I've actually just got a Wii U today, unfortunately my copy of Super Mario 3D World hasn't arrived yet but I'm really looking forward to playing it over Xmas.

An honest question for Wii U owners, is the console worth the price? I was thinking about getting one but I'm still on the fence.

Seriously how hard was it to choose a top Wii U game? I mean theres only like 12 exclusive titles to choose from. I'm not trying to bash on the Wii U as I enjoy mine pretty well but man, this console gets no 3rd party love.

They are actually aiming at 9 million units sold after this holiday? Lol... Somehow it's suppose to make MORE THAN DOUBLE the sales it's done for a whole year including last years holiday? Good fucking luck Nintendo..

Can you actually nominate the only game made for this console?

If there were a game that'd make me get a current gen (8th gen) console, it'd be Super Mario Wii U.

As far as "core" games? That's what my PC is for.

3D World may not be as innovative and groundbreaking as Galaxy, but it is the definitive standard for multiplayer platformers of the generation. The Wii U is shaping up to be a great console :D

As much as i think there's been a drought of wii U games, this ones a no brainer for wii U, GameSpot love this thing!
And you know what... I'd put my money on this as game of the year because i haven't seen many other 9's on any other systems, that and Zelda on 3ds

@DaneGamerWith 220k sells in November(US), I don't see them having a chance they needed a massive bump in US sells to stand a chance... If they just done alright in November at least they would have come respectably close but as of now 6 million would be pushing it. Given the releases they have left and current sell are around 4.6-.9 they should be able to hit a little over 5 million... 

They need some major announcements this coming E3 if they want to beat the Gamecube... New IP, bring back some dead franchises(F-Zero, Star Fox), and Metroid. Zelda is nice and all but they need something unexpected...

@Xyekenvort Yeah it's got the potential, sadly the company can't execute said potential with their ridiculous anti-3rd party policies..

@cousinmerl I'm actually think about picking it up, and the only Mario games I've played are Super Mario 3 and New Super Mario Bros.

@BoogieL0ve god the internet is ridiculous these days. everybody rushing in to insult another in hopes of being seen as 'hilarious'.

for me I'd want to see a few other titles that aren't just Mario themed games to want to purchase the system.
Still waiting on a decent metroid or earthbound game for the system.

But hey! if you love mario 3 go for it! I'm sure there's some pretty good deals for those systems.

@cousinmerl I feel like if they ever make an Earthbound title, it'll be on 3DS instead of WiiU.
