[QUOTE="PhazonBlazer"]That's how I am :(

I'll probably get one around Christmas next year.

Badosh

Yeah, I have no clue why though, but whatever. Hopefully they won't be sold out for months, like some people are making it seem, hah.

Im sure you can get one the begining of next year.

I cant wait to see reviews and people opinions on wii u. There is going to be a lot of disappointed ppl. First review... and NG3 looks worse than current gen versions lol.

Who cares.It's a launch game.

What does that mean?

that's like basing the capibilities of the 360 off of those horrible ports of GUN and tony hawk: american wasteland

[QUOTE="ocidax"] Is only ONE game reviewed... Oh God.. Just waitocidax

I´m not refering to that one specifically but everything we´ve seen of WiiU games,exclusives and multiplats.

So. You think that the launch games on the Dreamcast was better? Because i don't think so.

You clearly don´t remember very well lol,games like Soul Calibur(look at Soul Blade on the PSX LOL),Sonic Adventure,Sega Rally 2,Trickstyle(compare that to Wipeout 3) or House of the Dead 2 looked way better than any PSX and N64 game(not to mention the gameplay videos of Shenmue that blew everyone away),and if you were refering at the launch lineup then you really don´t remember very well,it´s not by accident that the DC launch lineup is conidered to be one of the best ever of any console,if not the best.

The WiiU doesn´t even come close in any of these parameters,the DC felt like next gen when it came out and so did it´s games,that certainly isn´t the case with the WiiU,not even close.

Or Kameo and Project Gotham 3 which were lovely. One game proves nothing but can't just say "Meh, launch" and dismiss everything we see.

Char, if I plan on keeping my second Wii-U

What launch games aside from Zombi-U and NSMB-U would you suggest?

Animal-Mother
Uhm, honestly, I'd say those are the only two exclusives worth getting xD Nintendo Land looks like it'd be a fun party game, and apart from that, I was looking at getting Darksiders II for it, but yeah, as far as exclusives go, it's slim pickings at the moment. The launch window looks great though, so hopefully that will change soon.

I'm thinking my launch games buys will be: Zombie U NSMBU Nintendoland (coming with my Deluxe) and NG 3 (it seems like it's far better than it was on the 360/PS3 despite having some not so great looking graphical upgrades, which sucks, but probably didn't have time to focus on that.)

Ok, you are talking about graphics. Is true but I talk about variety and quality. NSMBWiiU, AC3, BLOPS 2, Zombie U, Bayonnetta 2, Tekken, Nintendo Land and Others. Just give time to devs to show the WiiU capabilities. I am waiting for Bayonnetta 2.

That would be great news! Hopefully Nintendo can patch their launch games eventually with some online support. I love local play but having that extra option would be nice.

Variety and quality wise the DC launch was incredible,it certainly looks better than the WiiU launch lineup,and Bayo2 isn´t a launch title,it´s a 2013 game.

Can't believe people are debating which console had the best launch lineup ever. Dreamcast > all ...unless the 720 launches with Dragon Age, Halo 2 Anniversary, a Forza, Fable 4 and a few other great third party titles. Even then, Soul Calibur > all.

Ya i'd say it does look like it has a strong launch line-up. I'm still on the fence. But once i start playing i'm sure it'll be awesome. If I didn't buy darksiders 2 on PC i would've bought it. But maybe i'll give black ops 2 a whirl.

Nope, the initial shipments are all sold out. If you want to, though, you can call your Best Buy and check in advance once it does launch.

Anyways, I'll take one if I can find one any time. Looking forward to ZombiU, NSMBU, and maybe some other random game I can't think of as of now on launch day.

Kind of focusing on getting rid of my PC backlog before then.

Thanks for the help, I have a reserve card for Target, but I don't know the reliability, and I have 18 month payment at Best Buy, guess ill wait until January.

I hope so for my sake haha.

It makes sense too considering that if they think they will haver a repeat of Wii (which I doubt in sales numbers, will still be respectable though imo) they should have the thought to make and ship more systems.

Then again... they could do the whole "anxious consumer" routine they did last time to drum up ppl. Maybe without the months of waiting though considering they probably underestimated still with the Wii.

I hope for your sake its popular enough and will have limited amount of units (and not very smart consumers on Ebay etc.) come after launch for that :P.

Especially for ppl buying more than one, would hate to lose money on the secondary system.

At least with one you won't have completely wasted money even if you don't like the sytem. It might have somethings for you, you never know :).

I don't mean to be an ass, but I hope noone is stupid enough to buy a system that retails for $300 for double that price +$50, I mean i want one really bad, but I'd much rather wait a month, than spend double what I can get it for if I just wait until January to March. I also find it really selfish(even if profitable) to take what could be someone else's Wii U, and sell it for double the price.
