What does everyone think of the Wii U?


Will it be worth buying? Will the touchscreen controler change gaming? Are you buying one?

Won't buy until a new Zelda title is released, then still might not purchase.

Multiplayer games have become much more fun over single player games.

I am curious. Thought I wouldn't be but all of a sudden I am. Could be legit. The problem is that it doesn't have any killer games launching with it. I want to try it though.

re: What does everyone think of the Wii U?


Got to mess around with it for about five minutes at gamestop.

I have to say it is a cool concept, but I just don't think it comes together.

The touch pad thing is the actual controller and it is absolutely huge. It gets really uncomfortable to hold. It isn't contoured to your hand it is just a rectangular pad.

I played the new Rayman on it, which was one of the playable demos, and you use the touch pad to do certain things. You would grab an obstacle with your finger or cut a rope so that Rayman can keep travelling through the level. Its a novel idea, but it really kind of takes away from the game because you have to constantly look away from your screen to this large cell phone sized touch screen.

There is no way to switch back and forth quickly making it visually cumbersome.

I'm sure there will be some cool ideas at some point, but from what I played I wasn't sold.

Only way I buy one is if they release a great 3D mario and zelda game for it and new super smash Bros

So basically another Wiimote.

I have a Wii, and there are some really good games for it, but if I can't use the classic controller I don't play the game.

I might end up buying a WiiU when the new Zelda comes out only if it is as easily moddable as the Wii.

gimmick.

I need to actually sit with one before I judge too harshly, but it feels very gimmicky.

This. Would also buy once a solid Metroid title or Super Smash Bros. title launches.

Hopefully, it will get games like Xenoblade and Last Story.

Will be a fun system for the general audience but the gamer snobs will call it a "kids system" just like they do with every Nintendo product now.

Not buying it now, but it looks like it has potential. If they had this game at launch, I'd be getting it ASAP: LINK

Everyone said this about the Wii too, but it won the console war. I'm just going to wait and see what they can give us from it. I'm not buying until its got a must buy game.
