Why did you buy a Wii U?

Dem games bro.

Amazingly enough, there aren't one exclusive on the horizon that I'd consider buying a PS4 or X1 for.
Yet. Who knows...

Console wars are like pissing contests. So yeah.

First party games, I don't get into the epeen contest. I'll be happy to play them when they eventually come out. Im lucky and can afford one of the other consoles if I choose, but neither has appealed to me yet.

I'll just split my time between the games on Wii U and 3DS. Spring us starting to look good btw!

Free Online and X pushed me over. I was originally considering a PS4 but after E3 2013 saying PS4 online is turning into a paid subscription service, the Wii U became the only viable choice. After seeing the X trailer at E3, it pushed me over.

All the nintendo exclusives is also a serious plus to the decision.

Dark Souls? Hard?!
You clearly haven't played Resonance of Fate.

I bought mine because it was reduced from 250 to 120 back in April and I couldnt resist at that price. At the time the trade in for the console was 140 so it seemed like a safe bet to buy it and just sell it if I hated it.

You aren't the "official" anything of gamefaqs...

The exclusives and the promise of more.

Nintendo still makes that are almost impossible to find on other systems nowadays. It's nice playing a colourful, fun game every now and then.

Typing on a phone, so ignore all spelling mistakes. Damn autocorrect.

Nintendo 1st party games are looking the goods yet again.

Also nintendo also does get some pretty unique 3rd party games sometimes as well.

So looking forward to X (though i'm not sure if monolith count as 2nd party now) and Bayonetta 2 though I also heard Mistwalker were making a game for Wii U which sounds awesome, I'd like a sequel to "the last story" I really liked the cast in that game.

Monster Hunter & Rayman Legends.

Its just a shame they made me wait half a year to play Rayman cos it went multi platform.

I bought a Wii U (on launch day) because I wanted to play Nintendoland and New Super Mario Bros. U.
