU ... Wii you heard it right... piece of garbage CPU is a modification of the CPU from GameCube.

Do not waste your money on a Wii U. There is nothing unique about it and I suspect with weaker CPU it will not / Never out perform PS3 / 360. This Hardware is worth 199 max.

Horrible Sony GUI has basically left my PS3 as the 4th choice in the house. Hate it. My son hates it too. With that said if Sony can improve that and maybe make their controllers a little more comfortable then the new Sony system might end up in my house at some point. The only reason we still have the PS3 now is it is our blu-ray player.

As for the Wii U yes there is something unique about it. Have you even played a game or heck a demo on it ? Play the Rayman demo on it and tell me it isn't different than another system. You do not know what you are talking about.

People generally buy Nintendo consoles for Nintendo made games, waiting around for the PS4 to be announced will not fix that. Also you're right about the hardware costing about 200$, however I don't think you added in the price of the tablet controller into that. Replacement controllers in Japan are selling for about 172$ atm, and probably will go for 150$ here when they start selling them.
