Each hour using my WiiU has cost 6$

When I get Earthbound, and DKCTF that number will go below 5$/hr.

Do you think this is a fair amount to pay for a hobby?

It's a hobby... Who cares? It's all up to how much you want to spend. Who am I to judge?

I wasn't aware the Wii U charged people by the hour... What a jerk.
Oh, do you mean power usage?

$6 per hour due to power usage is crazy even if you calculate in your hdtv.

I know, he also says that when he will get some new games it will go down...
What are you talking about TC?

I assume he's calculating it by "Cost of a Wii U" divided by "hours spent playing Wii U".

After you've played DKC:TF, do you not plan on using your Wii U again?

Also, I'm guessing you don't like going to the movies then?

I imagine this:

(cost of console + cost of games) / number of hours played = cost per hour

Or maybe he's not factoring the games. Your guess is as good as mine.

Yes, this is how I calculated.


Movies around here cost 12$ nowadays, so it's not a huge difference.

If that's how it works, Monster Hunter has knocked my cost per hour down to corroded pennies
