Will You Buy the Nintendo Wii U?

Attention, all gamers! Nintendo has announced the Wii video game system's successor, the Wii U. The Nintendo Wii U will be released on November 18 in the United States with two versions. Gamers can purchase the Wii U with one controller for $299 or a deluxe version that comes with more memory, a gamepad charger, a stand, and a video game.

One of the biggest changes to this system, compared to the Wii, is the dual screen capability. Besides playing on a regular-sized television, gamers also have a handheld device with a 6.2 inch touchscreen, providing an enhanced multiplayer mode. It also allows gamers to continue playing solely on the handheld device in the event they can't use their TV.

According to Nintendo, there will be 50 Wii U game titles available by March, including "Assassin's Creed III" and "Call of Duty." For years, Nintendo has been criticized for appealing only to families and children, as opposed to all ages, but the Wii U looks like it will silence those complaints. In addition to better graphics, memory, and interactivity, the Wii U will also provide Nintendo TVii, allowing users to stream and record shows via YouTube, Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, and more.

    So there was no use of you in even commenting because you play PC. Go back to WoW or Guild Wars and leave the console users alone.

    When it comes down in price and after product reviews, I'll consider.

    How about you make your own mind up and not by a review you think will tell you the full truth.
  • Rachel critter171 2012/09/17 14:53:12

    You should never base an opinion off of one review, but when a product is consistently scored low for the same issues, that's a problem that worth considering prior to purchase.

    valid point but you also should play with it before you decide to buy it.

    Most definitely. I'm actually notorious for this. I'll haunt stores several times to play with a new gadget again and again, typically, before following through with the purchase. Most recently, when I was looking into an ebook reader, I, and this is a little embarrassing lol, bought about 4 or 5 different ebook readers and tested them all out at home. Made a pros and cons list for each of them, bugged my family and closest friends about them, and made a general nuisance of myself. Also ended up reading a ton of reviews and even watched some how-to videos. But, I'm quite happy with my ebook reader now (Sony PRS-T1), so it's definitely worth playing with something personally. Had I not, I probably would have gone with a Kindle or something right off the bat and would have ended up frustrated quickly (it's *much* easier to organize my content with the Sony than it was with the Kindle).

    So, you definitely have valid point too! =)

    ReviewS. Not just one, a majority. There's no use in putting out money on something if I end up not liking it, because that money won't be given back in full for dissatisfaction.

    you should know what you like and don't personally playing it is the best opinion possible to go by than someone else who may not like something yet you may like it.

    No, merely because I don't play enough video games to warrant getting a new console, especially when the Wii I have works perfectly. That said, I think this is a really nifty idea and I'm glad to hear that Nintendo is diversifying the Wii's game selection.

    Definitely not interested in this. Doesn't compare to the PS Vita whatsoever.
  • critter171 hilda 2012/09/17 13:22:00
    critter171
    why are you comparing a console to a handheld and speaking of ps vita its doing terrible.
  • hilda critter171 2012/09/24 02:00:22
    hilda
    The Wii U is a handheld. And have you even tried a PS Vita? Clearly not. No handheld compares to it. And for the amount you're putting on a Wii U, I rather put it towards a PS Vita.
  • Kevin V... hilda 2012/10/01 04:55:18

    The Wii U is not a handheld. It comes with a controller that has a built in screen. wii handheld controller built screen
    The box is the console.
  • hilda Kevin V... 2012/10/10 03:21:24

    You can play the Wii U without the console. I've read up on it and seen a few commercials for it (in use). So it is a handheld. Guess a controller too.

    yeah... but that doen't mean it's a handheld, it means you can play SOME games on the controller if someone else wants to do something else on the t.v.

    Looks like Fun and I know my family will like it. Plus it's backwards compatible so we can still use our Wii games.

    yep. I think it looks like fun but I have kids and we play family games on it. Nintendo has been a reliable system for my family since Sega stopped making systems.

    I already have a wii and Xbox 360. I hardly play Nintendo Wii games (Except for Fatal Frame, Light Gun games, and Resident Evil.....I've also got Rock Band), and have really been playing my Xbox. Nintendo has slowly and gradually been dying, Unlike Sega which simply had its heart attack. Meh.

    I didn't understand what you were saying :) but I get the main idea. Personally, I think Nintendo's attempts at online gameplay have failed MISERABLY, but their games are alright, just getting a little less... fun, each time. I'm saying Gradually they're dropping behind.
  • critter171 YourCom... 2012/09/18 22:46:46
    critter171
    ok now if you didn't understand why didn't you just say so? Nintendo online has been fine if you look at some games conduit,goldeneye, cod, mario kart, and brawl the others are the fault of developers not added to it.

    At least Nintendo has some creativity and all the old school fanboys are complaining. You sir, have earned a rave.
