What system for my kids?

#1WiiU111812Posted 11/26/2012 2:45:33 AM
I purchased two wii u systems for Christmas. I was wondering which one to give my children and which one to keep for myself and the misses. Children are 5 & 3. I have a deluxe and a basic. Your input is appreciated.

Kids are sooo spoiled these days. When I was 5 I got an nes and was happy with it. Get them that.

I can't help but wonder, how is my opinion of any matter in this situation?

I wasn't sure if the white game pad stains easily or not. I know black will show more fingerprints but the Black probably won't stain. Also, should I hook the systems up and download the update before we wrap the systems up for Christmas?

Your kids will appreciate playing from the get go. On the other hand, it would be a nice practical lesson of patience for them if you would update the system right in front of them. Its either instant gratification or a life long lesson.

I'd give them the white Wii U, i believe that kids at that age aren't mature enough to understand how careful you have to be with a system to not get any fingerprints on it. But they will understand that they must not dirty the system. Any filth they leave on the system (that sounds strange ;p) will be theirs forever. They will mess it up but on the other hand, they will learn their lesson and become better because of it.

-- White for kids is good. In addition to the dirt vs. prints business, they'll find it quicker when it inevitably ends up under furniture.
-- Definitely do the updates before Christmas. It's Christmas. You want them to enjoy their toys. Also you'll have a chance to see how each color looks in either room or return in case of a defect.
-- If you're planning on taking advantage of the Deluxe's digital bonus and extra storage, consider what titles you might be downloading and who'll be playing them.


Can you swap controllers between systems? That seems like a pretty decent option if it's available too.

Thanks for all of the input. It looks like the will be getting the white system. I think I'm going to run the update on each system this weekend so they are ready to go upon opening them. Do you know if the digital downloads can be used on up to two systems like the ds downloads?
