Yeah I wanted to be, but I guess they ended in in like 2 days or something. What one are you getting? I reserved the black one w/ Nintendoland, which looks awesome by the way.

What games did you pre-order?

Sucks that you can only get one video controller at launch/none of the games will use two controllers yet. Gonna be amazing when it actually happens though.

I'm thinking of trading in my PS3 but I don't wanna lose blueray and also NCAA doesn't existon the Wii U for some reason. It's a catch 22 because that's the only game I play on PS3. Wut do?

I need to sell my Wii before it's worthless. I want the Wii U. It's backwards compatible with Wii games, correct?

I wouldn't do it until Zelda comes out, honestly (if you're into that). I'm sure the price on Wii U will drop significantly in 6-12 months and all those games will still be there. Mario will be cool but nothing new. The zombie game I'm sure isn't as good as whatever zombie games exist on ps3 already.

Of course, this is coming from a guy who doesn't know much about video games. I stand by Nintendo and have owned every one of their systems since NES. But I am not so dedicated that I need it the day it's released.

My personal plan is to buy this next spring/summer when it's cheaper and the new Mario Kart and maybe Zelda is out.

How often do you watch movies? I personally love my ps3 so I would never trade it. I'm not a big Wii fan. Keeping it for 1 game seems crazy if you're gonna play the Wii all the time, but not having a DVD player would suck I think.

yeah thats it - the only blurays i own are the ones in the star wars boxset, but obviously it'd be dumb to own them and not be able to watch them.

Had no intrest in the Wii either. right now im debating between the WiiU and PS Vita. Probably gonna go with the Vita bc its portable, can cross formats and the games for the most part are not childish. The WiiU looks really cool though. Ill probably get it for my girl at Xmas.

I would not get rid of my PS3 if I were getting a WiiU. I don't even play my PS3 that much but I keep it bc it's a nice system to have for other purposes. I think XBOX is the best for games but as a total system there no comparison to the PS3.

This is all gonna come down to what kind of games do you like to play. It's always been that way for Nintendo and other systems.



lol @ talking shit on nintendo when the last thing you played was gamecube.

Yeah Gamestop where you live might still be doing them, but even if they aren't you can be put onto a wait list where they just call you when they get one for you, one that they keep back for you and don't put out on the floor.

walked into Toy's R Us and they had these....giving it to my kids as a "family" gift for Christmas.

Question....do the old Wii controllers work with this or do I have to buy specific ones for the Wii U?

the wii u just uses normal wiimotes, but they have to be motion plus i guess. they have the new controller though the one that looks like a 360 controller, not the gamepad, too.

fuck i wish the people on here who got these things would come in here and talk about it. ssssshhhhhheeeeeiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt
