Why did you buy a Wii U?

Games. The Wii U will eventually get a lot of great games. But besides Wii U games, there are Wii games, Virtual Console games, WiiWare games. The Wii U already has an excellent library of games from many platforms.

For games of course. I've yet to own a Nintendo system that disappointed me.

The gamepad. (The lower than I expected price didn't hurt either.) The pad looked to bring something new to the table and excited me. Had it come with just a standard controller I probably wouldn't have had any interest.

Yes some games like Zombi U and Lego City grabbed my interest but the way the pad was integrated into these games still sold me on the console the most.

Although I personally did not buy one, though I received it as a gift, I would have bought It for the name alone. I own all consoles during their gens so this wouldnt be any different.

Exactly. Games are the main function of any console. Buying a console for games goes without saying. The Wii U game pad and it's possible future uses is the main selling point for the machine. I agree that if this thing was packaged with a "standard" controller similar to the Wii U Pro. I probably wouldn't own one right now either.

That five second clip of the Wii Sports golf demo using the game pad was what got me. Lol.

Pikmin 3.

Still waiting, Nintendo...

Everything else the Wii-U does or doesn't do, doesn't matter to me.

Almost exclusively for MH3U. Thankfully, Nintendo announced the HD remake of my all-time favorite Zelda, so there are now two games on the system that interest me.
