Why did you guys buy a Wii U?

What is it that convinced you to get a Wii U over a PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360?

I thought the PS4 would have PS3 backwards compatibility, so I sold my PS3 to pay for a Wii U, figuring I should sell it then before it dropped in value. I didn't want an Xbox 360 because...well...I already had a PS3, and there weren't any 360-exclusive games I wanted, and I don't like the idea of having to pay to play games online.

Yeah...things didn't really work out.

Already had both a 360 ( which I traded as that is the worst purchase anyone can make) and a PS3 ( still have it).

Plus the fact that I've always "mained" Nintendo with Sony supporting ( sans the Wii).
We impose order on the chaos of organic evolution. You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it.

To play the first party games they'll eventually release.

Seriously, that's the number one reason anyone buys a Nintendo console...could you imagine someone owning a Nintendo console and never playing one of the first party games?

Good exclusives.
Mega Man Powered Up is the best PSP exclusive and you know it.

Well I own a Blu-ray/Netflix station 3
And I traded my X-box 360 for my Wii U. I got the Wii U to play good games.
If I go to work, who's going to play all my games?

Because I'm a Nintendo fanboy, I buy all Nintendo systems at launch, and I only buy Nintendo systems.

I haven't yet, but will in hoping for a One Piece game due to One Piece being on several systems already.
