jedinat posted...TalentedM posted...What does the Wii not do that the PC can do? I compiled a list in my head and so far my Wii U can do all of those and didn't cost me the 900$ I spent on my gaming PC (not including the steam games and $350 monitor I have for it).
Don't get me wrong, I love my Wii-U; but it can't play some of my favorite games, like King's Quest VI, Warcraft 3, Diablo 2, or Star Wars Battlefront 2. I also can't do serious school work on it. You can't seriously be trying to back up that blanket statement? The Wii-U can't even play my CDs. I love the system, and I like what it offers, but there is no way you can seriously be suggesting that the PC can't do anything it can't.

We don't do Thanksgiving in my country, so I have the spare cash for a WiiU.

Oh wow, just wow. This is the list that would never end?....
I give up on this community. This is the day and post where I just can't even think that people exist like this. What kind of statement is this?
It can't play CDs or my games from 10+ years ago!
It can't play my snes cartredges either or my xbox games despite being the same format. It also can't run photoshop or any other programs it isn't built for.
Did you just ignore my whole point I made? I said it doesn't replace a PC and was never meant to. What don't you get about it. It will never and can't replace a PC just like none of the others can either.
You can't seriously be using this as your reasoning. Seriously... You can't.

You can't list anything because it does everything a PC can do or that you would want a PC to do for every day use. Netflix, Web Browsing (and everything that goes with it) and videogames. So... What else would you like?
calibre, ebook management
mp3tag, audiobook metadata management
interfacing/managing all my devices (a long list in itself)
manga (the way I do it)
web browsing (the way I do it)
video (all the formats)
file management (renaming/sorting, etc.)
the entire library of programs I use
I mean, come on, I shouldn't even have to start listing, it's obvious. My $150 tablet has more utility than the Wii U.

THIS! I'm twenty four, newly married and looking into buying a house. Saving for a decent down payment, closing costs, etc. and still managed to pay for a deluxe Wii U on launch.

Metazoidd posted...I don't see how it's overpriced in any way shape or form. If you think about it, a gpu is usually what ~100 bucks, a cpu same plus everything else AND the gamepad. 350 isn't a lot especially for a new system.
360 launch price: $400
PS3 launch price: $400, $500, or $600
And $300-350 is worse... how?
Also, you get Nintendoland with the deluxe purchase included. I actually don't know if you got anything with the 360 or PS3 at launch, so I'd need somebody to confirm either way for me.

Tell him to become one.
It's his fault he doesn't have a better job.
