I have a Wii U console for $192 after PM and a bunch of $5-$10 Wii U games and I still don't want it... well I'll play around with it for a bit this week then trade in the games and return the console within 30 days. but I already finished most of those games (batman, black ops 2, ac3) already on other platforms.

I used the console for less than an hour yesterday and hated it. I packed up everything and returning tomorrow. I haven't opened any of the $10 games. I will stick to my PS3.

More satisfied customers. LOL

Nintendo: Problem? what problem? Everything is perfectly fine! *building burns down around Iwata in background*

Yes honestly so far it's a big stinker, even my children think it's bad. If Wal-Mart's policy allows returns I might well take advantage of it.

The killer is how much of an eternity it takes to shuffle between menus.

The software is so sluggish and it took over 1 hr just to download the update. Also the screen would always say out of range when I went into the next room not 10 feet away from the console. Downloaded a demo of NBA2K13 and played it on the tv, the lag was so bad. The hardware and software are such a joke. Playstation is ages ahead of Nintendo in all regards.

So true, this is abominable, I have never used anything like this. So long.

This is what has shocked me the most. I got one for my sister's kids for Christmas, they weren't excited at all, ok chalked it up to maybe just confusion over the fact they already had a Wii. Since then I occasionally ask and apparently they just don't care much about it. And yes the system overall is very slow, load times, menus, settings, etc. It's hard to comprehend how slow it is until you actually use one, and then you're like woah this is not what I expect from a device like this nowadays. Before that update awhile back, it was insanely slow :) .

you do realize the response time for the Vita/PS4 combination versus the Wii U is huge right? I can't remember the numbers but if your playing a 1st person shooter have fun with that.

The reason for this is simple....the Wii U was built with the controller in mind....on the PS4 making it work with the Vita was just an afterthought. If its a gimmick you might want to explain to me why Sony felt they had to copy the gimmick. I have it and i love it...it just doesnt work for every game but thats fine...its another option.
You do realize Sonys "afterthought" is a MUST for all PS4 games (except those that require the camera), right? Like the Wii U, all processing is done on the console and sent to the Vita, I'm not sure where you're getting the idea that the Wii U has a latency advantage here. Sony is touting this as a major selling point, I highly doubt they're going to push out a turd.

Scanned in at 149.99 at Target when I went to price match, looks like they are clearing it out too maybe. This is what it scanned in as, didn't have to price match.

I had the kid scan it on the phone and he said $299.99; had a second location in another city scan it = $299.99 also.
