Off screen play during sporting events is AWESOME. I actually had a friend over and traded him my 2nd Wii U. I purchased it for a now ex-GF, and he agreed to take it in exchange for a suit (in his wedding this year and we are buying) along with some other items. It was a very far deal, and he can't stop playing it.

The thing most people forget is 2013 will not have many games being released, because game developers are creating for Wii U as well as next gen consoles. The Wii U will offer more opportunities for new games as well as new IPs. It is worth the purchase. Lastly, while it may seem like a lot of money, historically speaking the cost of the console and games are cheaper today than at any time (adjusting for inflation). I remember spending $50 on NES or $60 for a SNES game. Now they are $5 on the VC.

Right now I have to say no, it's not. But that's because I paid £400 for it and I barely use it 1 hour a day right now.

Hopefully in time it will come good.

I'm still in the "not sure" category...

If my funds were much better, I'd say yes for sure. There are plenty of games I want for the system and playing it, it's a lot of fun.

But, it also set me back a little (as with any entertainment product of this price-range). I mostly wanted it because I'm a tech-addict, I like messing around with new devices etc.

(FYI I'm 26 - so it's all my money that pays for it etc).

I probably should have waited, but I got the system when it was discounted by a fair amount already and I am having tonnes of fun with it.

Bottom line, if you can afford it, go for it.

Where on Earth did you buy from?

It's been very much worst the purchase for me, bought it Day 1 in the UK and I've got about 140 hours use of it according to the daily log doing various things. I have 6 disc games, 5 eShop games. Regret none of my choices so far. I play games more now thanks to the Gamepad and off-TV play.
