Anyone buy the Wii U?
DarakuTenshi
I wasn't planning on it, but something inside of me snaps every time a new console comes out. If I don't have it and was not planning on getting it, but then see it sitting on the shelf at a store something makes me feel compelled to buy it. Anyway... does anyone else have one?

My user name is DarakuTenshi send me a invite.

ok so according to your post you bought it right? how is it? is it true that is inferior to the xbox 360 and the ps3? (i dont think so) so how do you like it till now?

Yes I did get it. My thoughts on it are still the same from when I went to that Wii U event. It's really neat, but it's not revolutionary. I wouldn't say it's inferior to the 360 or PS3 it seems to be on the same level... which would mean that Nintendo is still behind (hardware wise) in the generational leap. Then again who knows what the next Sony and Microsoft systems will hold?

i would use the excuse of my son wanting to play wii u but this time neither me or him have really seen anything too exciting, so no wii u for me yet.
hpw do you like it? any of the games really that good?

I'm definitely using the excuse of my son wanting to play the best version of Skylanders Giants.... Mario and ZombiU are just added bonuses Pfft

just saw an interview with a game-designer at EA and he said the Wii U is just a bit ahead of PS3 and 360 in terms of graphics and performance.

There's nothing on Wii U that excites me just now, I get the pad and the screen, it just doesnt seem that amazing to me. It more a useful feature than being revolutionary. but i would def like to try one out sometime, because i wasnt that impressed with the 3DS in the beginning but now i love it. So i am more than willing to be won round Smile

It's interesting that Nintendo are first to market this gen, whereas last time they were last - but still managed to outsell the other consoles!

Well I only got Mario and NintendoLand... I wanted it to be a family event for now. I plan on getting Zombie U next. I've heard it's a very underrated game.

I'm going to get one for sure, but there is nothing at launch that I need, so I'm gonna wait a bit. I'll likely crack and get one after the new year lol

I'm probably going to skip out on this console since Nintendo in screwing up majorly on several things such as:

Nintendo ID's being non-transferable. Since your digital purchases are tied to the ID, you'll have to send it in to Nintendo in case it breaks if you want to keep your purchases. Thanks Nintendo!

Not being able to use SD cards to save Wii U data. Sooner or later, the Wii U's internal memory will run out and you gotta find a way to store more of your Wii U stuff. Unfortunately, Nintendo made it so that you can't store Wii U data on SD cards at all. If you don't have an external harddrive, be prepared to dish out another $50-100 on top of $300-350. Question is, what harddrives do or don't work with the Wii U? If only Nintendo didn't cheap out on the internal system storage...

Having to do a system update when you first get the system. I heard you might be able to download the update in the background, but I'm not sure.

No word yet on whether or not the Wii VC games and Wiiware games will be on the Wii U eshop. It would really suck if the Wii U VC library has to start from scratch and the Wiiware library not returning.

Wii U gamepads not being sold separately in North America. Should one break, it'll have to be sent to Nintendo to get it fixed rather than just buying another one.


As for the games, there isn't much for me to say about the Wii U library other than the fact that there were A LOT of 3rd party multiplats. I'll give it a few months or so before passing judgement on the Wii U library.

I must admit that I question Nintendo's decision to use external USB drives instead of having an internal bay on the console itself. If it had been designed appropriately with this in mind from the beginning then I don't think the system would be noticeably larger.

It doesn't matter whether you go for the white or black system, the internal memory on both is pathetic. There's not enough room for one year's worth of downloadable games on the 32GB version, let alone five... Nintendo are essentially expecting you to use an external HDD.

Being able to plug a 2.5" drive straight into the console would be a much neater solution. It certainly removes any confusion over powering the drive from an external PSU or from another USB port. And obviously there's no wires or other extra boxes to have to mess around with.

Overall I think it's a very short sighted decision on Nintendo's part.

I already have multiple external HDD so I'm not worried about this. Besides I don't plan on ever buying games for the Wii U if they are available on disc. I think the idea of downloading retail games is dumb. 32GB is plenty for game saves and such, I doubt I will ever fill my HDD with saves and Apps.

No you can't download it in the background. Flipping 5GB update was crazy!

No word yet on whether or not the Wii VC games and Wiiware games will be on the Wii U eshop. It would really suck if the Wii U VC library has to start from scratch and the Wiiware library not returning.

You can access all of your Wii VC games via the Wii Channel. After you transfer you Wii account over to the Wii U you can download all the games that you did previously.

Wii U gamepads not being sold separately in North America. Should one break, it'll have to be sent to Nintendo to get it fixed rather than just buying another one.

Eventually they will be selling the separately. There is no need for them to do this right now though.

No, there really isn't much right now for the selection of games. They have either already been released on previous consoles or the games just are not that exciting. Though I do really want to play Zombie U.
 
bojan4o
zombie u is great it takes you right to the action without explaining you why there are zombies and the best is that when you die you die there is no turning back but you continue the mission with a different character

I want to get one so bad but I'm going to hold off because I already own all the other systems & I don't give them enough love as it is. I've got so many games that I need to play first.
But knowing me as soon as they release Mario Kart 8 I will probably give in Grin

Also, how is NSMB U? I've heard it is the closest Mario game to Super Mario World so far.

Taking a "wait and see" on this one. Some of the system's features are interesting but I've heard many complaints, mainly regarding the flimsily constructed feel of the tablet controller and it's short battery life. Thumbs Down

In terms of hardware horsepower, it barely outperforms current gen consoles. Hardly "next gen", but that's no big surprise to anyone who's been following the system's development.

Without a real "killer app" that's unique to the Wii U's interface and is a system exclusive, I don't see it being worth the investment right now. Perhaps down the line, something will change my mind about Nintendo's new baby enough to make me think about adopting...Hmm

Strange... not sure where you heard that from, but it's about as far from the truth than you can get. The Nintendo Gamepad has a nice weight to it and is very solid in construction.

As for the battery life I've not run into an issue with that yet either. I've played quite a bit. If I happen to get up to get food or use the restroom I just put it in the cradle so it can get a bit of a charge.

i agree but if anyone can make that game it will be Nintendo. I read that 70% of the games that sell well on Wii are by Nintendo (this is one of the reasons it's not that popular among third party publishers because it's harder for them to make money on the system) Nintendo actually admitted they made a mistake with the 3DS by thinking that 3D would be enough to sell it initially. In reality it only started selling in big numbers when the big games came out (almost a year later). So they need big games for the Wii U as soon as possible.

I'm quite enjoying Mario; I'm half-way through World 2 so far.

At the moment it's more like having an ber-Gameboy as I'm playing on the controller with, ahem, Star Trek on the telly. Which is no bad thing as I've always liked handhelds so I'm happy with this set-up. Obviously some games like ZombiU and Aliens are going to need a combination of TV and Upad, but for things like Mario or Rayman I'm happy playing on the controller.

Yeah Mario is fun. It reminds me of Mario 3 which was very nice... but... too easy and too short. It's not that killer app. Rayman is beautiful! I may get that game some day just to bask in it's colorfulness.

Last night I almost bought ZombiU, but I ran out of time, grr... I may still get it if I've got time today.

I've beaten Bowser!

There's a few secret exits left to find, I've discovered 6 or 7 out of 12, and I need to get all the Star Coins I've missed. Then there's the Star Road levels.... but I've completed the main quest Beard

Best Mario game in a long time. I wasn't overly impressed with Mario Wii and it was way too easy. It didn't present any sort of challenge until right at the end. Mario U however seems to be a return to form for Nintendo. The level design is fantastic and the difficulty level is what I expect from a Mario platformer.
