Wii U: A Supplementary Console?

If read with an open mind, this makes a lot of sense. I love my Wii U, and I realize it's a supplementary console, because I need a larger online community and better third party support than is given from other consoles.

But I can't get Zelda anywhere else. :)

I never place any console as supplementary. Makes it sound like a console is inferior.

Nothing wrong with it being supplementary to a PC (awaits the oncoming storm)

Once a guy told me about how a couple years ago, when 7th gen was new, a Microsoft employee recommended that he buy a Wii and a 360 and get a "complete gaming experience" for the same price as a PS3. It kind of does make sense.

This. It's a main console with a ton of great games, regardless of sales. People who call this a complementary console should be ashamed to call themselves gamers.

Pretty much. I've called it complementary, but it's the same thing. I just can't look at the Wii U (and the Wii before it) as main consoles. They'll miss out on far too many games, and they offer far too few features compared to what Sony and Microsoft offer. It's a good second choice console if you're going to buy a second one, but it's just not ever going to be the prime first choice.

90% of the PS4 and Xbox One library is shared with the PC. The main difference is, is that the PC receives most exclusive games, has cheaper games and with a decent PC... the games look and run better.

Yeah basically if you want the best of both worlds you gotta have Nintendo for the most fun games and Sony for the best third party. Why deprive yourself by stubbornly sticking with only one?
Sometimes you want cherry pie and other times you might want pecan. Variety is the spice of life and all that. Options are good know wut i mean vern?

The Wii had many of the best games of the 7th generation. And missing out on those is alright? Really, you've turned into nothing more than a common troll -__-

Nice. You've attacked me twice in your last two posts replying to me while I've never attacked you on this board. Keep up the good work.
