Buying a WiiU just for earthbound.

I was going to get one for Smash Bros and SMTxFE but Nintendo just sealed the deal.

MH3U is all you need a Wii U for, and the only reason I bought one. Maybe MH4 will come as well and then it will be more than worth it.

Funny enough, it's about the same price as buying a complete copy of Earthbound.

If I had the money I'd buy a Wii U right now for Earthbound and Virtual Console alone.

Honestly, I think Nintendo could gain considerable "cred" with the masses and boost console sales somewhat if they made the Wii VC immediately, fully available on the eShop and advertised the hell out of that feature. Perhaps lowered game prices by a few bucks to be more in line with what the mobile crowd is used to. Wii U would be solidified as THE retro system, with a library of classic games instantly available and playable on the gamepad.

They won't do that, though. Still, even if Nintendo could release a healthy number of games every week to get people going on the eShop, it could be big if managed properly.
