Each hour using my WiiU has cost 6$

TC is talking about total cost of WiiU purchase divided by hours of usage. Which is the appropriate way to calculate entertainment value. Consider that you may pay $12 for a ticket to see a 2-hour movie; you're paying $6 an hour for entertainment.

Turns out that, for 'core' gamers, video games are actually a remarkably cost-effective source of entertainment. The hobby has a high initial entry cost, but excellent return on investment in terms of entertainment hours per dollar.

Is there a way to see total hours instead of hours by month? Thought I'd ask...thanks if anyone knows!

Adding up the hours but not the cost of games it's about $2/hour. Then again, I was able to rent one game for free and got one game for free (nsmbu Black Friday old navy promo). Only VC was all the 30 cent games.
