So far, more than 70% voted, "No, I don't plan to buy one anytime soon"

Let's put this into perspective.

PS3, 360, Wii, PC. A lot of people play all of them, most people on Gamefaqs refuse to.. if the communities were evenly split (which i know they aren't) there would be 25% between just hte four main gaming devices (not counting any of the others like handhelds and older systems), and the mac).

then there are people who are on the wall waiting to see just what titles are in store for the wii u once it settles in. a lot of people will go for it when they see that. some might not, but it's what a lot of people are waiting for. once predictions and assumptions are assuaged we'll see what it's really, -truly- capable of.

70% not actively planning to buy the wii u is NOT a bad statistic at all. it sounds bad, but when you think about all of the reasons for it, it really isn't bad at all. me, i'm not buying it because i'm not a console gamer. i'm a PC gamer. but i also enjoy logic and reason, and i try to be fair.

the poll wasn't "out of all wii enthusiasts how many will buy the wii u." it was asking all of us.

Wow, I'm more surprised that 30% of buyers are stupid enough to get it day 1 when they can wait a year or 2 and get a newer and more perfected model... :/

Personally, I'll wait at least a year before I start digging information and will only buy the games I want in the meantime.

Nintendo just isn't the same since the gamecube and are not trustworthy in the quality of their hardware and games anymore...

The Nintendo Wii has issues? I've had my console since launch without any problems. Same with 3 of my friends I can think of off the top of my head. I also still have my launch PS3, though the disc drive is starting to go out on that.

Really the only console I've had issues with is the Xbox 360. Been through 4 of those.

This is the 2nd time I've seen this type of topic, in every console poll I've ever seen the majority always votes "Won't get one" or whatever, and considering Nintendo has loyal fan support form children and old people, so most people who are buying it soon are fanboys or have the money to spare
Enjoy a challenge?

The results are the same for every console poll.

I think it's because they put flat-out no as the same option for anyone wanting one in the future.

I voted "No I don't plan to buy one anytime soon" because I don't, but I'm not hating on the Wii U because I think it's cool. :D

The launch system polls are always like that, after all I'm pretty sure the Nintendo fans visiting these boards make up the smallest portion of the community.

Well, I won't get it because I don't have money, but even if I had, I'd wait until March, when Monster Hunter is released.

This poll was very dumb. There are 4 yes answers and 1 no. Hey poll-maker guy, what about yes in a few years/when it's cheaper/a new model comes in?

That's kinda harsh. I personally plan on planning to get a Wii U, just not for a while. And not at Wal-Mart; those stores make me sick!

What's so harsh about it? This system will sell out simply because that is what Nintendo does.
The people who come to this site on other hand won't drop money on a system unless there are 2 or so worthwhile games.
