.....bought a WiiU at the weekend. Not for me as such but for the wife ( mainly ) and kids. Actually quite impressed to be honest. Picked up Nintendoland and Rabbids with the bundle and Mario ( for the wife ) plus a couple of Wii games like Mario Kart.
So far it has been a big hit. As a family ( wife, 4 kids, eldest's gf and me ) spent almost all day yesterday playing Nintendoland. Haven't heard so much laughter and screaming in a long while as occured playing Mario Chase - silly really since, as most of you know, we all game a fair amount so being amused by such a simple game.......all good though!
laters fellow gamers
I don't know if I'll be getting the console myself since I've set my sights on the PS4, but if there were a price drop, I might think about getting it.
@Avenger1324 Well I doubt I'll play it on my own - but for some great family time it seems to be doing the trick!
personly i think the the wiiu is just a fixed verson of the wii so as a wii owner its not worth buying for me but some of the new games look good but manliy im pissed bayaneta 2 is going to be a wiiu exclusive bayaneta wasent evan on the wii but if you own a wii its woth it
@benleslie5 I agree to be honest. Just because the casual market will be happy to stick with what they have
I'm disappointed in the Wii U. I don't like the resistive touch screen, And the user interface is slow (although Nintendo said an update is on the way). They desperately need third party support.
@ChiefFreeman I think the touch screen works well - but they definitely need some big games ( as does the PS Vita to be honest! )
