No it's not doing anything innovative, as someone said it's another HD console. I'll get one when they get cheaper, get some hardware improvements (battery life), and develop a much larger library of exclusive titles.
Until then I'm not thinking about it.

My first console of this gen. was a Wii and years later it sees very little action. I've lost a lot of faith in Nintendo and I don't see any reason to buy the WiiU at the moment. Honestly, I'm worried it's going to be the Dreamcast of the next generation of consoles.
