Guys why would I buy a WiiU when PS4 and Xbox720 are coming out later this year?

Why would you buy a PS4 or 720, when PS5 and Xbox 1080 will be out in half a decade?

Why would you buy an Xbox720, period?

You should buy both the Wii U and the PS4, really. Both systems will have great exclusives.

Because you can't play Mario, Zelda, X, and Smash Bros. on it.

Given all that we've heard about the next Xbox, I'm surprised people still have any excitement for it at all. It seems like having a Wii U and PS4 will be the way to go this generation.

The PS4 impresses me tech-wise, but not game-wise yet. I see a lot of promise, however. It just looks to me that games like Knack and Killzone: Shadow Fall are games with new coats of paint.

With the Wii U, I see a lot of promise, and I already know of the stalwarts coming out for it. I also know that due to the Gamepad, the Wii U will get quite a few quirky, neat gems, not to mention Nintendo's big guns like Super Smash Bros., X, New Super Mario Bros. U, etc.

Yes? Buy a Wii U.
No? Don't.


This is the most intelligent logic on this board. its really that simple.

As far as I can tell from previous polls, not many want a Xbox 720.

Also, the restriction on Used games is going to drive consumers away after awhile. The Wii U has no such restriction. When third party companies see that they aren't earning enough money off the PS4 and the Xbox 720, they'll go to the Wii U.

That's my theory anyway. I could be wrong.

basically buy the Wii U for the exclusives.


and nothing else lulz.


So basically the same for the other consoles. Why would you buy Battlefield 4 on the PS4 when you could get it on PC and have a better game?

Honestly, I'm not seeing anything that makes me want to get a PS4, and certainly not the Xbox when I have a PC capable of playing pretty much any game at a higher resolution and framerate than either console is capable of. The Wii U, however, will have Nintendo's games, and regardless of what names people want to call me for liking them, I will continue to like them.
