Too many ports and outdated hardware aside, the launch library for the Wii U largely consists of AAA games. If you only owned a Wii this generation and never played games on a PC, Mac, Xbox or Playstation, then the Wii U is a boon. Also, you may need to go read up on your video game history. Specifically, the Atari Lynx, Sega Game Gear, Nokia Ngage, Atari Jaguar, Sega CD, Sega 32X, Sega Saturn, Philips CD-i, Panasonic 3DO, Bandai Pippin, Playstation 3 or the Nintendo Virtual Boy.

360 by far... the worst in history. Went through 5 of them.. never again a Microsoft system.

See this, right here folks, is a prime example of horrible trolling. All these people bashing left and right day in and day out makes the whole thing look worse than it really is. This offsets the behavior of trolls that want to take it to the next level by making extremely overbloated statements, and it only makes you look like an idiot in front of everyone by exploiting these stupid hyperboles.

It's like you guys are trolling yourselves.

I owned the PS3 on its first anniversary but if I owned it a year before, Ridge Racer 7 was all I needed. Hell, I got Ridge Racer 7 and Uncharted the day I bought my PS3 and I played RR7 way more than Uncharted. In fact, it's my racing game of choice on this console, 6 years running.

Not by a long shot. The 3DS was WORSE, the only game worth playing for its launch was Ridge Racer 3D.


Street fighter 4 3d Edition, Pilotwings are calling to disagree.

2-hour day 1 update (plus another ~15 min update for NSMBU). Mii verse went down almost immediately. Lots of people unable to get it to connect to their wireless network. . .

I don't know about worst launch ever, but it's definitely a botched, rushed job. I feel sorry for the kids who get one on Christmas morning and excitedly hook it up, only to wait through hours of updates for stuff that should've been present out of the box. Such a buzzkill.


Not really botched outside maybe the 1 gig patch, because servers on any launch will pretty much be pushed and not being able to connect wireless could be a user issue.


It's been two days and I still can't connect to download an update that doesn't even give everything they promised the Wii U would have.

As of now, I have a totally bare system that barely plays games and occasionally locks up with absolutely 0 online functionality.

This is completely botched. If you don't think it is, then you are jaded or delusional.

RR7?

That, to date is one of the most horrible racing games I've ever played. The control of the cars was godawful. Forza 4 is the king of console racers by miles and miles.

Then again realism and simulation beat arcade racer out every time imo...
