Why did you buy a Wii U or why are you waiting to buy a Wii U?

#1WhiteKilla666Posted 8/16/2013 3:49:13 PM
I'm waiting for:

1. Account system to not be so anticonsumer
2. Region locking to go away
3. Games I want to buy (so far just Earthbound and Pikmin 3)

What about you

I buy all my Nintendo consoles on day one, I was there for the Gamecube, Wii, Wii U, DS Lite, 3DS, etc. I'm going to buy the console regardless so I might as well buy it soon that later. The only time I felt truly cheated was the 3DS price cut. That did bother me a lot.

You didn't buy the NES, GB, GBP, GBC, SNES, VB, GBA, GCN, GBA SP, GBM, etc on day one?

I'd love to add Wind Waker HD to my list of good titles but from the screens and videos it's evident they are intent on ruining the game with terrible bloom.

Primary reasons:
Nintendo games in HD, finally
Unique, exclusive third party games if Wiimotes are still supported in the future (like Red Steel 2 and MadWorld)

Secondary reasons:
Off TV play
Backwards compatible

Not really sure why you'd buy one otherwise.

The biggest reason I bought it was Pikmin 3, because gonna-be-best-game-ever ect. (and I was only slightly disappointed by the game).
But of course the main franchises (Zelda/Mario/Metroid?) and not so "main"-franchises (Kirby/FE/"X"/paper mario?) were big factors.

For comparision, my reasons for PS4 are by now: "KH3","FFXV"(<-last chance for Squareenix),"Dark Souls 3?","Persona 5?"......and thats it, not a single other game on the horizon that I even remotely want to play

And just to be fair, my reasons for XOne "maybe its fun to destroy one"
