It's pretty cool that we all got to own the system before it was "released".

By this time next year (hell, in the next 6 months), the Wii U is going to be a lot more popular. It's been a rough first few months, but with the latest system update, Nintendo finally feels ready to advertise this thing. A stream of quality games is supposedly coming out at the end of the year- at least one good game for the last 5 months leading up to 2014.

In a lot of ways, it feels like we all got to try the system before it *officially* launched.

With some games and future updates, this system has a bright future. Like the 3DS, we'll all look back at the Wii U's first 6 months and laugh.

In that case, I can't wait for the "Wii U Beta Ambassador" promotion.

I am crossing my fingers for us getting something neat on Wii U like we did with the 3DS.

Probably won't see the light of day until a price drop comes. But when it does have a price drop......
Maybe the reward will be one free digital first party Wii U game?

I really don't think we'll get any kind of "apology" service this time around. Unlike 3DS, which launched with PilotWIngs and SteelDiver, I'd wager they consider NintendoLand and NSMB U to be quality enough "real" games and thus owe us nothing (which they don't).

They don't want to make it a habit to have to make it up to early adopters.
